Hinckley AFC 4 - 1 Bolehall Swifts
Ryan Seal became the first player to score 50 goals for the club and Sam Agar netted his first hatrick of the season as Bolehall Swifts were comfortably beaten at St Johns Park.

Paul Sullivan returned to the starting line up after deciding to stay with the club midweek following an approach from a higher level team. However it was the Seal/Agar combination that led to the first goal on the quarter hour, with Seal doing well on the left of the area then crossing low to Agar at the far post, who turned the ball inside his marker then guided it past Tom McNulty from close in. In a fairly even next 20 minutes Swifts had a number of chances to equalise, but the closest they came was when Cameron Knight saw his long range shot go just over the bar. Heading towards a slim half time lead, two quick goals before the break gave Atletico a comfortable lead. First Sullivan, in an almost exact copy of the first goal, did well on the left, beating his marker and holding up the ball before crossing to the far post where Seal had run in and simply tapped the ball into the net, scoring perhaps the easiest of all his 50 goals for AFC. Then with a Bolehall corner just before half time, Jamal Clarke rose highest to head the ball back into midfield and Peter Williams broke away running half the length of the pitch and unselfishly squaring to Agar to score his second and Hinckley's third goal.

Bolehall came out for the second half looking to get back into the game, and Dave Yonwin had pulled one back within 5 minutes, after Jordan Francis had took the ball past Isaac Cooper on the Swifts right, then crossed low and hard into the goal area for Yonwin to blast past Haydn Whitcombe. Yonwin really should've had a second moments later but his far post header went agonisingly over the bar. McNulty was into action not long after this with Sullivan seeing his effort tipped around the post, then when Sullivan did beat McNulty, Chris Sockett was back on the goal line to clear. Yonwin again got into a good position in the area, but Clarke timed his tackle perfectly to dispossess the Swifts forward, before it was Agar's turn to see his goal bound effort scrambled off the line and away to safety. With time almost up Agar finally completed his hatrick, as James Williams went on a run down the right, drove into the area and crossed for Agar to score his third and secure the points for Hinckley.
