COLNEY Heath went goal crazy on Saturday as they put eight goals past Watford's Academy side.

Ian Cooper led the way with a hat-trick but manager Scott Lacey admitted that the result flattered the home side a little.

Speaking to the Herts Advertiser he said: "We had a good result on Saturday. The result flattered us a little bit because we only had 10 shots and eight of them went in. They were a young side and were a little bit na�ve. We had five shots in the first half and went in 5-0 up at half time, but we're getting goals from all over the pitch."

The Magpies are still struggling with players being away on holiday but Lacey says his biggest fear is keeping everybody happy once the season gets underway.

"We're still struggling with players being away on holiday but my biggest worry is keeping the squad together. I've got a lot of players of the same ability and I've tried to tell them that no one will play 50 games this year. Nobody at this level likes squad rotation but it's something we're going to have to do.

"The best thing is that they're all getting on. We had 21 lads stay behind for a pint last night after an inter-club trial and the spirit is awesome."

Next up for the Magpies is an Herts Charity Shield tie with Hoddesdon Town at the Recreation Ground next Tuesday (August 4, KO 7.45pm) and Lacey can't wait.

"We've got Hoddesdon next week and that will be the usual grudge match because there is a lot of history there.

"We're looking forward to receiving Mr O'Vell (Hoddesdon manager) again and hopefully we can get a good result.
