Last weekend the Blues defeated opposition around the county and beyond – capped by a resounding 7-0 victory over Spalding by the Men’s first XI on Saturday. They then went on to beat Cambridge University 2-0 on Sunday for a 6-point weekend and fifth spot in Premier B!
The Men’s 2s won by the only goal of the game at Harpenden and top Div 2S by two points. The Men’s 3s are just two points behind the Div 4SW league leaders after a tough 3-3 draw with the Men’s 4s, who were very keen to avenge the 13-0 drubbing back in September. The 4s sit in eighth spot now.
Unfortunately, the struggling Men’s 5s were not able to claim any points from a trip to league-leaders Stevenage, but put up a good show to hold the score to just 2-3. The Men’s 6s hosted a veteran side from Southgate (including 5 players over 70!) and were able to wipe away September’s 0-8 defeat with a solid 4-1 performance; including a hat-trick from young Harry Macdonald. The 6s are now undefeated since the start of November and jump up two more places in the league to go 7th in Div 8SW. That November defeat came from the Men’s 7s, who occupy second spot in Div 8SW after a 1-1 draw with league-leaders Welwyn.
The Ladies’ first XI battled local rivals Letchworth, but were defeated 2-3 on this occasion. The Ladies 2s were level with Welwyn before Saturday’s game, but a 3-2 win puts them ahead and into third spot in the Premier Division. In Division One the Ladies’ 3s are now closing on the leaders after beating Berkhamsted 4-1. The Ladies 4s defeated Letchworth 4-2 and are well clear in 4th place in Division Two. The Ladies’ 5s, like the 3s, took three points from a game with Berkhamsted needing just a single goal to win. They are now clear of relegation in Division Three by 7 points.
Finally, the Ladies’ 6s journeyed to Luton and enjoyed a 1-0 victory to go into third spot in Division Five on goal difference.
