Rushden & Diamonds 8-0 Gateshead

Louis was relegated from the Football League with Mansfield last year
Louis has played for eight of this season's Blue Square Premier clubs

Rushden & Diamonds did their promotion chances no harm as they hit a stunning eight goals to romp to the Blue Square Premier's biggest win of the season.

Defender Jamie Stuart marked his return from injury by heading an early opener, a lead doubled by Max Porter's low shot in first-half injury time.

But Jefferson Louis hit two as Diamonds went goal crazy after the break.

Mark Byrne, Lee Tomlin, Craig Farrell and Simon Downer hit the other goals as Gateshead continued to suffer.

Rushden were also involved in last season's biggest Blue Square Premier win.

They hit nine goals past cash-strapped Weymouth's youth team at the Wessex Stadium in a Blue Square Premier game last February.
