BSFL representatives Echoes booked their place in the next round of the Herts FA Sunday Junior Cup after beaing Roving Reporters Reserves 2-1.

Chris Pearson and Brad Phillips got the goals for Echoes in the preliminary round clash, but it was not such good news for A&A Flooring as they were knocked out of the tournament in a 5-2 loss to Angel Ware.

Dave Thomas netted a brace for A&A but it was not enough to prevent his side from crashing out of the competition.

In league action, meanwhile, Jay Austin bagged a double for AFC Boars in a 4-2 win over Berko Tornadoes in the Premier Division. Lewis Cruwys and Sonny French were also on target.

Berko Athletic had Tom Kelly and Craig Anscombe to thank for a 2-1 win over Flaunden, while Joel Williams earned a 1-0 win for Comets Sports club against Doves United.
