Bovingdon's excellent start to the Herts County League season gathered further momentum as they made it five Premier Division wins out of five with a 4-1 victory over Ware Sports on Saturday.

Ware had gone into the game defending a 100 per cent start to the season of their own, but they were outgunned by the home side who scored through Connor Deadman, Andrew Ofosu, William Summerfield and Lewis Pritchard to open up a two-point cushion at the summit.

The only other club to have won every game they’ve played in the top flight so far this season are Belstone after Darren Turner and Michael Williams gave their side a fourth successive win as AFC Oaklands were downed 2-0.

Sitting in between Bovingdon and Belstone in the table after Letchworth Garden City Eagles, who beat Bushey Sports Club 3-1.

A Connor Toomey hat-trick gave Evergreen their second victory of the campaign with a 3-2 triumph at Broadfields, but efforts from Rob Smith and Matt Chapman were little more than consolations as Chipperfield Corinthians went down 6-2 at FC Lemsford.

With their senior team setting the top-flight pace, Bovingdon Reserves have also made an encouraging start to the Division One season and Saturday’s 1-0 win at Kinja Youth leaves them two points off the top of the table.

A place and a point behind in fourth are village neighbours Sarratt after they demolished Hampstead Heath Lions 9-0.

James Charlton led the rout with a hat-trick, Marcus Sawyer and Louis Smith added two more each and the victory was completed with further goals from Robbie Martin and Liam Wyatt.

Sun Sports Reserves are a place further back, also on nine points, following a 4-2 win over Weston, but Oxhey Jets Reserves were edged out 1-0 at home by Hinton.
