WITH the magic of the FA Cup third round in the air around the country, it was fitting that a number of Dacorum’s Arlon Printers League sides were also in knock-out competition action this weekend.

And there was plenty of high-scoring cup drama on show throughout the various competitions.

In the West Herts Junior Cup, Potten End’s Dale Jenkins become the day’s top marksman as he scored all four goals in his side’s 4-2 victory at Langleybury.

Elsewhere, both SWR Doors and Hemel Rovers moved through to the next round of the Watford Peace Shield.

Doors secured a 3-2 win against AFC Storm with goals from Aaron Lewis, Tom Smith and Glen Armson, while Rovers saw off Hadley 4-1 thanks to Jamal Babb (2) Tom Porter and Jordan Aikman.

Tring Athletic B, however, were beaten 2-1 in the Rous Cup by Croxley.

In the league, Kings Sports picked up three points as Cheki Hokoza got both goals in a 2-0 win at Harpenden Rovers.

Hemel Sharpshooters also picked up a good win as they saw off Sarratt A 3-2 with goals from Adam Hitchings, Mark Reynolds and Warren Davies.

Elsewhere, Hemel Rovers A shared a 2-2 draw with Oxhey Wanderers Reserves.
