Mitchell Weiss reached his century of goals for Kings Langley as they continued their fine run of form with an impressive 5-1 home victory over Farnborough.

A 1-0 win in the reverse fixture last month kick-started a sequence that has seen Steve Conroy’s side win five of their last seven games, culminating in this biggest win since promotion to the Southern Premier as they moved up to 11th in the table.

Having scored his 100th goal for the club, Weiss quickly added number 101, while at the other end of the scoring spectrum 17-year-old Louie Collier netted his first for the club before doubling his tally.

With Luke Wade-Slater unavailable, Jacob Cook returned on the right of midfield in an otherwise unchanged line-up as the match kicked off in driving rain.

Boro were the fastest out of the blocks, testing the Kings defence with a series of wing raids, but it was the home side’s own wide man, Stevie Ward, who delivered a pin-point cross for Rene Howe to coolly steer the ball home and give the hosts the lead as the half hour approached.

The home side now looked the more comfortable with the conditions, but there was another twist as a pacy raid down the right left Kings exposed and Connor Cullen beat Alex Tokarczyk from an acute angle.

Parity was short lived however, as two minutes later Ward interchanged passes with Weiss and drew the defence with his forward run for the return. Weiss had other ideas though, and unleashed a perfect 25-yard strike into the roof of the net to reach his century in style.

There was a lively start to the second half as an athletic volley from Jorell Johnson produced an equally stunning tip-over from Liam Beach, Tokarczyk was just as impressive with a block in a one-on-one and then Ward delivered a through ball of quality to Weiss, who ran on to beat the keeper and give Langley daylight.

As Kings began to dominate with a display of interpassing football that belied the conditions, Collier was introduced and looked at home straight away, so much so that he converted a Weiss cross within two minutes and when the youngster gave the management further food for thought by volleying home a Dean Hitchcock free-kick 10 minutes from time, Kings’ afternoon was complete.

Conroy’s side will be hoping to continue their fine form at home to Metropolitan Police tomorrow.
