Isthmian South Central: Barking 4 Hertford Town 1

Barking made it back-to-back wins over the festive period as they sealed a huge 4-1 victory over strugglers Hertford Town.

A brace from Dumebi GB-Dumaka and goals from Eddie Allsopp and Giovanni Palmer sealed the three points for the Blues despite a consolation goal from Alfie Cue at Mayesbrook Park.

The visitors got off to a dream start as Cue found the back of the net in the opening minute of the fixture to put Barking on the back foot.

It didn't last long as not even a minute later the hosts were level thanks to GB-Dumanka.
