LONDON Colney collected all three points following a good 3-0 win at New Bradwell St Peter on Tuesday evening.

Sam Mitchell went close early on for the Blueboys before New Bradwell had a spell on concerted pressure. Colney’s defence dealt magnificently with the pressure and kept their hosts out and it was the visitors who broke the deadlock.

Mitchell was the architect slipping the ball to Danny Fitzgerald who ran in and stroked the ball home with 28 minutes on the clock.

David Parkinson had an effort turned round the post while Colney ‘keeper Winston Seidu had to punch clear a powerful header from Ben Hill.

Midway through the second half Greg Shaw doubled Colney’s lead with a long range effort. The midfielder received the ball from a Dan McCafferty throw in before curling a beautiful effort inside the far post.

The Blueboys added the gloss with seven minutes remaining when Parkinson raced down the left wing and drilled in a low ball for Mitchell to turn home the third goal.
