The visitors were ahead after only three minutes when Mark Carter tapped in, following up after the home keeper had palmed out a long range shot.

After 12 minutes, Glenn Tolley unleashed a shot that nestled in the bottom corner of the net to make it 2-0 and it looked like a matter of how many at this stage of the game.

The visitors were camped inside the Nottinghamshire half and spraying some good passing moves together which led to goal number three on 20 minutes through James Munson.

After 30 minutes, Bilsthorpe were awarded a penalty after Carter was hauled down, he got up and dusted himself, but the home keeper dived to his left side and palmed the penalty kick away.

As the rain began to fall again in the 44th minute, Yogi Depass gained the ball on the left wing and lobbed the keeper from 25 yards to make it 4-0 at half-time.

Depasss scored his second and his club’s fifth of the game as he fired home on 55 minutes.

Bilsthorpe looked rampant as Carter slid the ball past the home keeper to make it 6-0 on the hour .

The away side looked like they could score each time they went forward and added two in a minute after 62 and 63 minutes through Tolley and Aaron Norman.

The Bilsthorpe manager then took off his main men to give his youngster substitutes a run out and close the cup tie off.

A donation from Bilsthorpe to Rob Hornby’s blog charity Support Dogs took his running total to £303.
