Sunday saw 111 goals, and the welcomed & highly anticipated return of competitive football across the High Wycombe Sunday Football Combination, as the majority of teams got their season underway in the basking Buckinghamshire sunshine, on the opening day of the season.

AFC Liberal Reserves, deservedly awarded this week’s headline, seized on White Hart’s frailties and recorded a phenomenal 16-1 victory in Division One.

Hart unfortunately suffering huge availability issues last minute & deserve massive credit for finishing the game under difficult circumstances.

Among the chief goal getters for Liberal, experienced frontmen Kyran Lacey notched 4 and Martin Prosser hit a hat-trick. Other goals came from manager, Gary Deighton & Jake Braim – both scoring braces. Sims, Benning, Dixon & Adegbemi rounded off the scoring.
