Stringers hit Uckers for four in Boxing Day feast

Hailsham Town had a Boxing Day to remember, recording a 4-0 win over AFC Uckfield at The Beaconsfield.

The Stringers opened the scoring on 17 minutes when Danny Leach scored his 13th of the season from inside the box.

A second – the pick of the bunch – followed on 38 minutes when Simon Stevens rattled home a free kick from 30 yards.

The hard-working Trevor McCreadie made it three on 65 minutes and Ryan Fletcher’ rounded off the scoring.
