PAUL Danslow cracked in a brace but London Colney suffered heartbreak with a late, late winner for Bedford Town Reserves in the Molten Spartan South Midlands League Division One on Saturday.

The Blueboys could not have suffered a worse start to the league season as they conceded in just one minute with Paul Draycott netting for Bedford.

Colney were 2-0 down on 10 minutes as Callum Lewis struck to put the visitors in a commanding position.

London Colney powered back into the contest in the second half with the impressive Danslow netting just seven minutes in and then pulling the Blueboys level on 74 minutes.

The Danslow show looked to have salvaged a good point for Colney until the fourth minute of stoppage time when Sean Bolton snatched the victory for Bedford.

London Colney Reserves go to Park Street Village on Tuesday at Toulmin Drive and the Blueboys first team are in league action on Wednesday, September 13 in what promises to be a thriller away at local rivals Hatfield Town.

London Colney: Ladyman, Benning, McCafferty, Wilson, T. Caines, Beschizza, C. Davey, Bindley, R. Gallagher, Aimakhu. Sub used: J. Davey.
