West Herts Senior Cup - Pool C

Caddington, who are currently top of the Premier, faced bottom team Langleybury Cricket Club in the Senior Cup and, as per many “shock” results in The FA Cup over many years, the visitors came away with a “not expected” 3-1 win!! Caddington played below their best and Langleybury took full advantage to get into poll position in Pool C. Ollie Illott (2) and Dan Johnson scored the Bury goals.
