KIEREN CHARD scored four as KIDMORE END maintained their undefeated Premier Division record with a convincing 6-1 victory at ARBORFIELD.

The away side never looked like failing to build on their good start to the league season and coasted into a 3-0 lead by half-time.

Chard’s close range effort from a Matt Walker corner and his cool finish after being put through by fellow striker Michael Butcher made it 2-0 with only 10 minutes played and as good as sealed the win against an Arborfield side suffering from a depleted squad. Chard fired in a third before the break and Stuart Brown added the fourth early in the second half.

Arborfield pulled a goal back before Kidmore picked up the pace in the closing stages with Jamie Thomas and Chard scoring headers to ensure an emphatic win.

Meanwhile in Division 1 West GORING UNITED crashed to a 2-0 defeat at AFC BURGHFIELD.
