The North Herts Football League round-up

Premier Division champions St Ippolyts prevented Baldock from finishing as runners-up.

Baldock had quite a few of their reserves playing and held St Ippolyts until half-time at 2-2. In the second half it was mainly Saints pressure and it came as no surprise when they scored two more to win and keep their record of losing just one league game all season.

A hat-trick for Ryan Foster caused most of the damage and Leon Davis scored the other. Baldock's scorers in the first half were James Smith and Adam Shelley.

Bedwell Rangers won a close game at Kimpton Rovers 3-2 with James French having a starring role. He scored one and laid on two for John Johnston. A brace for Mark Harrington was not enough for Kimpton Rovers.

The solitary game in Division One saw Wilbury Wanderers have a comfortable victory over Cricketers Weston 3-0. A couple for Richard Pearson and one for Tony Leo were Wilbury's scorers.
