PRESTWICH Heys enjoyed a successful Easter with a maximum six-point haul from two home games.

Will Shawcross fired a hat-trick as Heys won Saturday’s hard-fought encounter against Garstang 4-1.

Heys started brightly and took the lead after just five minutes, Danny White crossing for Shawcross to head in at the far post.

Jacob Holt saw a header cleared off the line and Lee Grimshaw was denied by Garstang keeper Will Kitchen.

The game came to a halt in the 26th minute, when Heys keeper Mike Smith and Garstang striker Alan Coar clashed heads with some force, Smith departing having lost a tooth and broken his jaw, Coar requiring stitches in his head and also needing a trip to hospital.

Late in the half Heys doubled their lead, Shawcross once again benefiting from an excellent from Danny White.

A minute before half-time Garstang pulled a goal back when centre-half Josh Westwood headed powerfully in.

After the visitors spurned a fine chance to equalise Max White made it 3-1 from the penalty spot when, after a quick free-kick, Paul Socha was caught late by the keeper.

With a minute left Shawcross clinched his first hat-trick for Heys to cap a fine individual performance.

Heys followed up with a deserved 1-0 victory over AFC Darwen on Easter Monday.

The score-line did not reflect Heys dominance of a game they controlled throughout.

It was not until the 63rd minute – moments after Darwen had been reduced to 10 men for a second yellow card – they got the only goal.

Brad Sixsmith, man-of-the-match on Saturday, tapped in Shawcross’ ball across goal to give them a deseved victory. Heys complete the season at AFC Blackpool on Saturday (3pm).
