Tries from Jason Carr, James Hankey and Michael Powell, along with a Stephen Pollock conversion, made 
the score 17-0 to the hosts at half time.

Further tries in the second period by Alex Lovell and Iuean Beale and another conversion and penalty from Pollock completed the well deserved win.

Man of the match was awarded to Phil Doherty, as the result means with two matches left, Park are now 14 points ahead of third-placed Long Buckby, who have a game in hand.

Club captain Jamie Hoque said: “We spent two weeks preparing for Saturday’s fixture, running scenarios to try and stop Casuals’ wide attacking game.

“The 32-0 score line shows that all the hard work clearly paid off.

“It’s no accident that we are pushing for promotion this season. A combination of great coaching, hard work and commitment from the players, plus huge regular numbers at training, means we are now playing near our full potential and Saturday’s game was a prime example or that.”
