Lookback At Last Night's South And West Results

Pablo Haysham Scored One Of Hereford's Goals
Hereford FC continue to make a great start to the EVO-STIK League Southern's Division One South & West season, writes Pitchero's Steve Whitney.
The Midland League champions and FA Vase finalists made it four wins from four games on Tuesday night with a 3-0 success at Shortwood United.
A big away following boosted the crowd to 595 and they saw John Mills made it 1-0 to the Bulls after 18 minutes. Pablo Haysham eventually doubled the visitors lead 10 minutes after the restart and Joe Tumelty rounded off a good evening`s work with number three with four minutes to go.

Larkhall Athletic and Didcot Town both recorded their first wins of the new campaign on Tuesday.
The Larks shocked AFC Totton on their own patch by inflicting a 6-1 hammering on the Stags, with Tom Knighton netting a hat-trick and singles from Ollie Price, Ricky Hulbert and Kyle Tooze from the spot – Nick Watts` consolation coming in stoppage time.
Didcot won 4-0 at the Loop Meadow Stadium against Winchester City, with Ben Whitehead, Ryan Brooks and George Reid having the Railwaymen three-up by half-time, and Jack Powell completing the scoring nine minutes from time.
Mangotsfield United and Wimborne Town both achieved third wins from their four matches.
Mangos edged out North Leigh 1-0 at Cossham Street with an 88th minute Lewis Powell effort, while Wimborne won 2-1 at home against Taunton Town with Toby Holmes bagging a brace – Matty Wright replying.
Taunton`s neighbours Tiverton Town enjoyed a comfortable 4-0 Ladysmead win over Yate Town with goals from Nick Hurst and Jamie Price in the first half and Levin Landricombe and Tom Bath in the second.

Steve Claridge`s Salisbury FC earned a second win since coming up from the Wessex Football League as a crowd of 581 at the Ray Mac saw the Whites win 4-1 against Bishops Cleeve.
Tommy Wright scored again for Salisbury after just four minutes and then former Gosport Borough favourite Justin Bennett bagged a brace either side of a Christian Oxlade-Chamberlain effort, with Mark Magee replying for Cleeve.
Ryan Turner`s 37th minute goal earned Barnstaple Town a second win after promotion from the Western League at home against Paulton Rovers, while Wantage Town and Evesham United shared a 1-1 draw – the home side`s first point.
