Six points from two games has Colney Heath well positioned to make a run at the top teams in the SSML Premier Division.

Last Tuesday, against Berkhamsted, manager Wes Awad handed debuts to Elliot Bailey, on loan from St Albans City, and substitute Harvey Scott-Morris.

The Magpies took the lead when Jay Welch bundled the ball home at the far post from an Kevin Ashwood free kick in the first half.

The game went from end to end as Berkhamsted probed for an equaliser while Colney Heath wanted to ease the pressure by scoring again. The respite came, however, when Ed Canham was sent off for a second booking, allowing Heath to see out a 1-0 win.

Saturday brought London Tigers to the Recreation Ground and they were sent away with nothing in atrocious conditions as Parkinson notched the winner in the first half.

The hail stones, wind and driving rain forced the players off for a few minutes in the second half but the Magpies returned to see the game out and keep the important three points.

• There is a race night on Saturday, February 1 at the football club to raise funds for St Albans Primary Schools Representative squad’s tour to Jersey at Easter.
