FC UNITED returned to winning ways in style with a superb 6-0 home victory over Bridlington Town.

Rory Patterson hit four goals to help the Rebels, who visit Rossendale United today, register their first points after losing their opening two Unibond League First Division North fixtures.

The star striker, who had been a doubt after limping off in the midweek defeat against Garthforth Town, opened the scoring on 14 minutes, before adding a second eight minutes later.

But Patterson had to wait until 70 minutes for his hat-trick strike and wrapped up the contest when he headed a fourth 10 minutes later.

Substitute Anthony Hargeaves made it five and Matty Taylor completed the scoring from the penalty spot.
