The wet weather that decimated the non-league fixtures on Saturday remained to play havoc with those in the Herts Ad Sunday League - with 16 games falling by the wayside.

Borehamwood Rovers though paid little attention to the less-than-ideal conditions as they romped to an 8-0 win over Wheathampstead'89 in round two of the Herts Ad Knockout Cup.

He hit a hat-trick while Jack Skinner claimed two in the victory, Ashley Rini, Nathan Slinger and Aidan Thacker getting the others.
