Only five matches involving Berkhamsted Sunday Football League teams went ahead on Sunday, as the weather played havoc with fixtures once again.

After last week’s torrential rain, it was frost that put paid to this Sunday’s fixtures across Dacorum.

Comets Sports Club did manage to play their match, though, and they will be pleased they did so as they booked their place in the third round of the FA Carlsberg Sunday Cup.

Taking on Yarmouth outfit Windmill, Comets secured a 3-1 win courtesy of goals from Chris Marsh, Leo Mullett and Dan Hartley.

Elsewhere, AC Grapes progressed to the fourth round of the Herts FA Sunday Junior Cup with a 6-2 victory over Rifle Volunteer.

Jamie Evans was on top form, helping himself to five goals, and Ricky Weymouth also got his name on the scoresheet.

It was not such good news for Tring Royals, however, as they lost 6-2 to Thunderidge City in the fourth round of the Sunday Junior Cup despite a Tommy Taylor brace.

Elsewhere, a George Loosely hat-trick, along with a double from Graham Blythe, earned a 5-1 win for Flaunden over Berkhamsted Athletic in the third round of the BSFL Steve Norwood Challenge Cup.

In league action, The Old Bell Gate saw off Boxmoor Rangers Reserves 3-2 in Division Four, with Lee Goodwin getting all of the goals for the victors.

Will McLean and Lee Wood were the goal scorers for Boxmoor.

This Sunday’s fixtures throw up a number of intriguing clashes, including Herts FA Sunday Intermediate Cup fourth round action for VFC, Langleybury CC, Greenacres II and Drays Athletic.

There are also a handful of League Intermediate Cup third round matches, with Hemel Corinthians taking on Boxmoor Rangers, Kings Langley CC playing host to Comets Sports Club Reserves, and Echoes battling it out with Landrovers.
