Premier Division

There was only one fixture in the top flight but it proved the undoing of leaders Bushey, who crashed 4-1 at home to a reovering St Josephs for whom Ben Hammond scored twice, with Liam Sonner and Jamie Carter completing the win. Ashley Lewis replied for Bushey.

Division One

The two leading teams both had excellent home wins, with West Herts beating bottom side Green Dragon 4-0 through Roger Lake (2), Lawrence Olorunfemi and Martin Richardson.

AFC Spartians had a crushing 6-0 victory over Langleybury CC, with their top scorer Tom Horton cracking five goals and Darren Lancaster one.

A Michael East goal was enough to give Chorleywood Club the points at the expense of Old Garston Juniors.

Division Two

Hammer Reserves' upward momentum continued thanks to an impressive 7-1 victory at Dome Bar Area.

Gary Wicks hit a fine hat-trick, supplemented by goals from Marvin Andrews, Tom Board, Mark Smith and an own goal. Paul Della-Savina netted Bar's sole reply.

Jake Woolhead and Scott Devonshire netted a brace apiece, with Craig Davies completing Arms' account. Sam Parker and Matt Green were on target for Bushey.

Division Three

AFC Oddfellows maintained their outside challenge when they narrowly defeated strugglers Oxhey Estates Reserves by the odd goal in seven after a cracking contest.

Connor Flanagan scored twice and one each by Gary Lynch and Darren Curtis just saw them get maximum points. An Andy Weller double and one from Wayne Gladdy were just not enough for Oxhey.

In another battle between the bottom clubs, The Pavillion saw off Woodlands United 2-0 thanks to efforts from Martin Bartlett and Sam Seymour.

Division Four

West Watford's middle-of-the-table position was not challenged as they saw off Carpenders Park Rangers 4-0.
