The latest action from Watford's Olympian League

Herts Sunday Intermediate Cup Round Four

Tudor Arms are through to the last 16 of the County Cup after producing a stunning performance to defeat Leather Bottle 6-1.

Arms showed their intent from the start and scored twice in the first 15 minutes thanks to goals from James Roope and Ben Collins. The Leverstock Green-based side had no answer to Tudor’s passing and movement and by half-time the game was effectively over thanks to further goals from Danny Robertson and a second from Roope.

A further two goals were added to the Tudor tally through Jack Robertson and Tom Inch while Bootle's consolation came via a long-range free-kick late on.

Tudor now travel to St Margaretsbury United on January 12 for a place in the quarter-finals.

Headstone Athletic are also through after they overcame HTS Bar Absolute FC Reserves 4-2.

Athletic once again had to come from behind in a County tie after they conceded an early goal. But they had turned it around by the break thanks to goals from Joby MacDonald and a long-range effort from Anthony Ball.

Harry Healey scored twice the second period, either side of a second HTS scrambled effort.

Headstone’s reward for this victory is an away trip to Comets Sports Club who defeated Evergreen Olympians 5-2.

A makeshift Evergreen side led 2-1 at the half-way mark with Martin Tebbs putting the home side ahead, a Comet equaliser followed before Lee Rackham restored the Evergreen lead.

Comets scored an equaliser soon after the restart and their opponents' failure to take some good chances was punished on the break.

Reed Rangers suffered a 3-2 defeat to Watford Sunday League Division Two side Green Dragon.

It was a case of what might have been for Rangers who looked on course for the win following two more goals from Dominic David, taking his tally for the season to an impressive 35.

The game turned when Dragon pulled a goal back on the stroke of half-time. A second followed early in the second half and the winner was netted soon after.

Ken Simmons Memorial Cup Quarter-Finals

Premier Division side Old Danes Athletic had to do it the hard way after they came back from 2-0 down to beat first division Meriden Ballers 5-3.

Premier Division Kings Langley had a much easier morning against first division opposition as they beat Watford Labour Club 4-0.

The goals came from Martin Sansacvio with a double, Tom Carter and Rob Henney.

The all-Division One tie between Woodlands United and Colne Valley Reserves saw a 2-0 home win with the goals coming in each half from Craig Hepworth and Steve Cook.

Roundbush have a first point of the season after a 3-3 draw against WD Athletic.

Athletic had a two goal lead by half-time following goals from Pat Turner and Tom Bryon. Bush pulled one back through Chris Thorn before Turner scored a second for Athletic. However, Bush got the draw thanks to two late efforts from Rob Hales.

At the other end of the table, Hertfordshire Lions kept their fine winning form going with a ninth straight league victory after they edged out a spirited Cassiobury Revolution by the odd goal in seven.
