Division Three

The majority of the Watford Sunday League fixtures were again postponed, but Sun Sports moved to within one more win of the title after a 9-1 victory over RBL Croxley who suffered a second successive heavy defeat following a 10-1 loss the previous week.

Sports’ run has been very impressive as they have yet to suffer a league defeat this season, with their only dropped points coming in their first game in September in a 3-3 draw against Woodside Wanderers. The win over RBL was their 14th in a row.

Despite the eventual result, Croxley had the better of the early exchanges, before Sun went ahead when a counter-attack ended when a strike from Daniel Flanagan went through the keeper’s hands.

Within a minute though, RBL were back on terms thanks to a curled effort from outside the area by Aaron Hirst.

Sun went back in front on the stroke of half-time when Ben Dunton finished off another counter-attack, and this changed the whole complexion of the game. Helped by a change in formation, Sports went on to score another seven times in the second 45 minutes.

Flanagan made it three with a shot from outside the box, which looked like being the goal of the game until Dion Belle stepped up to fire home a free kick from more than 30 yards out to make it 4-1.

Jake Twomey netted the fifth with his first goal for the club, a left-footed strike from inside the box. Daniel Moss and Bilal Akram finished the scoring by bagging a brace each.

AFC Leavesden moved above opponents North Watford and into fourth place in the table with a 4-0 win.
