LONGLEVENS have shown why they deserve to be the champions for a second time with a victory over Berkeley Town.

Town took the lead on ten minutes from a Sam Strickland shot that took a deflection and looped over the home keeper Mark Harris.

The home side were level four minutes later when Craig Beaton volleyed home a Luke Kavanaugh cross.

Brad Martin then provided the chance for brother Craig Martin to put the home side in front on 25 minutes.

Berkeley levelled on the hour with Paul Brooks turning in a Chris Andrews cross.

Two goals in the last 15 minutes saw Longlevens home, Dave Merrick back heading into the net on 80 minutes and Brad Martin netting the fourth on 84 minutes.
