Turner Trophies Challenge Cup Round Two

Rifle Volunteer ended up convincing 4-0 winners against Met Police (Bushey) in the second round of the Challenge Cup.

The visitors' task was enhanced when Met were reduced to ten men after only ten minutes when their centre-back was sent off for a very physical challenge, followed by dissent towards the referee.

This gave Rifle extra time and space on the ball and they played some expansive football against the plucky ten men, finally making the breakthrough with a Myles Hall header.

The second period saw the Rifle take control and they doubled their lead with a nice breakaway finish from Sam Ryder.

Although the home side tried their best to resist, Volunteer pushed through the gears and man-of-the-match Hall added to his first-half finish with a brace to complete his hat-trick.

Current Premier Division leaders Bushey had a very comfortable 6-0 win over Division Four Racing Santandome through Ashley Harewood (3), Jamie Brown (2) and Joe Charles.

Ben Hammond led the way with a treble, Liam Sonner netted twice and Kevin McKenna was also on the scoresheet.

FC Crescent, who are bottom of the Premier, finally had something to smile about after they defeated Division Three's The Pavillion 8-3.

Luke Beardsworth. Liam Hanley and Jamie Moran each scored twice, with Dean Ayres and Tom Devereaux also registering. Two-goal Sam Seymour and Craig Bartlett notched for Pavillion.

Rickmansworth Rovers won away at Hammer Reserves by the odd goal in three thanks to Adam Seabrook (2) and Marvin Andrews.

Gadeside Rangers beat Croxley Green Community Centre 3-0 to continue their upward turn in form.

Adam Hills, Tommy Mitchell and an own goal secured the points.

Division One

CK Guild slipped to their fifth league defeat of the season against high-flying Chorlywood Club 2-1.

Guild conceded in the first minute, with Harry Webb firing home. But as the game wore on, the visitors found their feet and went close as Garry Hockey and Karem El-Janfali just missed the target.

Aaron Farrell pulled CK level with a mazy run and a neat finish, and the game looked set to end all-square until Michael East popped up to snatch all three points in the closing stages.

West Herts had nine players on the scoresheet as they ran riot at Green Dragon to run out 22-1 winners.

Roger Lake led the onslaught with five, Sam Saleh (5) and Danial Strachinaru (3) also netted hat-tricks, while Davan Desai (2), Ian Gurney, Matt Jones, Jason Whyte, Kayon Howells and Michael Christodoulou joined in their side's free-scoring fun.
