Wealdstone crashed to a heavy 4-0 defeat away to Maidenhead United on Boxing Day.

Goals from Ryan Upward, Josh Coley, Danilo Orsi-Dadamo, and Nathan Blissett sealed the three points for the Magpies over the Stones at York Road.

It was a dream start for the hosts as Ryan Upward raced through on goal and slotted the ball past goalkeeper Stuart Moore in the fifth minute of play.

In the 19th minute of the match Stones Moses Emmanuel had the ball in the net but it was ruled out because of a foul from the striker.

Midfielder Alex Dyer crafted a through ball to Dennon Lewis down the left, he cut a cross back to Emmanuel who knocked it past Aaron Massey, but Taye Ashby-Hammond got a palm on his effort and Maidenhead clear.
