Hardy On Fire At Matlock

Updated: Apr 23, 2019

Liam Hardy scored 5 goals over the Easter period.

Six points out of six over the Easter weekend moved the Bucks back into the final play-off position with just one game to go in the regular season.

On Saturday goals from Diego De Girolamo and Liam Hardy put the Bucks in early command against a Workington side that played far better than their relegation position suggested. Walker pulled one back from the spot on half-time for the visitors before Ash Young scored direct from a free-kick and Walker again scored a penalty to make the final score 3-2 to the Bucks.

It was expected to be a tight A6 'derby' at Matlock on Easter Monday but the Bucks recorded their biggest ever victory in 58 visits at Causeway Lane by six goals to nil. (It beats the 6-1 victory there in the 1957/58 season!!) Liam Hardy was the star of the show with four goals, with further efforts by Alex Brown and Diego De Girolamo doing the damage against a very lackluster home side. Match Report HERE

So the Bucks go into the last Saturday of the season on the same points as Gainsborough Trinity in the last play-off position but with a 2-goal advantage on difference. Both sides entertain clubs at the top end of the table. Gainsborough play South Shields, who can still win the league with victory as long as Farsley lose to Marine, and we entertain Warrington who are currently in 3rd place but could finish 2nd. The match with Warrington is next Saturday, the 27th at 3pm and club officials are urging supporters to be in good time to avoid queuing at the turnstiles.
