Colney Heath’s reward for their extra-time victory over Flackwell Heath is a home tie in the FA Vase second round – although they may have fancied an easier opponent.

Stowmarket Town beat Harpenden Town in round one last year and Baldock Town in round two before bowing out in the fourth round with a 1-0 defeat at Biggleswade.

But the Eastern Counties League Premier Division side are flying this year, with two draws the only blemishes from their opening 11 games.

They have scored 44 in those games to, conceding just six.

However, the Magpies aren't exactly struggling themselves with a perfect seven victories from seven Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division contests.

Jon Clements, George Devine and Spencer Clarke-Mardel got the goals in the 3-2 win on Saturday.

The match at the Recreation Ground will take place on November 2 and is worth £900 in prize money to the winners, the losers pocketing £300.
