The Herts Senior County League began its new season on Saturday.

It was a good start to the season for all the new teams but not for some of the older teams from Comet country.

Baldock Town Letchworth, last season's Division One champions, started their new season in the Premier League against the Aubrey Cup finalists, Bovingdon.

This was not going to be an easy game but Baldock came away with an impressive 3-0 victory with Mark Nunn opening the scoring in the 21st minute.

This was followed by goals from Gareth Grant just after the half hour mark and then by Dave Rees two minutes from time.

Codicote started with a 3-1 win over Standon and Puckeridge.
