Hemel Rovers have a league and cup double to celebrate – despite facing the tough task of playing 14 games in 28 days to conclude their season.

Double-headers are now in place and Rovers travelled to Hadley, recording a 1-1 draw before securing a 4-1 victory in the second game.

The West Herts Senior Cup was on offer three days later, and a lone strike from Mylie Cash won them the trophy.

A visit to Croxley proved no problem as Rovers won 4-1, before two victories at Abbots Langley clinched the league title.

This week, the club contest the Herts Junior Cup at the County Ground in Letchworth against Hertford and District League side FC Cornerstone.

Three more league matches and the Watford Peace Shield final will end the season for Rovers by May 9.
