IT was a five-star performance by Jonny Sutcliffe as George won by their record score.

He hit five in a game more competitive than the score implied and put George on a drive for a mid-table finish.

While happy with the score manager Colin Gibson was more pleased his side kept a clean sheet.

Adam Gray got the first slotting it under the keeper.

Joe Connor put the ball over the top for Sutcliffe to get his first and then his pace took him through to grab a second, making it 3 - 0 at the break.

In the second period Sutcliffe hit a corner directly into the goal before Connor Fowler got a fifth from his pass.

A tap-in and another run through at pace brought his other goals.

Keeper Jamie Donnellan made a point-blank save near the end and Marc Wallis had a fine game throughout.
