Colney Heath’s march up the Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division continued with a fine 3-0 home win over Edgware Town.

It was the fourth win for the Magpies in the last five league outings, with the only blemish being Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Stotfold, and it lifts them to 14th, but still with a number of games in hand on those around them.

Left-back Tom Carter opened the scoring early on Tuesday night with a mazy run and a right foot shot that found the top corner.

New signing from Crawley Green, Martin Collins, then announced himself to the club with a good strike for number two and another recent signing, forward Reece Cameron, dribbled along the 18-yard box and finished with aplomb to make it 3-0 a half time.

The second period was one of consolidation and the desire to keep a clean sheet, along with attacking purpose when the circumstances allowed.

Jack Woods, who was named the club’s player of the month for October, was a constant menace with his work rate, and unselfish running and assists, while the back four and keeper were solid and compact.

Next up is the visit of big-spending Welwyn Garden City on Saturday.

Colney Heath: Cunningham, Power, Carter, Robertson, Doolan, Osbourne, Hurst, Woods, Cameron, Collins, Rotimi

Subs: Lawton, Dudrenec, Dimmock, Sharp, Byron

Goals: Carter 4, Collins 35, Cameron 39

Attendance: 79
