Kings Langley enjoyed a productive first week of the season as they picked up four points from clashes against Hereford and Dunstable Town.

Saturday saw the Southern League Premier Division side entertain Hereford in what proved to be a dramatic 3-3 draw, which saw the hosts snatch a point at the death.

Facing a side many are tipping for the title on the opening day, Kings started brightly and were ahead after just three minutes through Steve Ward.

The Kings man got on the end of a well-weighted Mitchell Weiss pull-back and converted from the centre of the box to give the hosts an ideal start.

Paul Hobbs’ side held the lead until the break, before Weiss turned from provider to scorer to extend their advantage 10 minutes after the restart.

Lee Stobbs’ deep cross found Weiss at the back post and he settled himself before finishing smartly.

With time ticking by, Kings looked set to take all three points, but a disastrous 12-minute spell saw them fall behind near the death.

Jamie Molyneux got the comeback started with a 77th-minute volley before Mark Preece headed the leveller.

Kings looked to have thrown away any share of the points in the 88th minute when John Mills raced clear and scored.

The response from the Gaywood Park club was spirited and they earned their reward in the fifth minute of injury-time.

Debutant Gareth Price filled the role of hero, getting on the end of Callum Adebiyi’s header across goal to nod home.

Kings built on the morale-boosting draw on Tuesday night as they made light work of Dunstable Town in a 4-1 win.

Price was involved once again as he scored a brace after opening the scoring early on to kickstart an excellent start for Kings.

His third-minute strike was added to by Weiss in the 11th minute with a fine header and the game was all but done before the half-hour mark.

The third goal came from Kieran Turner, who capped a fine penetrating run with a low driven finish.

Dunstable made a good start to the second period and gave themselves the slightest of sniffs at a shock comeback soon after the the start of the second period.

Daniel Trif got on the end of a low cross to convert, but that was as good as it got for the hosts.

They were put out of their misery with 18 minutes to play when Price did well to claim possession in the box, beat two men and find the back of the net.

Although the season is still in its infancy, Kings will take heart from their strong start to the campaign which has them among the play-off places.

They will look to build on the results when they take on St Ives Town away from home, and could even go top of the table with a victory on the road.
