Matt Blenford hit a hat-trick as Heyford Athletic won the 126th Jersey Cup final after a 7-0 thrashing against Woodford United at Bicester.

Six second-half goals proved the difference as Heyford sliced through the Woodford defence time and time again.

Blenford opened the scoring after 15 minutes, converting a corner to put his side ahead.

Both sides missed first-half chances, before Blenford doubled the advantage minutes into the second period after a fine solo run.

The Heyford man was then denied a hat-trick by the woodwork, but from the rebound, a Woodford defen-der diverted the ball into his own net.

However, Blenford’s third goal soon came after he ran through the opposition’s defence to slot home.

Chris Philpott then headed in a Blenford free-kick to make it 5-0, before two goals in injury time sealed an emphatic victory.

Jon Crosthwaite hit No 6, before substitute Lee Clack completed the scoring.
