My News Herts Senior County League 4

Somerset County League 1

The My News Herts Senior County League swept into the second round of the FA Inter League Cup with a comprehensive 4 - 1 victory over their opponents from Somerset.

The Somerset team had won their preliminary round by six goals to nil against Exeter and District League and were expected to be tough opponents. This proved to be correct at first but the superior fitness and football of the My News side told in the end.

After only 2 minutes Troy Archer (Cuffley) scored with a brilliant header from a beautifully flighted free kick by Lewis Endicott (Standon and Puckeridge).

The game was then end to end with both sides spurning chances. On 38 minutes Somerset equalised and that's how things stood at the interval.

In the second half it was all Hertfordshire. The Herts manager, Dusty Miller made a crucial change by switching Jamie Arthur from the right to the left, and Somerset could not live with his searing runs and shooting ability.

Working together with Troy Archer they made a lethal combination and on 49 minutes Archer scored his second goal with a shot that was totally unstoppable. He nearly had his hat trick a few minutes later when another great shot smacked against the upright.

Then it was the "Jamie Arthur (Belstone FC) show" with brilliant goals in the 58th and 82nd minutes completing a great overall team performance.
