PROMOTION hopefuls Hatfield Town got back to winning ways at Birchwood yesterday (Saturday).

After back-to-back defeats to Bovingdon in the league and Aubrey Cup and a goalless draw away to Hertford Heath, Town returned to form in some style at the weekend.

Trevor Lloyd and Andy Prutton's men took their recent frustrations out on a Park Street Village side that didn't know what hit them in the first 45 minutes.

The Premier Division points were already in Town's pocket by half-time with PSV 4-0 down at the break.

With the Herts Senior County League match switched to Hatfield's old ground at Birchwood as the Herns Lane pitch in WGC was unplayable, Town swamped PSV under a deluge of first-half goals.

An own goal from Chris Day set the ball rolling as early as the ninth minute, the Park Street defender slicing a clearance into his net.

Midfielder David Reade made it 2-0 just four minutes later with a thunderbolt that gave PSV keeper Tony Kerby little chance of making a save.

Two goals in the space of as many minutes from Rhys Lawrence made it 4-0 to Town before the sides swapped ends.

Lawrence made it 3-0 on 37 minutes and keeper Kerby was picking the ball out of the net again a minute later as the same Town player doubled his own personal tally with Hatfield's fourth of the afternoon.
