St Albans Exiles 8 Letchworth III 0
THE Exiles welcomed Letchworth III to Dame Alice Owen and had to start with just 10 men after a venue mix-up involving Guy Black.
However, the tone of the match was set in the first 30 seconds of play with Simon White giving the Exiles an early lead.
Letchworth were a pretty poor side and they could not live with the passing, speed and accuracy of the Exiles.

Had it not been for the inspired Letchworth 'keeper the Exiles would have been in double figures by half time, as he made save after save from the incessant Exile attacks.
Further goals followed from penalty corners, with White scoring on each occasion.
The Exiles led 4-0 when their eleventh man, Black, arrived. However, he was not to last long, as he was banished to the sin bin for dissent towards the umpire and did not return.
The second half was played in a similar fashion with early goals at the start of the half.
White notched up his fifth of the game, but the move of the match came from an attack down the left.
White made a fine diagonal run across the goal and coolly reversed the ball, wrong-footing the defence and into the path of Jon Freedman, who tapped in. Martin Jones also found the back of the net after being fed the ball on the right side.
