Upwell scorers: Sergio Jimenez from 25 yards, Jack Watson a header, Matt Bruce from close range and captain Matthew Thomas with a free kick.

Manager, Karl Schultz said: “This sends out a massive statement to the league showing Barley Mow are not unbeatable.”

Upwell suffered their first home league defeat of the season 4-1 against Barley Mow in the return fixture.

Midway through the second half Upwell restored parity through a Matt Bruce penalty and looked more likely to take the lead before suffering a double sucker punch to go 3-1 down.
