COLNEY Heath's perfect start to the season continued with a 2-1 win over Broxbourne Borough on Tuesday evening.

The victory, together with the 1-0 win over Brimsdown Rovers on Saturday, puts the Magpies third in the Spartan South Midlands Premier Division after the first two games of the new campaign.

Heath side now face an FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round game away to Tiptree United this weekend before returning to league football with three home league matches in a row - against St Margaretsbury, Kingsbury London Tigers and Hillingdon Borough.

"Everything is going to plan," said Heath's joint manager Scott Lacey, "We couldn't have asked for a better start. We played Brimsdown on Saturday and they were a good side so we're delighted to get all three points from that game.

"Maybe we shaded the chances a little but I think we were slightly fitter towards the end of the game and that's when we dominated the match."

Jon Donoghue scored Heath's winner against Brimsdown with his first touch of the game after coming on off the bench, and Lacey joked: "That's down to a great managerial decision more than anything."

On Tuesday evening Ian Cooper and Liam Beaumont got on the scoresheet in the second period after a first half display that saw them go in 1-0 down.

"At half time we read the riot act at them and to be fair it worked and they came out second half and played well."

Lacey added: "This has been a massive start for the club. We didn't have six points until much further into the season last year so the boys are flying and we'll hope to continue this.
