Magpies stun league leaders
Colney Heath recovered from a midweek cup defeat to Cockfosters with a superb and well deserved win against table toppers Ampthill Town at the Recreation Ground.
Despite it being an even first half in terms of possession, the Magpies looked in control and constantly kept the Town keeper on his toes as they pressed for the opening goal.
Ampthill were threatening at set pieces but Ricky Perks and his back four were alert to restrict the amount of crosses into the box and cleared and danger.
The opening, and ultimately winning goal, came after 55 minutes as the ball fell to Martin Standen whose left footed shot settled into the bottom corner.
Ampthill bombarded the area for the last 10 minutes and they fought to find an equaliser but the Magpies defence and midfield held firm and could and should have finished the game off as Parkinson found himself one-on-one with the keeper twice but was foiled on both occasions.
