For the second week running the result of the day had to be Blueharts men’s sixth team with star of the week hat-trick hero Sean Storey.

The lads put in a solid display to beat Bishop’s Stortford 4-0 at home gaining another revenge victory over a side that had beaten them earlier in the season.

Sean Storey ran rings around the visitors with great skills and accuracy on show to put away a treble before the half-time whistle.

Bobby Bridges got in on the act in the second half with a well-worked goal in a result which saw the men’s sixth team occupying seventh spot in Div 7SW and look likely to avoid relegation.

The men’s second team also had a good 3-0 win at home against West Herts and sit fifth in Division 2S.

The only other victory of the day came from the ladies fourths away to Welwyn, who secured three points with a 3-1 scoreline and remain second in Div 4 behind St Neots.

Despite a 2-2 draw against Broxbourne, the men’s 3s sit proudly at the top of Div 4SW by six points and are almost certain of promotion.

The goals came from Tom Wallis getting round his man to slip the ball to Hammond in the D, who found space and slotted home on his reverse for the his second of the game.

Tom Russell got man of the match for his solid performance in defence on his debut for the thirds.

Draws also came in from the ladies’ seconds and thirds against Bishop’s Stortford and Saffron Walden.

The ladies first team faced Saffron Walden at home with the visitors pressing hard right from the start putting Blueharts under pressure.

An end-to-end game saw both sides have chances from short corners and open play with player of the match Jess Marsh making some cracking saves to keep the scoreline 0-0 at half-time.

The first team took the lead when Ella Blackmore showed great composure to skilfully work her way around the defence and keeper. She was rewarded with a big cheer from the on-looking supporters and team mates.

Blueharts held onto their narrow lead until Saffron Walden took advantage on the last short corner of the game scoring to equalise.

The firsts remain one from the top in Div 2SW with three teams breathing down their necks.

The ladies second team travelled to Bishop Stortford with Zoe Smith scoring their goal settling for a 1-1 draw.

They are now fourth in the Premier division of the 5 Counties league.
