The Tring men’s first team were on hot form despite the cold temperatures as they ran out 7-2 winners over Thame at the weekend.

Tring passed the ball around well and kept long periods of possession, although they initially lacked the killer instinct in front of goal.

Just after half-time, Thame sneaked a second breakaway goal and were gaining confidence, but the door was well and truly slammed in a seven-minute spell that yielded four Tring goals.

It was a solid performance all round, but the next two fixtures – against the two leading teams in the league – will be more of a test for Tring.

Away at Eastcote, the men’s 2s couldn’t hit the heights of the previous week’s 12-0 win as they were held to a 1-1 draw.

A slightly scrappy game was evenly fought, with Eastcote taking the lead with their first attack of the game, before Tring fought back to equalise just before half-time with a goal from Greg Roach.

Chances came and went in the second half for both teams, but no-one could find the killer touch, with the game ending all square.

Elsewhere, the Tring ladies’ 1s put in a another top performance against local rivals Berkhamsted I, dominating possession from the start to the final whistle but being held to a 2-2 draw.

Clever passing during the game resulted in a well worked goal, before the second came off a short corner – something the Tring ladies had recently been fine tuning.

However, two breakaway goals from Berko meant that the spoils were shared.

Tring ladies are now following in the men’s footsteps – they have gone five games on the trot undefeated, and are steadily making their way back up the league table.

Meanwhile, Tring ladies’ 2s drew their away game 1-1 against Royston.

The team worked well together despite the freezing conditions as Polly Hall made her senior team debut and Lottie Woodall scored her second goal of the season.

The team’s next game is away against Harpenden, 1.30pm start.
