Spartan South Midlands League
Division One - Current Table - Top Six Only
Risborough Rangers lead the early SSMFL Division One table with fourth placed Baldock Town looking good on four wins from four games currently in fourth place. Two new clubs to the division in Kensington Borough and Biggleswade FC have made excellent starts to the season along with Wodson Park and Buckingham Athletic. Risborough's only dropped points so far came somewhat surpringsly in a 2-2 draw away to Arlesey Town.
Josh Warren is the league's top scorer at present on an impressive total of 10 goals in seven starts and one substitute apperance for Broadfields United. The former Chelmsford City player also scored in their FA Vase victory at Risborough. Drew Mitton of Winslow United follows him with six in six games and Pat Daly of Langford on six in seven games.
Brimsdown FC are currently proping up the table on just one win in six games which makes Lloyd Barzey's five goals in five games for The Limers look decent.

Baldock Town should make it five out of five wins in this one but Arlesey do like to score goals hitting the back of the net ten times in their last four league and cup games - they have let in fourteen! Arlesey did hold Risborough to a 2-2 on Saturday 3rd September.
