A difficult encounter in terrible conditions was a test for Barno but to a man they rolled up their sleeves and battled for the three points against Mistley.

An early Ryan Johnson near post finish from a corner and an own goal caused by an early press saw a 2-0 half time lead.

Man of the match James Bolandi rifled in a left foot strike to make it three before the hosts pulled one back and a fantastic save late on by Luke Johnson preserved the two goal margin.

With minutes to go a Barnston break led to a calm finish by Ryan Johnson to make the final score 4-1.
