MOTORMEN chairman Alan Bartlam described the first half of last night's emphatic victory in Leicestershire as 'the best 45 minutes of non-league football I've ever seen' as he witnessed his side record their biggest league win of the season.
He said: 'It was the Pancake Day Massacre. In all my years of watching Vauxhall,I'veneverseen a display so sensational or a home side left so bewildered.'
The visitors took the lead just eight minutes in as James Olsen put Karl O'Donnell through and the young striker lobbed Hinckley goalkeeper Tommy Whittle from 25 yards out.
Three minutes later, debutant Steve McNulty made a dream start as the centre-back headed home a right-wing corner kick from Robbie Lawton.
The Motormen were awarded a free-kick in a central position just outside the area on 28 minutes when O'Donnell was brought down.
Olsen made it three with a left-footed free-kick which he curled into the left-hand corner.
Just before half-time, Vauxhall skipper Lawton tapped in a fourth for the easiest goal he'll ever score after Anthony Wright had broken loose of the Hinckley defence.
