HEARN HITS FOUR-TIMER AS REDS ARE SUNK BY MARINERS
ALFRETON Town fell to a 5-2 Blue Square Bet Premier Division defeat at mid-table Grimsby Town and had strikers James Ellison and Drewe Broughton both sent off towards the end of the second half.
The Reds had led 1-0 half-time lead courtesy of Paul Clayton's first goal of the season but that was smashed aside by a four-timer from ex-Red Liam Hearn who hit a hat-trick in 13 minutes between 57 and 70 minutes before adding a fourth on 86.
Alfreton man of the match Nathan Jarman got Alfreton's second on 90+1 minutes from the penalty spot but an even later header by Anthony Elding completed Grimsby's turnaround.
The attendance was 2,941 which included 175 from Alfreton.
