Bury Town’s Ryman Premier League play-off hopes received a set-back last night as Hampton & Richmond thrashed Richard Wilkins’ men 3-0.
And to make matters worse they finished the game with nine men.
Belal Aite-Ouakrim was the man who did all the damage for Hampton, netting a hat-trick within the first 50 minutes, before he was substituted after 64 minutes with the score at 3-0 to the home side.
Bury’s sad night was complete when Liam Wales was sent off with seven minutes left, followed by substitute Tanner Call two minutes later, both straight reds.
Meanwhile fellow Ryman Premier side Leiston saw their clash with Carshalton called off at 7.10pm, with the visitors still stuck on the A12 near Chelmsford after being caught up in heavy traffic.

With their being little chance of Carshalton getting to Victory Road even close to kick-off, the referee called the game off.
Elsewhere, Sam Newson was the hero for Needham Market as they got their season back on track with a 1-0 win over high-flying Soham at Bloomfields. It was a big boost of a result for Needham.
