1947 – Early nerves from Berko as they concede two free-kicks in dangerous locations, and then Eddie Farmer makes a rare mistake, but the visiting goal survives.

1952 – First real chance for Berko as Matty Wardle puts Lawrence Bunker through, only for home keeper Mike Underwood to make contact. The ref points to the spot, and harshly in my view, shows Underwood a red card.

1955 – Bunker duly despatches from the spot. 1-0

1958 – And it’s two goals now, Bunker turns provider as his through ball finds Aaron Usmani who chips home. 2-0

2001 – After brief Tring pressure, Berko return up the slope to claim a corner. Josh Chamberlain curls in and Bunker nods home. 3-0

2006 – Bunker bags a 21 minute hat-trick, exploiting hesitancy in the home defence to poke home. 4-0

2011 – Smart work from Si Carmichael snuffs out the danger as he nods back to Farmer.

2014 – Tring show they still have the desire as Tony Fields fires in and Farmer makes a save diving to his left.

2018 – Tring’s Stewart King leaves a foot in as he chases a short ball to Farmer so send the keeper down, and somehow escapes a caution.

2029 – After a decent spell from Tring, it is the Comrades who claim the next goal, Steve Hawes drills a superb shot into the top left corner. 5-0

2031 – It’s half-time and the Comrades are leading 5-0.

2045 – We’re off at Pendley.

2049 – Usmani bursts through but clips wide under pressure.

2051 – Russ Clark replaces Dale Sears for the Comrades.

2055 – Tring won’t lie down, but Berko look dangerous on the break. From a neat ball, Bunks takes it round the keeper and sidefoots home. 6-0

2059 – Aaron Usmani heads narrowly over as Berko hit Tring on the break.

2100 – Tring underline their spirit as former Berko Town man Tony Fields volleys home a superb effort. 6-1

2108 – Mick makes his next change as Tony Burnett comes on for four-goal Lawrence Bunker.

2113 – Seconds after Josh Chamberlain fizzes an effort just over, Berko make their third change, Dan Wright swapping places with Matt Wardle.

2122 – Tring have refused to throw the towel in, as the game continues to veer from end to end.

2130 – It’s nearly over but both sides are working to the final whistle.

2132 – And it’s all over and Berko run out 6-1 victors.
