London Colney have to wait to get back on the winning trail

London Colney’s hopes for a quick response to two successive league defeats were left frostbitten after the big freeze on Tuesday night put pay to their game at home to Oxhey Jets.
It came on the back of defeats to Bedford and, more recently, Hoddesdon Town last Saturday.
It means their lead at the top of the Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division has been cut to four points by AFC Dunstable, who have a game in hand, and five to last week’s opponents, who have played two games less.
Despite having Lee Armitt available again after a long spell on the injury list, the Blueboys went down to a late goal at the Stewart Edwards Stadium.
Ricky Light’s free-kick with just three minutes to go kept Hoddesdon in the hunt for the one promotion spot.
