London Colney kicked off pre-season with a 1-1 draw with Aylesbury United.
Jimmy Hill put Ryan Thompson’s Blueboys in front of their Evo-Stik Southern League Division One Central opponents after thundering James Ewington’s pull back into the net off the underside of the bar.
The win was denied late on when Billy Odcock saw Charlie May, Colney’s goalkeeper, off his line and lobbed him from inside his own half.
The Blueboys were scheduled to play St Albans City in a friendly at Cotlandswick on Thursday but the game has been cancelled.
