Sleaford Town cruised into the main draw of the United Counties League Knockout Cup as Holwell Sports were hit for six last Tuesday.
Michael Hayden completed a first-half hat-trick at the league newcomers, while Ben Greenwood and Dan Worthington were also on target as Town raced into a 5-0 half-time lead in the preliminary round tie.
Hayden completed the scoring with his fourth just six minutes into the second-half and Town then withstood pressure from the improved home side to claim back-to-back clean sheets.
The win sets up a home first-round clash with Holbeach United on Wednesday, September 26.
Jamie Shaw’s free-scoring forwards have now scored 11 goals in two matches and host Wellingborough Town in their next league match on Saturday, September 1 (ko 3pm).
