A WATERLOOGED goalmouth as Sun Postal’s ground saw this match switched to London Colney’s Cotlandswick home at short notice and the Blueboys made home advantage count with a good win.

The Blueboys made the early running with Frankie Jowle, Russell Gallagher and Dave Parkinson all causing the opposition defence nervous moments.

Colney took the lead 29 minutes in when Gallagher’s cross was diverted into his own net by Sun Postal’s Chris McIntyre.

Stand-in goalkeeper Ricky Perks had a reasonably quiet afternoon with Mark Paradise and Shaun Murphy provided good protection in front of him.

Perks had to be alert to keep out Ben Cowen’s shot with Murphy on hand to clear Luke Lloyd’s follow-up shot off the line early in the second half.

The Blueboys doubled their lead in the 55th minute when Parkinson was bought down in the area and Sam Mitchell made no mistake from the penalty spot.

Colney wrapped up all three points with a third goal in the 67th minute courtesy of a fantastic finish from Parkinson.

Mitchell laid Jowle’s pass into the path of Parkinson who turned on a six-pence and drove the ball into the roof of the net.

Colney: Perks; Wilkinson, McCafferty, Paradise, Murphy (Stevens), Dickie, Jowle, Shaw, Mitchell (Fitzgerald), Parkinson, Gallagher. Sub not used: Townsend.
