Wanderers thump Barmond

North & Mid Herts Football League Premier

St Albans Wanderers 8 Barmond 0

ST ALBANS Wanderers returned to winning ways in style on Saturday, when the swept aside Stevenage-based Barmond.

Richard Francis opened the scoring after 10 minutes, drilling home from close range. Shaun Gibson waltzed through the visitors’ defence five minutes later for the second goal and player-manager Tim Attwood made it 3-0 from the penalty spot just before the break.

Francis began the second half in identical fashion to the first, firing home the fourth, before Harry Honeywood also helped himself to a brace, either side of a clinical strike from Jake Attwood.

Andy Upwood completed the scoring, curling in from just inside the penalty area.

Wanderers now travel to Hitchin for their next league game, against City Hearts.
