Hadley 0 Colney Heath 1

COLNEY Heath made the short trip home from Potters Bar with all three points after Jamie Eames’ goal accounted for Hadley.

The first half was a dour affair, with Hadley creating the better chances, hitting the post in the 30th Minute and forcing Tom Blackman into a smart save two minutes later.

The second half started in a similar fashion, but burst into life in the 65th minute when Ian Cooper fed Eames who finished at the near post from eight yards out.

In the 71st minute, George Roland put over a good free kick from the right and captain Steve Barker had his header cleared off the line by the Hadley centre-back.
