In a division 3 league match saw the 18 West lose 11-2 away to Watford Youth Sports with Archie Hall and George Rowland scoring the two goals for the 18 West.

The man of the match went to the hard-working midfielder Matt Small whilst new signing Etienne Hayward had a good game as well.
The 16 Central were trailing 4-0 at half time away to Everett Rovers following another very inconsistent showing from the Central team but that all changed in the second half when Daniel Onochie-Williams came off the bench to take on his familiar centre forward role. As the second half progressed the 16 Central struck back with 3 goals all scored by Daniel Onochie-Williams with assists from Jonathan Hargreaves, Matt Roome and Dan Hussain but alas they just could not find that fourth goal to earn a point and so the final score was 4-3 to Everett Rovers. Having a steady game were John McVeigh, Myles Donkin and Joe Moss whilst it was Jonathan Hargreaves who won the man of the match award for his hard work down the left wing and also setting up one of the goals.
The 16 East had another tough day at the office when they lost 6-0 away to Chorleywood Vipers but they are still missing their regular keeper who is out for another 5 weeks. The new team motto as now changed to '' What doesn't kill you makes you stronger'‘.

In the second half Charlie Clark made it 2-1 after he raced clear and chipped the advancing keeper and the West created more chances, but they found the Echoes keeper in top form in that he made some fine saves.
