Hinckley AFC 2 - 0 Heather St John
Two Ryan Seal penalties, one in each half, saw Atletico beat their landlords in a game devoid of much action and felt like a pre-season friendly in the glorious sunny day.

The heat seemed to stifle the players, and indeed the referee did allow a couple of drinks breaks during the match, but still goal chances were few and far between. Fraser Doyle fired wide for Heather, and James Williams headed straight at Ben Allsop for AFC, then Javia Roberts set up Ryan Seal only for his effort to drift wide. Just before half time a little piece of magic from Paul Sullivan saw him turn Levi Dawson in the area, but the Heather defender then brought him down with the referee pointing to the penalty mark. Seal stepped up and made no mistake converting the spot kick, scoring his 51st goal of the season.

Heather looked to hit back in the second half and Michael Tweed forced Haydn Whitcombe to palm away his 30 yard effort, then on the hour Hinckley were awarded a second penalty as Roberts ran through the right channel into the area and as he took the ball past Allsop, the Heather goalkeeper's momentum brought down Roberts for a penalty kick. Seal again stepped up to score from the spot giving AFC a two goal lead. Darious Darkin came close to adding a third, before Hinckley old boys Ross Clarke and Deqwon Ebanks had efforts on goal for Heather. Hinckley held on for another clean sheet and 3 points maintaining second place in the league.
