Leo Gordon-Brown’s man-of-the-match display saw the Under-10s West outplay St Albans Rangers but Ahmed Berchill’s goal was cancelled out in a 1-1 draw.
Harvesters Under-11s South came away with a 9-2 victory over Everett Rovers with man-of-the-match George Davies coming out of goal in the second half to score a hat-trick and add to Harry Ruane’s own three-goal haul plus strikes from Charlie Habbick, Lewis Murray and Zak Bensissi.
The Under-12s North won 10-1 in the second round of the Challenge Cup with five goals from Finbar King, two from Amir Berchill and one apiece from George O’ Connor, Harry Sprowson and William Brothwood knocking out Belmont United Whitesox.

The Under-13s North’s Oscar James was man-of-the-match in their win over Hadley Wood and Wingate Herons. Curtis Finch scored both goals for Harvesters.
James Minott’s man-of-the-match performance inspired the Under-16s South to a turnaround 4-3 win over Finchley North. Sam Nevin (2), Matthew Early and James Banathy supplied the goals.
Two goals each from Ellen Beary and Sabrina Monastero plus one from Ellie Bergin ensured the Under-18s Girls came away with a 5-0 success over Welwyn Pegasus.
