Tom Garrick bagged a hat-trick as Boston Town progressed in the FA Vase at the expense of Sleaford Town - ending their run of seven straight defeats in the competition.

Six minutes later and Richard Ford doubled the advantage as he headed home from close range.

Garrick added his second of the game in the 76th minute to put the game beyond doubt, completing his treble two minutes later.

Sunstitute Harry Grigas had the final say, getting on the scoreeshet in the 87th minute and also in the final minute, heading home after Luke White's free kick rattled the bar.

The Poachers will now visit Anstey Nomads in the second qualifying round following their 2-1 win at Hucknall Town.
