Whitwell Village were beaten 6-5 by Redbourn. Ben Moulding scored the pick of the goals in this game.

Bedwell Rangers went down 3-0 against London Colney and Magnum were beaten 4-1 by Colney Heath.

AFC Santos won 4-0 against Bedwell Rangers Res.

It was not until the second half that they opened the scoring and it was within 30 seconds of the restart, Matt Arlick shooting home from a tight angle.

Two minutes later, Chris Burniston headed home from a corner and it was not long before Nuno Canteiro scored a stunning 25-yard volley.
