Premier Division

Rifle Volunteer’s revival continued with a 7-2 win over Old Fullerians as only three Watford Sunday League fixtures survived the weather.

Volunteer got off to the ideal start by taking an early lead when player-manager Gary Froy broke clear of the defence and rounded the keeper only to see his effort blocked on the line by a defender, but Chris Coleman fired home the loose ball.

A second soon followed when Elliot Wilson drifted into the area unmarked and drilled home at the near post.

Chris Killer then set up the third for Froy before, with a near carbon copy of his first, Coleman found himself on the right-hand side of the area after a rebound found its way to him and he made no mistake with his left foot.

It was five just before the half-hour mark when midfielder Gary Ellington stroked home after an unselfish assist from Froy.

Fullerians pulled a goal back just before the break when a free-kick from Daniel Woosley was fumbled by the Rifle keeper allowing Charlie Munroe to follow up and side-foot home.

Boosted by that, Fullerians started the second half better and made it 5-2 when Woosley collected the ball on the edge of the box and found the top left corner.

They had more opportunities to make further inroads into the lead before Rifle killed the game off when an inswinging corner was met by the head of Adam Doe.

In the last minute, Froy wriggled his way through a couple of defenders and found himself six yards out with a tap in, only to have his legs taken away. Coleman converted the resultant penalty to complete his hat-trick and a third successive victory as Rifle moved them into a comfortable mid-table position.

Division One

Maple Cross cut Everett Rovers’ lead at the top of the table to three points with a 2-1 win over Ardent.

Cross started the game well and got their reward when Andrew Pryor put them ahead with a strike from the edge of the box.

Ardent hit back with an equaliser before the break when Kiefer Shuttleworth fired home a half-volley from 25 yards.

Ardent will consider themselves unlikely to get a point after a good second-half performance, but it was the home side who sealed the win late on when Nathan Davis worked hard to get the ball back and set Kelsey Phillips up to score.

Division Two

Ricky AFC’s remarkable season continued as they went top of the table win a 3-2 win over The Victoria.

The new leaders, who had struggled in the early weeks of the season, now find themselves two points clear of their beaten opponents, although The Victoria and the rest of the chasing pack do have games in hand.

Dan Bourne’s two goals for Victoria took his tally for the season to 12, but it was their opponents who claimed the points thanks to Shane Kitts, Steve Quarrington and John Gybaah.
