London Colney turned on the style on Tuesday night to run out 7-0 winners against London Lions in the SSML Premier Division Cup.

Six second half goals against 10-man Lions at Cotlandswick saw the Blueboys inflict their biggest win of the season.

Despite dominating the first half, it took 39 minutes for Colney to open the scoring, Russell Gallagher smashing the ball into the net from the edge of the area.

Two minutes later London Lions were reduced to ten players when Ben Lambert was sent off after he picked up his second yellow card of the evening.

Four minutes into the second half it became 2-0 when Newman made a good run down the right and squared the ball across for Gallagher to score his second of the evening.

He completed his hat-trick in the 55th minute, linking up with Martin Collins before firing home before Greg Shaw made it 4-0.

Matt Newman, got in on the action for the fifth goal, coolly placing the ball past the goalkeeper after Collins put him though.
