Tring Athletic B, meanwhile, slipped up at home to JC United in a 5-3 defeat despite goals from Ashley O’Brien and Phil Monaghan, and an own-goal.

Ged Butler scored two goals for the Gadebridge Reserves, but he was matched by Bovingdon’s Harry Woods who also bagged a brace in their 2-2 draw.

In knock-out action, West Herts Senior Cup holders Hemel Rovers moved into the next round after winning 4-2 at home against Tring Athletic A.

Olly Buckley smashed home from 12 yards but Iain Reid levelled things up for the visitors.

Two well-taken penalties by Rovers’ Ray Wood then put his side well on top, and Nick Jackson added a fourth before Reid added a second for himself and for his team.

Tring had goalkeeper Martin Travers to thank for keeping his team in contention with some excellent saves.

Elsewhere, Potten End saw their Webster Cup hopes ended at the first hurdle when they went down 4-1 at London Colney Blues. Rob Hopkins netted the consolation.
