Eastbourne Borough recorded their most comprehensive pre-season victory yet with a 4-0 drubbing of Margate on Tuesday night.

Frankie Raymond opened the scoring from the spot before doubling his tally courtesy of a wonderful free kick - a set-piece that was soured, though, by the sight of Chris Shephard limping from the field.

Mani Akokhia curled a corner home to make it 3-0 before Ollie Rowe bundled home in the final minute to complete the rout.

The Sports will welcome an Aldershot XI to Priory Lane on Saturday to complete their pre-season programme ahead of the new season start on August, 17.
