Brad Hooper then brought the hosts level when he slotted home a penalty after George Reid was fouled in the box on 24 minutes.

Liam Smith then struck for the visitors on 55 minutes, scoring from the spot after he had been brought down in the box by Marine’s Jon Beeden.

Evesham rounded off the win on 90 minutes when Elliott Kennedy poked the ball home after a good cross from the left.
