Tring Athletic A and Hemel Hempstead Rovers have set up an all-Dacorum clash in the Watford Peace Shield final.

Tring faced a tricky encounter at AFC Storm but came away with a 3-2 win after a brace from Jon Carey and another by Glen Sizer did the damage.

Hemel Rovers, meanwhile, delivered their best display of the season against a good Hadley A side to join Tring in the final.

Rovers led 1-0 half time lead courtesy of a fierce 25-yard strike from full-back Jamal Babb, before Paul Hanafan, Mickey Hoare (2), Tom Porter (pictured), Babb and Jordan Aikman added further goals for the Hemel side to complete a convincing 7-1 rout.

Elsewhere, there was success for another Dacorum side as Hemel Rovers A reached the final of the Holloway Trophy with a 5-2 win at Oxheys Jets B. Drew Duggan bagged a brace, with Neil Perrin, Jamie Evans and Mike Pettingell also netting.

It was not such good news for Potten End, however, as they went down 4-2 to Croxley C&H A in their semi-final clash.

In the league, Division one side Hemel Rovers Reserves were held 1-1 by Harpenden Rovers, with Karl Davidson getting the Hemel goal.

Tring Athletic B came unstuck at home to Gadebridge in a 5-2 defeat. Lewis Crowys (2), Charlie Martindale, Chris Wright and Chris Walker got goals for Gadebridge.

Gadebridge Reserves also won, beating Harpenden Rovers A 3-2 with efforts from Arnold Adzahos (2) and Ryan Campbell.
