Berkhamsted confirmed their return to form by hitting four goals away from home for the second time in a week.

Clearly buoyed by Tuesday’s morale-boosting victory over Dacorum rivals Leverstock Green, Berko proved too good for relegation-threatened Hatfield and took the lead after just 12 seconds.

From the kick-off, the ball went back to Jordon Frederick and he played it forward for the speedy Myles Stephenson to nod home.

Frankie Jowle then doubled the lead before half-time as he broke clear and chipped over the keeper’s head.

Hatfield pulled a goal back after the break but their hopes of a recovery were dashed as Berko scored two more themselves through Josh Chamberlain and Glenn Thompson.

Chamberlain had come close on a number of occasions earlier in the game, but finally scored when he struck a superb volley from a cross by Ashley Fongho.

Thompson nodded over the keeper from another right wing cross to complete the scoring and seal the points for Berko.

“It is always good to end the season winning games,” said Comrades manager Mick Vipond.

“We are already making plans for next season and we want to have a bit of a go at the league.”
