St Albans Hockey Club’s men’s first team failed to build on their maiden win, going down 5-0 against Richmond.

Last week, the Tangerines pulled off a shock upset by beating table toppers Southgate but Richmond pushed them back down the table with a comprehensive win.

St Albans also saw Terrence Baptiste yellow carded and Matt Burton-Bowen given his marching orders.

They now sit in ninth place in the league, six points above winless Brighton and Hove.

Elsewhere in the men’s section: the 2nds beat Wimbledon 3rds 2-1; the 3rds lost 7-0 to Spencer 6ths; the 4ths drew 1-1 with Letchworth 3rds; and the 5ths beat Harpenden 4ths 3-1.
