Welwyn went ahead after a Finlay Wheeler free-kick was spilled by the Ware keeper, Josh Staddon on hand to convert the rebound and Harry Suggs’ cross-shot was deflected in for the Royals second.

Wiltshire added his second and Pegasus’ fourth with a shot that deflected in off a Ware defender before Ware pulled one back from a well-worked corner kick.

But Harry Sugg had the last word with a low drive to complete the scoring.

The only downside to the performance was they didn’t convert a good portion of their chances but that was a minor grumble in a great showing.

A Joe Ashton free-kick from distance clipped the crossbar as did Suggs right-wing cross-shot.

And Wiltshire was extremely unfortunate not to complete his hat-trick after a snap shot which appeared to cannoned in and out from the back of the goal wasn’t given by the referee.
