The Scholars took the lead after nine minutes. Liam Kirton tried his luck from outside the penalty area and the effort looped over helpless goalkeeper Ryan Cheshire for his third goal in three starts this season.

The lead was doubled four minutes later when Joe Brown stole into the box and fired into the net.

Chasetown threatened to run riot and made it 3-0 on 18 minutes with George Cater firing across goalkeeper Cheshire from the angle of the box.

Tividale almost pulled one back before the interval but makeshift centre back Will Whieldon cleared the ball off the line.

Chasetown were back on their game in the second half.

In the 58th minute, they finally added the fourth. Jack Dundas turned sharply and fired goalwards from 25 yards. Keeper Cheshire could only palm out as far as Cater who tapped into an empty net.

Debutant Chase keeper Chris Fletcher was called into action midway through the second half tipping an effort from Emile Beckford onto the crossbar.

Chasetown went close to further goals with headers from Dundas and Jordon Dodd going just over the bar.

Tividale struck the crossbar again in the final 10 minutes with a Brad Welding free kick rattling the crossbar.

Levi Reid added a fifth goal in the 88th minute rounding the keeper and slipping the ball into the empty net.
