Bolehall Swifts 0 - 5 Hinckley AFC
Atletico returned to league action for the first time in 4 games, and swiftly dispatched Bolehall, comfortably scoring 5 goals and Tom Cross keeping a clean sheet on his debut.

With the respective league placings of the two clubs, it was expected that AFC would be in control of the game, and for large parts that's exactly what happened. Hinckley were ahead early when from a short corner Luke Richards received the ball on the right of the area and drilled a powerful shot past Jordan Spencer at his near post, the young keeper getting a hand to the ball, but not enough to keep it out. Despite some good approach work AFC had to wait until the half hour before scoring their second. A through ball for Marco Adaggio saw him run goalwards, 10 yards out from goal and just before he was about to shoot was bundled over by Rudy Misambo, a clear goal scoring opportunity for which Misambo was shown a red card. Adaggio stepped up for the spot kick and blasted it straight down the middle, giving Hinckley a 2 goal lead. This was extended right on half time when Ryan Seal released Seam Williams on the left side and he beat his marker, crossing from the byline for Adaggio to simply guide the ball past Spencer, making the half time score 0-3 to Hinckley.

The game was over as a contest 5 minutes into the second half when Adaggio played Williams on the right wing, who came inside into the area and instead of shooting, neatly clipped the ball across the face of goal for Richards to run onto and blast into the net. On the hour came the talking point of the game, when Bolehall striker Alex Pollard lost his head after he tried a headbutt to bring down Adaggio, and then following it up with a punch. Pollard was immediately shown a red card, however after a lengthy consultation the officials also decided to show Adaggio a straight red card,despite him being on the receiving end. This didn't slow Hinckley down any, and Nathan Walker unleashed a trademark curling and dipping free kick that was only just tipped onto the bar by Spencer, but the young keeper could do nothing about Hinckley's fifth. Williams again tore into the Bolehall defence from the right, and he fired in a shot from a really tight angle that curled around Spencer stuck on his goal line, and into the far corner of the net. A satisfying night for Hinckley, though yet to see the repercussions of Adaggio's red card, with the club hoping the video evidence taken on the night would exonerate him.
