Colney Heath’s upturn in fortunes since Ryan Thompson took the helm continued with a 3-1 home win over Stotfold.

Former London Colney man Sam Doolan scored on his debut, Luke Dolan got the second and James Ewington completed the win.

All of this happened in the second half after Stotfold had returned to the dressing rooms with a 1-0 half-time lead.

Heath may have had the better of the first half stats wise but Stotfold hit the Magpies on the counter attack, Mark Ellis finishing with aplomb just after the half hour mark.

A few wise words from the gaffer seemed to energise the Magpies and the equaliser came on 47 minutes.
