BIRTHDAY captain Kerry Jackson thumped a hat-trick as Salisbury Hockey Ladies' firsts put Redland UWE to the sword.

Kerry Jackson's three goals, Lisa Lovatt's four and one apiece for Lily Jackson and Anika Drage ensured the ladies secured a 9-0 win over the students.

The drubbing got underway within ten minutes, Lovatt converting her first of four goals.

The second goal followed quickly with Jackson finding the top corner to give the Lower Bemerton a 2-0 advantage at half time.

Both teams fought hard in the second half with Redlands threatening the defence a couple of times but were unable to get past goalkeeper Fran Woodcock who made some fantastic clearances as Salisbury went on to net a further seven goals.

Impressive play from young Izzy Viant and Miranda MacTaggart in midfield, allowed Kerry Jackson to convert two more, three for Lovatt and one each for Drage and Lily Jackson.

Salisbury play their final match away to City of Bath after the Easter break where they look to seal third place in West Club's Women's Premier Division 2A.
