Gainsborough Trinity 0-6 Slough Town

Matthew Lench's hat-trick helped Southern Premier League leaders Slough into round two of the FA Cup with a six-goal demolition of Gainsborough Trinity.

The Rebels took a deserved lead when Lench danced into the box and stroked the ball into the bottom corner.

He notched his second seconds after the restart as he curled a shot into the top corner, while Manny Williams squared for Chris Flood to make it three five minutes later.

Williams got the goal his performance deserved midway through the second half as he coolly slotted past Henrich Ravas from inside the box.

Substitute Sean Fraser smashed in a rebound from a parried shot to make it 5-0 before Lench completed his hat-trick from Warren Harris' pull-back.

Gavin James sent an injury time penalty wide as Slough missed a late chance for a seventh.
