David Sesay and Gyliano van Velzen wrapped up a comfortable win for the Red Devils in the second half.

Spekaing to crawleytownfc.com Cioffi praised his players' 'professional attitude' and EP for doing 'themselves proud'.

The Italian said: "Well done to the players. They showed a professional attitude from the first minute to the 90th minute, in difficult conditions.

"We scored some good goals and players who needed 90 minutes got them so it was a win-win for us.

"Our opponents worked hard so congratulations to East Preston, who tried to play football and did themselves proud and I wish them all the best for the rest of the season."
