IT was a tough weekend of away fixtures for Hares under-eights sides, with both teams having to rely on their strikers to salvage the points against strong Letchworth opposition.

The Oranges took the lead thanks to in-form forward Harry Jarman's fine individual effort. Jarman's strike turned out to be the only game of the match, and Hormead did well to protect their slender lead.

Defender Jack Congrave and keeper Benji Wrigley shone in defence and helped ensure the game went Hormead's way.

In their game, the Blacks flew out of the blocks early on and pressured Letchworth into conceding an own goal within seconds of the kick-off.
