AFC Totton scored four as they swept aside Willand Rovers on Wednesday night to give Dan Sackman the perfect start as permanent boss, writes Doug Webber.

Braces from attacking duo Ethan Taylor and Hisham Kasimu helped their side climb up to third in Southern League Division One South on a windy night in Devon.

Sackman was taking charge for the first time since his role as interim boss was made permanent by the club. And the visitors broke the deadlock with less than a minute played as a slick attacking move allowed Taylor to rifle past George Burton.

Following Willand hitting the post, Kasimu doubled the Stags' lead, cutting back from the byline to lash home from a tight angle.

Shortly after the break, Kasimu added his second and the away side’s third as he rounded the keeper to tuck away unchallenged.

With 10 minutes to go, Taylor secured his brace with a diving header after some stunning interplay down the left.

On-loan striker Thomas Bath scored a late consolation for the home side, but it was not enough to wipe off the Stags’ smiles.
