Herts Senior Centenary Trophy
Danny Morgan fired Bishop’s Stortford Swifts into the 3rd Round of the Herts Senior Centenary Trophy with his hat-trick helping his team come away from Hatfield Town with a 3-1 win.
Harold Wood Athletic are up to second after a 2-0 away win at Leigh Ramblers with Reiss Kingley providing both goals.
Either Division One leaders Snaresbrook had a bad day at the office, or else FC Hamlets had a particularly good one as they went on to show the leaders no respect and beat them 5-1. Charlie Heatly, Ishmael Carter, Farron Smith, Ashley King and Tyler Sanago-Ishmael provided the FC Hamlets goals, with Tyriquee Solomon notching the Snaresbrook consolation. Snaresbrook remain top despite this result. Late goals from Ronnie Hobbrough and Sam Lock saw Shenfield AFC overcome Ongar Town 2-1. The hosts scored via Sean Green and held that lead until the 91st minute when Shenfield equalised and then three minutes later took all the spoils and so end the day up in third. Rayleigh Town Res. and Frenford Res. shared a point after their game ended in a 2-2 draw.

A David Major hat-trick helped Toby beat Ryan, with Des Gallen the other Toby marksman in the 4-0 victory. Harold Wood Athletic Res. meanwhile came away from Newham United with all the points after Perry Robinson, Paul Virdi and Chris Pope bagged goals in the 3-2 win.
Westhamians bagged all the points thanks to Max Holt whose all-important goal saw the Division Three leaders beat Hutton Res. 1-0. Leigh Town are second after a 6-2 win over White Ensign Res, who scored their goals via Adam Skinner and Efrem Nuguse. Laindon Orient are third after a 9-2 victory over Basildon Town Res. Henry Ballard scored a hat-trick; Samuel Lake notched twice; Jasper Read, Tom Read, Adam Cole and Michael Bottone also put their names down on the score sheet. Roydon came from behind before taking all the spoils at Wakering Sports. The hosts were leading 2-0 due to Ryan Curtis and Aaron Marshall finding the target.
