Richard Woodrow fired a hat-trick as Lowestoft crushed Swaffham 5-0 at Crown Meadow on Saturday.

The home side took an early lead when Woodrow fired in from the penalty spot after a Swaffham player had handled in the area.

It was 2-0 on 17 minutes as Reece Hunn's perfect cross was nodded home by Gary McGee and Hunn was again the provider for the third, on 35 minutes, Woodrow providing the finish.

The former Norwich City academy player completed his treble six minutes before the break when his low free-kick from the left found the net.
