Kings Langley hit Wodson Park for six as Weiss sparkles


Kings Langley replicated the 6-0 scoreline from their previous match with a scintillating display against a Wodson Park side that battled to the final whistle.

Kings got off to the perfect start when Tom Carter’s astute pass fed a Mitchell Weiss run to the corner flag and his precision centre gave Connor Toomey a close range header.

The scorer doubled his tally on the half hour mark when his free-kick clipped the end of the wall to wrong-foot James Sturgeon, and then Weiss repeated his earlier move - calmly picking out Billy Stevens for the former U18 player to register his first for the club at senior level.

The provider finally got just reward for his efforts on the stroke of half-time when Sam Izzard’s powerful shot was palmed away by Sturgeon, leaving the predatory Weiss with work to do before finding the net.

The second half opened in similar fashion with a Lee Burgoyne free-kick being deftly flicked in via the post by Billy Stevens and an unconventional back-heel by the irrepressible Weiss giving Nick Jackson a close range sixth.

Wodson Park had also had their moments and the story may have been different if Ant Ladyman had not produced a flying save to tip over a Sam Muir thunderbolt in the 10th minute.

The home striker was also just off target as the second half opened, but although Park contested everything in a crowded midfield, they lacked a cutting edge.

Kings put together some periods of inter-passing in a bid to master a rock hard pitch that was entertaining but produced no further goals.

The night, however, belonged to Weiss (pictured), who seized his chance to stake his claim for more than a bit part in the final run-in.
