Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division action across the district was in short supply this week as the weather conditions hit hard with London Colney the only team to get a game in.

That came on Tuesday night when they hosted Cheshunt in the quarter-final of the Herts Senior Cup.

And the division's basement club put in a stirring effort against the Isthmian Premier Division side, only losing 2-0 courtesy of a Reece Beckles-Richards brace.

Colney Heath and Harpenden Town were both due to be in league action, at home to Biggleswade United and Dunstable Town respectively.

Both matches were called off following a downpour two hours before kick-off.

The Magpies did have the satisfaction of seeing title rivals Tring Athletic lose 3-2 to Leighton Town to remain five points adrift.

The challengers meet in a huge contest at the Recreation Ground on Saturday.

All fixtures were wiped out on Saturday.
