The visitors went down to ten men soon after with Sam Connors shown a straight red to leave his side with an uphill task.
Shannon Pocock got in on the act to score Fairford’s fourth as he converted a penalty before the break.
Dan Bailey scored his first of the afternoon just after half-time to make it 5-1, before his rasping low drive made it 6-1. The midfielder then netted his hat-trick to make it seven before Drake pulled a goal back for the visitors.
It was an emphatic win for the Reds, who avenged their late defeat back in August with a win which takes them further up the Hellenic Division One West table.
