Division One

Brookside recovered from a poor run of form in their past three games which has seen them concede 27 goals to beat Cassiobury Revolution 10-4.

Darren O’Brien gave Cassiobury the lead but straight from the restart Brookside drew level through Marc Horn. It was then a disaster for Revolution, who were playing without a recognised goalkeeper, as they conceded five times through a brace from Jack White and single goals from James Martin, Paul Wise and Lee Elliman.

Cassiobury fought back, scoring three times early in the second half through a Rob Dilkes double and one from Ady Thomason. But all that hard work was undone at the other end as Brookside completed the win thanks to Horn, who completed his hat-trick with two goals, and was supported by Martin's second of the game and one from Jordan Cocomazzi.

Brookside remain in second place, six points behind Hertfordshire Lions after they defeated Woodlands United 2-0 thanks to first-half goals from Carl Biggs and Louis McNamara.

Dynamo Croxley are up into third place after they saw off WD Athletic 5-1.

Alex Halifax gave WD an early lead but Aaron Bright equalised and Sean Tovee then gave Croxley the upper hand. WD were then reduced to ten men and the home side added two more goals before the break through Scott Stevenson and a penalty from Dev Patel.

Jeremy Comber completed the scoring in the second half.

Inter are in fifth place after they beat Colne Valley Reserves 2-0 with a goal in each half from Alex Farlie.

Radlett Road finally have a first league victory after they came back from 3-2 down to overcome bottom-placed Roundbush 7-3.

Eddie Cawdron scored twice to give Bush the lead in the first half but Road equalised twice through Steven Harper before Russell Lavalette put Bush ahead for a third time just before half-time.

Radlett's superior fitness told in the second half though, as they scored five times thanks to doubles from Benjamin Damaine and Reece Brown with the other goal coming from Sarosh Afroz.

Premier Division

Reed Rangers took advantage of Tudor Arms' morning off to regain the leadership of the top flight after 10-1 win over bottom-placed Kings Langley.

The score was only 3-1 with 20 minutes remaining but Langley suffered a dreadful late collapse.

Tom Carter scored the Langley goal from the penalty spot. Reed's efforts came from Dominic David’s five, taking his tally to the season so far to 33, George Hobson scored a brace and the other goals were netted by Lucas Gibbons, Dean Hammill and David Baxter.

Reigning champions Headstone Athletic also scored ten as they beat Old Danes Athletic 10-4.

Anthony Ball, Dan Page and Tom Malley all hit hat-tricks with Marc Gibbs the other man on target for the victors.

Old Danes' replies came from Joshua Oliver’s double, Chris White and Liam Janusz.

Evergreen Olympians got the better of Headstone Lions 3-1.

Steven Pickering gave Evergreen the lead after 20 minutes but Jason Choat equalised before half-time.

In the second half, Olympians gained all three points thanks to goals from new signing Dan Campbell and Daniel Burke.

Ken Simmons Memorial Cup Quarter-Final

Bovingdon are through to the semi-finals after they edged out Division One FC Revolution 5-3.

The lower division outfit made their top-flight opponents fight all the way through a double from Matt McShane and Lee Woodward's sole strike.

The Bovingdon goals were scored by Tom Gray and Adam Putman, who both hit doubles, with player-manager Chris Truman netting the other.
