Recent signing Ollie Snaith, loan debutant Tom Knowles (whose arrival from League Two club Cambridge United was only completed late last night) and Peter Clark hit the goals as Saints triumphed 3-0 at Kings Langley today.

It was an emphatic victory which allowed them to leapfrog the hosts in the lower reaches of the standings and also provided a terrific exit for assistant boss Jack Cassidy, who is taking up the same post at hometown club Bedford Town.

St Neots Town twice came from behind to earn a point in their first outing of 2018 at the same level.

Matt Clements’ side drew 2-2 with Stratford at the Premier Plus Stadium thanks to equalisers from Dylan Williams in the first half and Nabil Shariff late on. The latter player also hit the woodwork.
