AFC Hayes returned to action with a bang last night as they put five past Leighton Town without reply.
Ian Crane’s side had seen their last two fixtures fall victim to the weather but showed no signs of rust here as they put the Evo-Stik Division One Central strugglers to the sword.
Tony Mendy scored a marvelous hat-trick and Danny Buckles and James Walters were also on target in the impressive away victory.
Elsewhere, a Reece Yorke (pictured) penalty was not enough to stop Northwood crashing out of the Middlesex Charity Cup at Enfield Town.
Enfield stormed to a three-goal lead before Yorke’s spot-kick gave the Woods a glimmer of hope and Town finished the job with a fourth in the second period.
Harefield United edged out Hertford Town in the Spartan South Midlands Premier, Ricardo Cannon scoring twice and Gary James getting the goals in a 3-2 win.
Gordon Bartlett’s Wealdstone were held to a 1-1 draw at Leiston after Tom Pett’s opener was cancelled out.
