Their SSML Premier derby at Welwyn GC ended in a 4-1 defeat on Saturday, before they lost on penalties to Sun Sports in the Dudlay Latham Memorial Cup on Tuesday.

Only four minutes had been played when Danny Payne put WGC ahead at the weekend and Colney old boy Jon Clements added a second before the break.

Clements struck again early in the second half and George Ironton made it 4-0, before Kambo Smith netted a last-minute consolation.

The Blueboys fell behind in midweek as Ryan McMahon beat Joe Simmonds with a downward header, but Anton Johnson raced clear to level.

Darion Furlong, Festus Lori and Paolo Montella netted in the shoot-out, but Laurence Vaughan and Finley Long missed.

Colney host Biggleswade FC on Saturday (3pm) and Buckingham Athletic in the Challenge Trophy on Tuesday (7.45pm).
