West Herts League

SWR Doors recorded an emphatic 8-0 thrashing of Oxhey Jets A to keep alive their hopes of retaining the Premier Division trophy.

Goals by Glen Walsh (3), Joel Williams, Joe Copson, Stuart Meaney, Jeff Mensah and Jamie Hatchet did the damage.

Meanwhile, Hemel Rovers’ topsy turvy season continued as they were thrashed 5-0 at home by a very good Wellington Arms outfit.

Bovingdon grabbed a well-earned point in a 4-4 draw at Aldenham, but Gadebridge FC slipped to a narrow defeat.

Goals from Lewis Crowys and Chris Size were not enough for Gadebridge as they were beaten 3-2 at home by Harpenden Rovers Reserves .

Elsewhere, cup action saw Hemel Rovers A go down 3-2 to Oxhey Jets B in the Holloway Trophy. Luke Penhallow bagged both Rovers goals.

Potten End’s West Herts Junior Cup hopes were ended when they were dumped out of the tournament after a 7-2 home defeat to Pitstone and Ivinghoe. Dean Boswell and Dan Simpson got the consolation goals.

A 4-2 defeat to Oxhey Wanderers in the Webster Cup virtually ended any hopes of Hemel Rovers Reserves picking up any silverware this season. Dan Thorne and Dave Flack were the Rovers scorers.

A win for Tring Athletic A, meanwhile, put them through to the next round of the West Herts Senior Cup. An own goal against Kings Sports was all that was needed.
