Resilient defending by BJFF kept YMCA at bay until Bishop reacted quickly to take a free-kick to James Cowburn, who scored from close range.

Cowburn dispossessed a defender and teed-up Bishop to score YMCA’s third on the stroke of half-time.

YMCA continued to play some superb one-touch football and quickly added a fourth goal when Bishop’s cross was met by Isaac Eastham, who set up Ross Hart to fire home.
