FULL TIME: AFC Fylde 1 Accrington Stanley 4

First published in Sport

MIDFIELDER Will Hatfield scored all four goals as Accrington Stanley claimed a convincing FA Cup first round win at non-league AFC Fylde in Leam Richardson's first game as permanent boss.

Richardson was confirmed as Stanley's new manager on Thursday, replacing the departed Paul Cook, and Hatfield put the Reds ahead in the 32nd minute against Fylde.

The former Leeds youngster doubled Stanley's lead on the stroke of half time before completing his hat-trick with 13 minutes remaining.

Hatfield even added a fourth in the 86th minute, although Adam Farrell pulled a goal back for Fylde in stoppage time.
