THERE was a feast of goals for Baldock as their season kicked off in style with seven first-half goals.

They were 1-0 up in the first minute when Matt Judges found the net after some good work down the wing by Daniel Nicholson.

Wymondley equalised two minutes later before the lively Judges made it two for Baldock direct from a corner.

With 10 first half goals, the second half was always going to be far more sedate, although the hosts did try to make a game of things with an early strike.

However, Baldock kept the momentum up when Alex Close found the target with a curling drive and sent his side to the top of the table.
