Berkhamsted were knocked out of the Challenge Trophy in an entertaining clash with Aylesbury at Broadwater.

Stacey Field was the difference between the sides, netting a hat-trick to take the Ducks through.

Field opened the scoring in the third minute, but the impressive Jordon Frederick restored parity following a flowing 17th-minute move.

Aylesbury keeper Jack Silitoe saved from a free-kick by Frankie Jowle, before the game saw a flurry of goals at the start of the second half.

First, Field put the Ducks back in front from the penalty spot, before Berko levelled things up again when Jamie Gavin bundled home.

It did not take long for Aylesbury to regain their lead, though, as Field pounced for his hat-trick to send the Ducks through the next round.

Elsewhere, Tring Athletic recorded a much-needed league win as they thrashed Hatfield Town 6-0.

Vinnie Iannone (2), Stewart King (2), Sam Addae and Matt Jarvis got the goals.
