The 34-year-old forward praised the efforts of all the team to battle back from 3-1 down at the end of the first period.

“We came back from 3-1 down, we kept the pressure on them, and it was a tough game as both teams played tough.

“We kept our heads straight and focused to get the job done.

“8-4 says it all really.”

The former Haringey Racers and Lee Valley Lions winger admitted they had some strong words in the changing after the opening period.

“We had a few words exchanged shall we say in the changing room, buck your ideas up, and we came out strong.”

The experienced forward also praised the youngsters for their work rate and feels their energy made a difference.

“They had a couple of young legs, but we’ve got younger players thank god, to cover me,” he joked

Before going on to jokingly praise team-mate Alan Lack for his brace late on in the game to seal the points.

“Even the youngsters like Lacky, he done really well, man of the match.

“He’s definitely an up and coming player from the junior development.”
