Scott Wood’s header saw Hemel Hempstead Rovers overcome Tring Athletic ‘A’ 3-2 in an entertaining West Herts League Premier Division game.

Asher Alleyn gave Hemel an early lead after just five minutes when he ran onto Daniel Perry’s through ball and slotted under the goalkeeper.

Tom Read almost doubled the lead shortly after but his powerful drive just cleared the crossbar.

However, Rhys Stonebank was able to add Hemel’s second just before the break, finishing off a good team move with a thumping finish from 12 yards.

Tring replied almost immediately following the break as Richard Priestly halved the deficit, and they were soon level thanks to a wonderful 30-yard drive from Adam Priestly that left the goalkeeper with no chance.

Both sides had chances to win the game, but it was Hemel who snatched the winner as Wood got his head to a corner and powered home the goal that moves his side back to the top of the table.

After notching a hat-trick last week, Drew Duggan continued his excellent scoring form for Potten End as they beat Kings Sports 2-1 in their West Herts FA Senior Cup Pool A match.

Duggan gave his side the lead after 20 minutes when he headed home a cross from the right-hand side, but Kings battled for an equaliser and after the referee spotted a handball in the box, Reece Canning stepped up to dispatch the penalty.

Kings began to tire towards the end and as they did, Potten took advantage as Duggan fired home another cross to seal the win.

Hunton Bridge got back to winning ways and stay top of Division One after a 4-1 win over Hemel Hempstead Rovers Reserves.

Brett Whitehead and Jack Sale had Global in front but Evergreen stormed to take maximum points back thanks to Taylor Pope and a magnificent hat-trick from Aidan Stockwell.
