Premier Division

North Watford, the only new side in this season’s top flight, got off to a dream start with a 3-0 away victory over Chorleywood Club.

All the goals came in the second half, the first coming through perseverance from Isa Rotimi who chased down a long ball and the keeper’s clearance rebounded off a North Watford player and into the net.

The second soon followed when a long ball over the top saw Corum Chase slot home.

Karl Penny rounded off the scoring with a close-range strike into the top corner.

St Josephs enjoyed a 4-1 away win over Evergreen.

The home side found themselves three down in the first half, although they pulled a goal back just before the break thanks to penalty converted by Olly Cripps.

Although it was better second-half performance from Evergreen, the visitors completed the win with a fourth goal.

Anton Collins scored a brace for St Josephs with Alex Ward and Paulo Deritis also finding the net.

Everett Rovers Reed are the early leaders with four points from their opening two games after edging out FC Unicorn 4-3.

Reece Cameron struck a hat-trick with Nick Kerley also on target. Jack Bishop netted a double for Unicorn, with Callum O'Connor scoring their other goal.

Division One

Bushey Rangers are the only side in the division with two wins from two games after a 4-2 win over Abbots Langley Club.

They took the lead after Tom Perman broke down the left wing and his cross was converted by Jordan Toomey at the far post.

Rangers soon went 2-0 up when a Jake Davison corner was headed in by Max Lacey.

Abbots pulled one back early in the second half through Lucas Halligan only for Mark O'Connor to restore his side’s two-goal advantage as he found the bottom right corner.

Abbots brought themselves back into the game when Halligan converted a penalty for his second of the game, however Perman made sure of the three points when he ran onto a Toomey through ball and slotted past the keeper.

The other Bushey club, Bushey Eagles, bounced from their opening day defeat with a 4-2 win of their own against Langleybury CC.

Marcus Rivers scored twice with Serge Erkarslan and Dan Bourne the other scorers. Oliver Illot and Luke Hancock were the scorers for Langleybury.

Chess United, playing their first game in the division, got off to a winning start with a 1-0 away win over Ricky, who are bottom of the table after two straight defeats.

The decisive goal came from a corner when a Matt Hargreaves shot deflected into the path of Cameron Murray, who drilled a low shot into the corner from the centre of the box.

Chess had a goal disallowed in the second half and while both sides also missed chances, it was Murray’s effort which proved vital for the Division One new boys.

Division Two

Hertfordshire Eagles look the side to beat this season after they overcame Watford Town 5-3, making it 12 goals scored in just the opening two games.

Eagles had to play without a recognised goalkeeper for the second game running but it didn’t seem to affect them that much.

Glenn O'Malley scored twice with Charlie Kimpton, Connor Hewitt-Coleman and Jordan Keely also on the scoresheet.

Chris Blunden, newly signed from Premier Division Oakview, replied for Town along with Ryan Emmanuel and Marcus Fry.

Woodside and Watford Youth Sports shared the points after a 3-3 draw, this coming just a week after Woodside won the first game between the two sides 3-0.

Indeed, it looked it like Sports would take all three points before a late penalty denied them the win.

Drew Snailham, Luke Dolan and Joe Fox scored the Woodside goals, with Jake Millman, Zak McNicholas and Harry Foley netting for the visitors.

Sparta Phoenix are off and running after a 5-0 win over Abbots Wanderers, who conceded five for the second week running.

Floyd Thompson scored a hat-trick with Sam Groves and Josh Bulley also on target.

Forza Watford are in second place, also with two wins from two games, this time a 3-2 victory over Dunnings Bar.

Tom Harris scored both Dunnings goals with Bladen Trigg, Peter Rock and Lewis Jacob on target for Forza.

Division Three

King George and Watford Youth Sports Old Boys both have two wins from two games.

George beat Southern Cross 3-1, Costa Evangelides scored twice supported by a goal from Harry Donohoe. Gary Wicks notched the Cross reply.

Old Boys convincingly overcame Batchworth 4-0.

They took the lead when Dan Farrell broke down the left wing and set up Louie Muncie, who hit the ball first time with a 25-yard volley into the corner of the net.

A second followed when a cross from the right into the middle of the penalty area saw Muncie out-jump the defence and head home from around eight yards out.

In the second half a corner kick created a scramble with Alfie Crane smashing home from close range.

And in the final five minutes a free-kick on the edge of the box was spilled by the keeper to Muncie, who scored from a yard out to complete his hat-trick.

Rio Rovers gained their first league win, just edging a seven-goal second-half thriller against Frances George.

A goalless first half gave no clue to what was to follow after the break.

It was Frances George who took the lead through Brett Beaumont, however their advantage did not last long as Amil Khan slotted home an equaliser before Aaron Crawford put Rio in front, cutting in from the right and placing a shot over the keeper's head.

Frances George then scored twice in quick succession to retake the lead thanks to goals from Ollie Gorman and Gary Wallace only for Rio to equalise once more through Lewis Phillips.

They then sealed the comeback in the final two minutes when, from a Michael White corner, Reece Davies was at the back post to tap home the winner.

Bricket Wood Acorns have their first win on the board following a 6-2 win victory Inter.

Harrison Fisher scored a hat-rick supported by a brace from Alex Micheal and one from James Adams. Gabriele Casagrande and James Oldham replied for Inter.
