Edgware began life in the Combined Counties League with a convincing win at home to 'Waters'

First half goals by Mo Kahdum,, and Novell Bruce who added his brace in a second period dominated by 'The Wares'

The match started slowly, early exchanges from both sides saw neither keeper being troubled.

As 'The Wares' grew into the game the pace of Edgware's wing play from Kahdum and McGettigan was troubling 'Waters' back line.

Edgware were rewarded with a penalty on 26 minutes after Sony - Bruce had made a darting run was felled inside the box, Kahdum calmly dispatched the spot kick to give 'The Wares' the lead.

Just 4 minutes later Edgware had doubled their lead, following nice approach play, the ball was fed to Sony - Bruce who found the net, a deft finish from a acute angle.

At the interval Edgware were deservedly in front, Micheal Anguzu in the home goal was having a quiet afternoon.

The second period was one of Edgware dominance, at times playing some eye-catching football.

Edgware should have put the game to bed long before Sony - Bruce added his brace, for 3-0 with a fine finish at the far post following a free kick

A commanding victory, however with six from the next seven games away they'll face more sterner challenges in the coming weeks.
