Ampthill Town’s season took another blow on Tuesday when the SSML Premier Division cup holders were knocked out of the competition at the first hurdle.

Their poor home form continued with a 4-0 home defeat from Leverstock Green. The visitors scored two goals in ten minutes midway through the first half through Lew Bircham and Dave Sobers and added a third just before the break through Liam Hand.

Hand added the fourth from the penalty spot on the hour to compound Town’s misery and continue their poor SML run.

They go to Hadley on Saturday to play another side struggling for points so it is an early six pointer.
