Pendle Renegades were soundly beaten 6-0 by a ruthless Settle United team, who maintained their 100% record.

Things started badly for the visitors as, after only five minutes John Beckwith was allowed a free header inside the six-yard box to make it 1-0.

The same player added a second midway through the half after a long ball caught the wind and presented him with a one on one.

Beckwith sealed his hat-trick on the half hour mark when he smashed home a rebounded effort from close range, and captain Shaun Airey made it 4-0 from the penalty spot just before half-time.

Renegades had the wind in the second half and did show more spirit, and Beckwith had to wait until 15 minutes from time to add a fourth to his tally, and with five minutes to go he rounded off a fine display as he added his fifth goal from inside the box.

A terrible performance from Pendle, but full credit to Settle, who were outstanding and dominated all areas.
