Marc Bonito led the rout with four goals, Harrison Harrison also scored a hat-trick, Louis Soaper added a double and Jonathan James Shapero completed the scoring.

Carpenders Park Rangers were also among the goals, scoring six times without reply against Railway Arms.

Among Carpenders’ scorers were Will Wilson with a double, and one each from Andy Avis, Abbas Khan and Adrian Cofei.

Division Three side North Watford were too good for Central Watford, recording a 5-1 win.

The usual scorers were in their element, with Shoaib Ali hitting a hat-trick and a double from Mansoor Ali. Mohammed Diouf netted for Central Watford.

Sun Postal United, without a point in Division Three, turned the tables on Dome Bar Area, who are sixth in the same division, with a 4-2 victory.

Mitchell Carter, with a pair, and one each from Daniel Parks and Chris Malski were enough to knock out Dome, who responded through Daniel Wright and Rhys Fitzpatrick.

Garston United may be the lowest placed team in the league but they had something to cheer after winning 2-0 at Racing Santandome thanks to goals from Russel Cooper and Mathew Carpenter.

Premier Division

Oxhey Estates just got the better of AFC Spartians in a nine-goal battle in the lower regions of the top flight, winning 5-4.

Carl Wigg’s brace and singles from Luke Beardsworth, Paul Wyard and Paul Turner ultimately clinched the points after Tom Horton and Darren Lancaster had shared Spartians’ four goals between them.

Goals from Adam Hills and Tommy Mitchell were enough for Gadeside Rangers to defeat West Herts 2-0.

Division One

Third-placed Green Dragon had a surprise when they lost at home 3-1 to a Hammer side who are gradually returning to form.

Two goals from Tom Dettmar and one from Lui Potiuk were too much for the Dragons, for whom Luke O’Malley replied.

Rickmansworth Rovers moved up to second place thanks to a comfortable second-half 3-0 away win at Cassiobury Rangers as Bert Adams, Dean Mallett and Sean Cabey found the net.

Both teams squandered chances in an even opening period, but Cassiobury slowly began to look the stronger without being able to make the breakthrough before the interval.

More of the same followed after the break until a sloppy defensive mistake allowed Rickmansworth to take the lead.

Their second followed from a goalmouth scramble, but Cassiobury’s cause was not helped as goalkeeper Joe Hitchins suffered an injury at the same time and had to leave the field.

The outcome might have been different had Rangers not suffered this misfortune and also made the most of their opportunities, but Rovers went on to make sure of the points with a third goal.

Old Fullerians are fourth, having played more games than any other team in the division, and they had few problems in winning 5-1 at basement side Croxley FC.

Steve Pich scored twice and Joe Rylett, Perry Knight and Charlie Hailey were also on target for the victors, with Craig Garrett netting Croxley’s consolation.

The spoils were shared between two sides at the wrong end of the table as Chorleywood Club and Nascot Arms drew 1-1 – Charlie Munro (Chorleywood) and Jamie Greison the scorers.

Division Two

Leaders Amici FC had an easy 5-0 away victory at Met Police (Bushey) thanks to a Chris Coleman hat-trick and Craig Gorrie brace.

Oxhey Lions remain on the leaders’ tails after Aaron O’Neill and an own goal earned a 2-0 win at fourth-placed Langleybury Cricket Club.

Rifle Volunteer Reserves moved up a place to third after their 4-1 home success at the expense of Rickmansworth Athletic, but remain some way behind the top two.

Hugh Trayte, Adam Doe, Myles Hall and Sam Ryder got the goals for Rifle and Jordan Allen for Rickmansworth.

Middle of the table sides RD FC and West Herts Reserves shared eight goals in an exciting contest.

Jake Levy (2), Flavio Demagio and Joe Ellis were on target for RD, but the Stags secured a 4-4 draw through a fine Roger Lake treble and Chris Blunden.

Goals from Lewis Cole and Tom Seamons enabled sixth-placed Colne Valley to beat basement side Croxley FC Reserves 2-0.

Division Three

The second and third-placed sides overtook the leaders following the two games that were played in the division.

West Watford went top with a fine 5-3 win over previous pace-setters AFC Oddfellows after an entertaining match that had everything.

Bilal Akram led the way for West Watford with a brace and Ajmel Ahmed, Fehzaan Ahmed and Hameed Khan were also on target. Connor Flanagan, Nick Simmons and Gary Hennicke responded for AFC.

Oddfellows slipped to third after Oxhey Rangers enjoyed a 7-0 victory at home to Woodlands United. Charlie Fordham scored a fine hat-trick and there were singles from James Hall, Liam Coles, Jordan Aston-Woods and Ryan Walsh.

Division Four

The only fixture in the division saw two mid-table sides meet and Evergreen Reserves comfortably emerged with the points after defeating Green Dragon Reserves 4-1.
