Wet weather is the winner

A total of six games fell victim to the wet weather in the Pitching In Southern League Division One Central.

Of those games that did take place, Ware are back in the play-off places after Alex Warman’s goal on the quarter-hour mark with enough to see them beat Waltham Abbey. It was also a game of three red cards - one for the home side and two for the visitors.

Cirencester Town and AFC Dunstable remain in touch with the leading pack as they played out a 2-2 draw. Felix Miles wasted little time in giving the hosts the lead by Kyle Brooks was able to level things up before the quarter-hour mark. The second period saw Reegan Messenger deliver a second goal for Cirencester only for Arnold Matshazi to restore parity late on.

The day’s other game saw Hertford Town run out 3-1 victors over bottom of the table Kempston Rovers. Ben Herd led by example as he opened the scoring on 34 minutes and soon afterwards Ryan Palomeque Bernal doubled their advantage.

The visitors refused to let their heads drop and they were rewarded when Arel Amu pulled one back just before the break, however, there was to be no comeback as Sudayisi Sendege sealed the win for his side late on.
