Centre-half Michael Bleach was the unlikely hero for Marshalswick Rovers as they picked up a 4-1 win over CHL in the Herts Advertiser Sunday League Division Four.

With three regular strikers unavailable, Bleach was pressed into action as an emergancy centre-forward and he delivered the goods – scoring all four goals.

Brookmans Park A defeated Harp Colts Res 2-1. Darren Singleton had put Colts ahead but goals from Pete Williamson and James Jankawski won it for Park.

A brace from David Bailey meant Pinewood also won 2-1, this time at AFC Mymms.

In the Herts Advertiser Knockout Cup Skew Bridge Reserves were edged out in a breathless clash, with premiership rivals NBOB eventually winning 5-3.

Skew went two up through Phil Lythgoe and William Bates but NBOB came back strongly to lead 3-2.

Bates levelled things up again but once Dave Parkinson got his second, there was no way back for Skew.
