Farnham Town manager Paul Johnson was delighted with his side after they swept aside Guildford City 6-0 at The Memorial Ground on Tuesday night to return to the top of the Combined Counties Premier Division South.

Town dominated from the start, and finally took the lead in the 36th minute when Michael Kinsella headed home from close range after the visitors failed to clear a corner.

The home side doubled their advantage just before half-time. Charlie Postance flicked the ball to Darryl Sanders, who curled his effort into the top corner from 25 yards out on 45 minutes.

It was 3-0 in the 65th minute. A short corner was worked to Sanders, and his cross was headed home by Adam Liddle.

Liddle made it 4-0 three minutes later when he volleyed home from Joe Jackson's cross.

Substitute Owen Dean scored the fifth goal when he thumped home from ten yards on 83 minutes.

Dean completed the scoring on 86 minutes when he headed from a corner, as Town ran out convincing winners in front of a crowd of 335.

"I think it was our most complete performance of the season so far," said Johnson.

"From start to finish we were good all the way through. Their goal lived a charmed life. Their keeper had a really good first half, and the post was hit a few times. We were good all over the pitch.

"The boys were a bit disappointed with how Saturday panned out. We spoke beforehand about the league being our bread and butter. We've been good in the league, and I think we kicked on. The boys delivered perfectly.

"We're not putting pressure on the boys, as long as they do what's asked and put in a shift – and they all put in a great shift.

"Darryl was good. You could see straight away his touch was immense, and his goal was thoroughly deserved.

"We do look at short corners – we can mix it both ways. When we go short, we draw people out. It isolates Ryan Kinnane, Michael and Charlie in there. It's something we look at and it keeps people on their toes.

"Owen Dean came off the bench with two goals, Shamal Edwards came on and looked bright, and so did Dean Rule in the final third. It was good to get Guy Hollis on as well to make his first appearance for Farnham in competitive football. He's happy, and we're happy.

"The substitutes all know their roles and everyone knows their part. We have so many different options. It's going to be a long season.

"Everything is going according to plan, and we're in a good place. We'll enjoy these moments, because you have plenty of downs in football, but it's only good when you win something."

Next up for Farnham is a home game against Epsom & Ewell in the league on Saturday (3pm), before a trip to Sandhurst Town next Tuesday night (October 31) and a home game against Spelthorne Sports next Saturday (November 4), and Johnson is looking forward to a run of league games.

"We go again on Saturday," he said. "The boys will be looking forward to it. The squad is almost at full health."
