Before kick-off, Harpenden Town's Twitter account showed their starting line-up, mistakenly including Jake Anthony twice.

It was soon corrected but by the end of the afternoon visitors Crawley Green may have thought the initial announcement was correct.

The striker scored a hat-trick for the second home game in a row with Toby Syme and Joe Devaney added to the final 5-0 score.

It was the perfect way to bring the curtain down on the home part of the Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division season, although the Harps will want to wrap things up even better with trips to London Colney, this Saturday, and Aylesbury Vale Dynamos on April 23.

London Colney may have just saved their season with a 2-0 win over Holmer Green lifting them to third from bottom and above their visitors.

Colney Heath may have been officially relegated from the Southern League Division One Central but they too are looking to finish as strongly as possible.

And they managed to pick up a 1-0 success on the road at Wantage Town that may be enough to see them finish off the foot of the table.
