West Herts Junior Charity Cup Final @ Hemel Hempstead Town FC - KO: 8.00pm
Chesham United Generals 6-0 Hemel Hempstead Rovers 'A'
West Herts Junior Cup Final
Having lost the Division 1 Title the previous Saturday to Croxley Community Reserves, after defeat to their opponents today, Chesham United Generals were a determined team in this final against Hemel Hempstead Rovers 'A'. Within 5 minutes they had taken the lead through Rob Bailes-Collins and the pressure was relentless as goals came steadily through the half. Archie Batts, Ewan Philpott, Nico Rasura and Sam Ivory all scoring to make it 5-0 at the break and Rovers were somewhat torn apart. A strong team talk saw them try and weather the storm and Chesham could only score one more, with Rasura adding a second to his tally but the damage was already done for a convincing 6-0 Chesham win.

West Herts Senior Charity Cup - Semi Finals
The Engineer Harpenden 3-2 Croxley Community
Croxley Green 2-1 Apsley Argyle
This was a close run Semi Final, with Croxley Community scoring two counter attacking goals in the first half, from Nick Rogers and Roshan Patel, despite The Engineer Harpenden dominating possession. Engineer scored just before the break from Colin Armsby, to give themselves hope but Croxley could have scored more after the break and lived to regret their missed chances. As Engineer built the pressure and Croxley tired, a brace from Ben Warren saw them home in a tense finale, winning 3-2.
This was another close game, with the youthful Croxley Green just having too much for Apsley Argyle, coming out 2-1 winners.
