Wheathampstead 3 Portland Arms 4
INJURY-HIT Wheathampstead suffered a second successive cup defeat losing 4-3 to Portland Arms with a below par performance in the Apsley Junior Cup.
Wheathampstead started very brightly in poor conditions and deservedly took the lead when Angus Raeside coolly picked his spot and curled the ball into the corner before Portland equalised after poor defending.

Early in the second half, Arms equalised and soon added another. David Bailey equalised for Wanderers, rising high to meet an excellent free-kick from Frankie Buckler.
