St Albans City Youth Disabled 0 St Albans Wanderers 5
WANDERERS kicked off the new season with a win at the home of league newcomers, SACYD.
After early pressure from the hosts, Wanderers gradually took charge with clever interplay, switching the ball from wing to wing and winning a series of corners, one of which was turned in by playmaker Noah Evans for a 1-0 lead.
Five minutes later, another flowing move was finished off by Richard Francis.
Ollie Gent added a third before Francis notched his second to make it 4-0 at the break.

The expected rout failed to materialise in the second half due to haphazard finishing by the visitors and resolute work by the home 'keeper. However, Francis completed his hat-trick after 65 minutes, slotting home after a strong run.
On Saturday, Wanderers entertain Welwyn Garden City 'A' at Verulamium.
