Nuneaton Town 3 Dartford 1
Saturday 26th April 2014 (Skrill Premier)
Match report courtesy of Nuneaton News;
A hat-trick from Louis Moult ensured the season ended on a high note for Nuneaton Town.
The game was only seven minutes old when the Boro came close to breaking the deadlock.
Without a goal in the whole of April, Nuneaton did not look shot-shy, as Phil Trainer saw his scruffy looking volley cannon back of the bar after it looped over Alan Julian in the Dartford goal.
Dartford were not getting a look in at this stage and they were hanging on.
Football is a funny old game, though, and it was the against the run of play that the visitors took the lead on 17 minutes.
A corner from Ben Swallow evaded everyone in the box, the ball falling at the feet of Rory McAuley who stabbed it home from two yards out.
The goal was out of the blue and it did nothing to affect the pattern of play as the Boro continued to dominate.
Adam Walker and Wes York flashed efforts just wide and over respectively as the home side continued to create chances a plenty.
It was only a matter of time until they drew level and they did just that in the 27th minute.
Jordan Cranston was the creator after he jinxed his way to the byline and pulled the ball back to Louis Moult.
The Boro striker had the easy task of side footing an effort past Julian from five yards out, to draw the Boro level.
If that goal was easy for Moult his second on 37 minutes was nothing short of quality.
A through ball found the former Stoke man in acres of space in the penalty area, Moult brought the ball out of the sky and side footed it past Julian in one fluid movement.
The second half carried on where the first ended as the Boro were enjoying their final afternoon of Skrill Premier football this season.
Moult really should have tied up his hat-trick in the 62nd minute but after being delightfully fed through by Danny Sleath he could only blast his effort straight at Julian in the Dartford goal.
One minute later and Moult did make it a treble, once again Cranston was the provider, and once again Moult finished the cutback with ease from close range.
