Action from the match

It was another disappointing Saturday in the Premier A for Blueharts as they conjured up a draw again - this time 3-3 with Havering at home.

Despite having the lead for most of the game, Harts threw it away and were extremely lucky to score from a short corner which turned out to be the last play of the game.

Adam Wells rescued a point when he followed in well and slotted the ball past the keeper.

Jimmy Lewis and Oliver Hammond had contributed the other two goals.

Goals from Matt Smith (two) and Robbie Balsom could not stop Letchworth losing 5-3 at Southend.

Other scores: Letchworth II 2 (James Keel, Boz) Winchmore Hill and Enfield 2; Luton Vagrants 1 Letchworth III 5 (Dave Thomas two, Tom McIntyre-Brown, Ashley Brown, Ben Abbott); Letchworth IV 0 Hertford II 1; Letchworth V 1 (Gary Putnam) Rickmansworth IV 0; West Herts 7 Letchworth VI 0.

Stevenage won a seven-goal thriller against Blueharts seconds. In an enthralling encounter Stevenage started well and with 10 minutes on the clock Danny Blackburn put Ben Oliver clear on goal to calmly fire the ball home.

A minute later, it was 2-0 when the Blueharts defence gave the ball to skipper Blackburn who slammed the ball home past a stranded keeper.

It was not long before Blueharts scored a well-worked goal from Tim Price which gave Tim Dingley no chance.

Then, just on half time, Stevenage totally fell apart and Blueharts equalised with a Phil Britton shot that deflected off home defender Chris Nichols, sending Dingley the wrong way.

In the second half Blueharts started the stronger and were soon 3-2 up courtesy of Dan Drew.

Then Scott Reid won a short corner which John Mould fired home to score his maiden first XI goal and, more importantly, Stevenage's equaliser.

With nine minutes left, good team work between David Fisk, Nick Reilly and Gary Brown created an opening that put Ollie Holt one-on-one with an advancing Blueharts keeper.

Holt made no mistake as he flicked the ball into the net for the winner.

Other scores: Blueharts III 0 Stevenage II 2 (J Robinson, Scholes); Stevenage III 5 Potters Bar 0 (Blaxill hat-trick, Strickland, Mann); Royston III 3 Stevenage IV 3; Broxbourne VII 6 Stevenage V 1; Bishop's Stortford VI 7 Stevenage VI 0.

MBDA suffered another disappointing away defeat as Shefford and Sandy 3rds beat them 2-0.

Sh'andy scored in their only notable attack of the first half.

In the second half, MBDA had many short corners but their routines were easily defended.

The home team later made it 2-0 with some good movement of the ball. MBDA could not even capitalise on Sh'andy going down to 10 men due to a yellow card.
