The hosts started the second half brightly but had to wait until the 48th minute when Louis Eady fired home from 12 yards.
Plantation assumed more control of the midfield, with tough tackling performances from Jeremy Fletcher and Ethan Morley, and were rewarded with a third when Adam Whitehead played a ball behind the visiting defence for Ollie Newman to run on to and slot beyond the keeper.
Manuden Juniors 1 Pin Green Juniors 0
A neat finish from Alex Rinaldi-Jones early in the second half sealed Manuden’s victory.
