Colney Heath picked up another three points with a 4-0 home win over Sawbridgeworth Town in the Spartan South Midlands Premier League on Saturday.

The Magpies took an early lead to go in 1-0 up at the break and then scored another three in the second period to cap a fine team performance.

The hosts attacked from the off and Ollie Lawford saw an effort go just over the crossbar, whilst George Sippetts had a shot tipped over by Jack Dixson, who had earlier pushed out a stinging drive from Lawford.

Colney Heath opened the scoring after 11 minutes when Lawford hit a corner kick to the far post where Sam Ejjayha raced in to send a powerful header pass Dixson.

The hosts continued to press after making the breakthrough before Sawbridgeworth created a few chances themselves.

But back came the Magpies with Harley Fonti having a fine shot pushed out for a corner which saw Dixon-Smith’s delivery find Sippetts at the near post and his effort was kept out by a fine Dixson save.

The second half was only a couple of minutes old when a Lawford corner kick fell to Ejjayha on the far side of the box and he swept the ball low past Dixson from 12 yards to make it 2-0 with his second goal.

It became 3-0 after 62 minutes when Dixon-Smith and Lawford worked a one-two between them and the latter drilled a cracking shot high into the back of the net for a wonderful finish.

Sippetts came close to adding a fourth goal but his curling effort was headed off the line by Ed Plackett and Lawford's follow-up was saved by Dixson.

The Magpies went ever closer when Sippetts won the ball on the edge of the box and looked certain to score with only Dixson to beat, but the keeper managed to get a hand to the ball and push the shot away, with Dixon-Smith's follow up deflected for a corner.

However, Jack Kimber took the kick, he saw the ball come back out to him and he created space for himself before curling a wonderful shot into the top corner to complete the scoring.
