East Men's League Premier B

Norwich 0 Harpenden 4

A GOAL after 42 seconds gave Harpenden's men the perfect start as they won 4-0 away at Norwich.

They opened the scoring in under a minute when they converted a short corner.

Slowly Norwich began to wake up and start playing and the rest of the first half was a fairly even affair. Elliot had Norwich's best chance but he decided to go it alone instead of passing to the unmarked Sibson.

Norwich continued to miss chances and had a player sent off before Harpenden scored their second with 15 minutes to go. Harps turned defence into attack very quickly and the centre forward finished off the move with a fortunate reverse stick finish. Harps were gifted their third when they took advantage of a woefully placed pass and a fourth was added with three minutes to go.

l St Albans Men suffered a narrow loss as two goals from Jimmy Lewis gave Blueharts a 2-1 win.
