Match report WELSH PREMIER

FRANK Mottram led the spree as Saints' makeshift line-up sunk struggling Ferry with an eight goal barrage.
The striker netted five times to spearhead a landslide victory as the relegated hosts bowed out of the League in miserable fashion.
Despite missing the Whelan twins and Abercrombie on British Universities' duty, Saints made a flying start.
Ferry's generous defending allowed Ian Evans to fire home from the edge of the box after just five minutes and Paul Bowyer scrambled a second two minutes later on his full first team debut.
Mottram then took centre stage, opening his account with a powerful 30-yard strike, before Shane D'Cotta replied.
Hopes of a revival were soon swept away as Mottram completed a first-half hat-trick and scored twice more within four minutes of the re-start.
Saints completed their highest-ever League win when debutant substitute Damien Currier turned in Ian Bishop's shot.
