Newport Pagnell Town 0 Holbeach United 4
Saturday, 22 December 2007
Newport were blown away by the Tigers' stunning first half onslaught at Willen Road.
Tommy Treacher gave Holbeach the lead on the quarter hour with a clever chip over stranded keeper Josh Hill and sixty seconds later a second goal from Liam Nimmo, set up by Ian Dunn, left the Swans shell shocked.
Omar Joof added a 24th minute third for the Tigers following good work by Matt Warfield and Treacher and the visitors' victory was sealed on the half hour by Nimmo's 23rd goal of the season from Dunn's flick on.
With goalkeeper Josh Hill forced out of the action at the break defender Lee Tinsley donned the custodian's jersey for the second half and kept a clean sheet.
James Fletcher was closest to a Swans consolation after the break, heading against the bar.
