Tring Athletic recorded a deserved 2-1 victory over a much improved Hatfield Town side to move up to seventh in the SMML Premier Division table.

Visitors Hatfield – who have made a bright start to the campaign – took the lead in the 54th minute but Tring showed excellent character to draw level 15 minutes later through Greg Deer.

It was then left to Martin Skinner to bag the winner in the 90th minute with a bullet header to snatch the victory for his side.

The win continues Athletic’s remarkable record against Hatfield – making it 11 wins from 11 games.
