Two-goal hero Spencer Clarke-Mardel believes it was vital for Colney Heath to get the win at Long Melford in the FA Cup to continue their superb start to the season.
The 2-0 success in Suffolk was their fifth straight win since the start of the new season and even though the performance wasn't the best they have produced, it comes from a mentality honed over the years at other clubs.
He said: "Over the years when we were at London Colney we had that and some of the other boys had it when they were at Welwyn.
"It was important to keep up the momentum form our good start and to keep winning.
"We didn't play too well but as skipper I got two goals to help them out."
