The U9 Orient team fought back from a goal down to beat Welwyn Pegasus in the Mid-Herts Rural Merit League Purple Division Cup while the U10 Romans beat Bengeo Tigers Caspians to claim the MHRML Maroon Division Cup.

Both games were played at The Hive, home of Barnet FC, and both were close.

Romans also won by one goal, Ryan Kennedy getting the all-important strike in the 1-0 win.
