Harpenden Town slipped to a 3-1 reverse at home to Sun Postal Sports who took a ninth minute lead through Ben Poulton.

Jamie Arthur extended Sun Postal’s lead just after the interval before Matt Sutton netted for Harpenden. Poulton grabbed his second goal 17 minutes from time to seal the visitors’ victory.

London Colney took local bragging rights from their derby encounter with Welwyn Garden City thanks to a 3-0 win.

Dave Parkinson put the Blueboys on their way in the first half before late goals from Danny Fitzgerald and Sam Mitchell, from the penalty spot, gave Dave Townsend’s troops a comfortable win.
