Two goals in injury time gave Colney Heath a 3-1 win over Wembley and a vital three points – boosting their hopes of staying in the Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division.

Joseph Longworth scored two minutes into added time at the end of the game to make it 2-1 and Charncey Dash added a third two minutes later to complete the success.

Early Jamie Eames had cancelled out Taiwo Edyn’s opener for the visitors.

The victory keeps the Magpies in 20th position, level on points with Harefield United below them who picked up a shock 3-1 win at London Colney.

Our photographer Kevin Lines was in attendance to catch the action.
