With just one league this year – the Premier Division, there were six second-half goals as The Rosey saw off Hatfield Mosquito 4-2.

Tim Jolly, via a superb free-kick, Shaun White, Daniel Armstrong and Mitchell Harrison all got on the scoresheet for The Rosey.

Mosquito fought back in the last 15 minutes with goals from Ollie Collinson and Cameron Oakaby-Wright but it was too little, too late.

Elsewhere, Shamrock Rovers squeezed past Shamrock Rovers Reserves 2-1.

Rhys Hopkins netted for Shamrock Reserves but Leigh Nymm and Olly Rouse notched the vital goals for Rovers.

Welwyn Campus also pulled off a 2-1 victory on the league’s opening weekend, triumphing over The Cock FC.

The Cock went 1-0 up following Harley Saunders’ strike, however, they couldn’t hold off Welwyn and goals from Joe Drummy and Tom Watts ensured victory.

Ennis Daly’s four-goal haul saw Bradmore Rovers hammer Hatfield Cricket Club 8-0.

Daly’s quartet was added to by Daryl Archer’s double and solo efforts from Mark Freestone and James Upson.

Macron WHSFL are pleased to announce the attendance of accident and emergency medical support services throughout matches at KGV.
