WSFL Intermediate Cup Round One
Croxley FC advanced into the second round as they completed a 3-1 win against Cassiobury Rangers.
The first 15 minutes was dominated by Rangers and they went ahead when a cross-field pass from Sam Mortimer was taken down by Frank Blande and he smashed home.
That was as good as it got for the home side however, as they conceded three soft goals during the match.
Garry Hayne was the beneficiary and he ended with a hat-trick as Croxley eased into the second stage.
WSFL Junior Cup Round One
There was a disappointing defeat for AFC Bushey Reserves as they crashed out of the tournament after a 7-1 defeat against Rickmansworth Athletic.
A brace from Jimmy Wheable was added to by singles from Steve Quarrington, Simon Lee, Shane Kitts, Nicky Thomas and Jamie Exley for Rickmansworth.
Danny Rowe found the net but it was nothing more than a consolation for Bushey.
Croxley FC Reserves made it a successful weekend for the club as they smashed North Watford 7-1.
Steve Bunting found the net twice, while Alex Tomlinson, Dan Dare, Jamie Dunlop, Jason Quilley and Nick Alibey were also on target.
Braces from Davan Desai and Michel Chistadoulou helped West Herts Reserves beat Watford Town 6-1.
Also scoring for the Stags were Jon Gandy and David McConnon, while Aaron Lowe replied for Town.
WSFL Junior Cup Round Two
Division Four outfit Sun Postal United caused a cup shock as they defeated Division Three side Shenley Wood 3-2.
A Jerome Driscoll brace and a single from Dan Parkes sealed Sun’s passage into the next round and cancelled out goals from Jamie Hazel and Nick Martin.
It was a difficult morning for Oakview but they managed to claim maximum points and a 4-3 win against Gadeside Rangers.
A Lee Armitt double and goals from Owen Deamer and Bobby Harding were eventually enough to down a spirited Gadeside side who remained in the contest throughout.
Dan Byron, Jonathan Evans and Gary Ellington all struck for Gadeside but their efforts were unrewarded.
A ruthless performance from St Josephs saw them thump Oxhey Estates 8-0.
Jack Brown and Ben Hammond shared four goals and Ben Cowan, John Lumm, Ross Shorto and Liam Sonner also struck in the comprehensive win.
An own goal helped Croxley Green Community Centre secure a 3-2 against struggling Hammer.
Ryan Denham and Pat O’Boyle were on target for Green but the game was levelled after Andy Avis and Lee Ford found the net. However, the own goal proved the difference between the two sides and sealed the win for Croxley.
A late strike from Ashley Harewood helped Bushey complete a 2-1 win against a wasteful West Herts side.
The Stags started the game strongly and deservedly took the lead when Sam Saleh raced through on goal and slotted home.
Laurence Olorunfemi then missed two great chances to double the lead and that proved pivotal as Bushey equalised on the hour and with five minutes remaining, Harewood finished well to secure the victory.
A second-half goal from Jordan Sibthorpe helped Bushey Bimecc seal a 1-0 win against Rifle Volunteer.
During the first half both sides rarely threatened but Rifle created marginally the better opportunities.
The second period continued in the same fashion but an injury to Rifle centre-back Andy Tobias opened up the game.
Bushey took advantage and Sibthorpe found the net following a rare Rifle defensive slip up.
FC Crescent got their first league win of the season in impressive fashion as they thumped Woodside FC 7-0.
Luke Pochetty scored a fine hat-trick, Tom Devereux grabbed a brace and Tyler Conner and Lee Collom also struck to round off a convincing win.
League leaders Mill End Sports claimed a 4-0 victory against Chorleywood Club with goals from Craig Horwood, Mark Brownsell, Adam Cadmore and Andy Pryor.
Table-toppers Green Dragon were in ruthless form as they trounced Victoria 7-1 thanks to braces from Luke O’Malley and Joe O’Brien and singles from Dean Shuttleworth, Martin Stevens and Dean Paratt.
Victoria’s consolation was netted by Jamie Beaumont.
Langleybury Cricket Cub posted a cricket score against Sun Postal Sports as they recorded a 15-2 win.
Matt Honey enjoyed his morningt and scored five times. There were hat-tricks for David Best, Liam Shusej and Sam Toms and a single for Mark Edgar.
Wes Moore and Andy Arnold were Sun’s scorers.
Old Fullerians continued their 100 per cent start to the season as they defeated Hertsmere (Sunday) 4-1.
Sam Berry, Craig Totten, Martin Donnelly and Steven Pich found the net and cancelled out a goal from Michael Smith.
Rickmansworth Rovers edged past Amici FC but had to work hard in their 3-1 win.
Bert Adams netted twice and a single from Sean Cabey was enough for Rovers.
The Amici goal was scored by Jude Bell.
RD FC and AFC Oddfellows had to settle for a point apiece as they played out a 1-1 draw.
Sean Bone struck for RD, while Connor Flanagan was on target for Oddfellows.
Oxhey Lions recorded a comfortable 5-0 win against Dome Bar Area with Lois Whitfield (2), Steve Howard, Ollie Brinton and Trafford Nolan on the scoresheet.
A late goal from Duncan Sands saw Railway Arms claim a point and a secure a 3-3 draw against an impressive Racing Santandome side.
Railway started the contest sluggishly and found themselves 2-0 down. A scuffed penalty from Chris Phillips reduced the deficit.
On the stroke of half-time Santandome grabbed their third goal of the contest and they looked in control of the game.
However, David Brunette pulled a goal back and player-manager Steve Bailey then assisted Sands equaliser to help his side share the points.
Carpenders Park Rangers are starting to find their form as they overcame Green Dragon Reserves 3-1 thanks to goals from George Mole (2) and a Bradley Brunt effort.
The Dragon’s reply was an own goal.
