 Broxbourne Borough 1

Kings Langley continued their impressive start to the season with victory over Broxbourne Borough at Gaywood Park

With both sides boasting a 100 per cent record going into the game, Kings got off to the better start and were 2-0 up inside 20 minutes.

First, Ritchie Hanlon latched on to a Sam Warrell through-ball to score, before Connor Toomey’s low cross eluded everybody but the predatory Jack Johnson.

Borough hit straight back, though, as Sean Bonnett-Johnson scored from a tight angle.

The game was being played at a relentless pace and, although it flowed from end to end, it was Kings who were more relieved to hear the half time whistle after Hussein Isa had hit a post.

The opening ten minutes of the second half saw the home side slow the pace of the game a little and, when Johnson timed his run perfectly, was felled by Borough keeper Allan Buck and saw the ball roll into the net, the referee pointed to the spot.

The resulting penalty by Gary Connolly was saved by Buck, but Connolly atoned two minutes later as his through-ball saw Adam Hallissey’s shot spin off Buck before Warrell put in the rebound.

Borough’s frustration boiled over when Oujdi chopped down Connolly and was sent off as Kings secured the win.
