For the second time this season Baldock Town Letchworth bounced back from a dip in form to knock out the league leaders in a Cup competition.

After two defeats on the road they played high flying London Lions, who have won eleven of their last twelve games, and the Baldock deservedly won the game after a Gareth Grant strike in the second minute.

Danny Bennett hit a corner to the edge of the box where Man of the Match Grant controlled well, before neatly despatching into the bottom corner. Further chances came and went, but Jack Farmer in the home goal, had a very quiet afternoon against the leading scorers in the league and in truth Baldock never looked like losing this one.

Saturday 15 November will go down as a red letter day for Jason Valentine, managing the team in the absence of Roy Boon. With Chipperfield, top of League Division 1 having dropped only one point, and Eagles needing a result after successive defeats found their team never stopped running and fighting every ball, and ran out 1-0 winners thanks to a magnificent goal from Jaz Genesis, who turned several Chipperfield defenders with a mazy dribble before finding the net with a crisp low shot.

Bedwell Rangers were at home against Old Parmitarians. Bedwell fielded six of their new players that had signed within the last four weeks. The game started with Bedwell taking the game to Old Pamitarians and playing some good football. Lloyd Lee and Jamie Kingston were having a lot of success down the wings but it was Craig Braine that was enjoying most of the play and was involved in most of the attacking moves that Bedwell were putting together. Bedwell Rangers, who have the worst defensive record in the league, were looking very strong with the new centre back pairing of Marc Chitenden and Craig Balazs.

For the first time this season the back four looked strong and composed and when they were not able to clear the ball, Mark Dunsworth was there to clean up. The match was goalless at half time but the deadlock was broken in the second period when Old Parmitarians took the lead.
