Two goalkeepers in the West Herts League must have suffered from backache at the finish of their matches for between them they picked the ball out of the net no fewer than 44 times.

The Watford Co-Op lost to Watford Orient in the Mid-week League by 23 clear goals, and Bushey United Reserves had 21 goals scored against them by Leavesden Reserves.
