Pride of place goes to the under-11s who went top of Division Two with a thumping 10-1 away victory against Potton Colts on Sunday.

After going a goal down, an all round outstanding performance from the Hares, with goals from all over the pitch.

Max Coffey, Oliver Butler and a brace from Louis Bard saw Hormead going in 4-1 up at half-time, then some fantastic quality football saw them extend there lead with further goals from Robbie Levy,(2), Craig Brett, James Nightingale (pen) Max Clayden and a second for Coffey.

The under-nines pulled off a couple of great games and results against a strong Baldock side.

The A team again conceded first, but showed some great character when Scott Dearman levelled with a good strike, Baldock then regained the lead, but it was after some constant pressure from Hormead that saw Dearman level again.

The last minutes saw Hormead go close another couple of times, but failed to capitalise and had to settle for a 2-2 draw.

The B team put in an excellent performance, with Rob Lankaster hitting the crossbar twice in as many minutes. Baldock then took two chances well, but again the Hares showed great character and scored twice in the final minute of the first half from Ben Coffey and Lankaster.

Despite Hormead creating the better chances, Baldock re-took the lead with a breakawy goal, but Hormead moved up a gear with a cracking strike from AJ Burton and then a neat winner at the end gave Horemead the victory.

Hormead's under-13s girls put in the performance of the season so far, against table topping Cambridge City, who up until Saturday had averaged over 10 goals a game.

Despite missing six players, Hormead were superb throughout.

They got off to a bad start by conceding two easy goals in the first five minutes, but then they knuckled down and some great closing down, excellent tackling, good passing put then in control.

Goals from Abbi Bird and Becky Turner gave Hares the chance of a shock win, but City eventually ran out 4-2 winners.

The under-10s had mixed results against a strong Potton side, with the B team putting in a good performance but losing 4-0.

The A team though took an impressive point from their game with man-of-the-match Edward Worby being impressive form throughout.

The under 13s maintained their perfect start to the season and remained top of the Crow League Division Four with an impressive 4-0 win over Stevenage Borough, while the under-12s put in an excellent performance to beat Sawbridgeworth Town 4-0 as well.

The Under 16's fielding a couple of new players, battled strongly, and were unlucky not to take all three points against Stevenage Colts, with the game finishing goalless.

n Royston Town Colts under-11s were forced to share the spoils with Thaxted Rangers, on Sunday. Colts broke the deadlock two minutes after the break when Thomas Robson found the back of the net after a superb run.

With five minutes remaining, a Thaxted striker was brought down in the box, and the resulting penalty was coolly converted.
