Hemel Hempstead suffered a New Year’s Day defeat, despite Brooklyn Ilunga’s assist for the opening goal. The number 11 had flicked on a free-kick into a dangerous area, where his teammate was located to tap-in the first goal of the fixture.

Ronnie Sandford started for Hertford Town in their 3-1 defeat against Hadley. The young goalkeeper was beaten by a penalty at the start of the match, followed by another set-piece goal before Hadley made it three.
