The cold weather put paid to much of the weekend action in the Hitchin Sunday League but thankfully some games did take place across the four divisions.

In the Premier Division, top billing must go to AEK Letchworth who continue on a fairytale story in their first season in the top flight.

They are now just two points off the top after they beat title rivals Kcinsatop 4-0 thanks to goals from Micky Smith (three) and Liam Errington.

PJ Hitchin and Red Star ICL will resume rivalries on another day.

Baldock Engine warmed up for their cup semi-final with Angels Reply this week with a comfortable 4-1 win against Wanderers in Division One.

In Division Two, all three fixtures fell foul of the weather but one game did take place in Division Three as Shillington Sunday moved clear in second after a 4-1 home success against Wanderers Res, Ryan Humphrey (three) and Chris Slough on target for the Shills.
