The first team match away at Cockfosters was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. With no game this Saturday, our next match is at home against Biggleswade FC on Saturday 24th February, 3.00pm kick off at Brickfield Lane. Our reserves do have a match this Saturday (17th February), a Herts Intermediate Cup Quarter Final away at St Margaretsbury reserves.
The first team travelled to Biggleswade United and came back on the wrong end of a 6-0 scoreline. We had a good chance to take the lead early on but Ibrahim Camara's effort didn't manage to trouble the home keeper. On a muddy playing surface, the home side took the lead after two players lost their footing and fell over, allowing David Parkinson to easily finish from close range. As we looked to be heading into half time 1-0 down we were dealt a late blow as Biggleswade doubled their lead just before the break to make it 2-0. We started the second half very strongly and applied some pressure to the Biggleswade back line, but the home side stayed solid and dealt us the killer blow as they scored their third goal to increase their lead. This looked to put the game out of sight, and we then disappointingly dropped our standards to allow Biggleswade to score a late fourth, followed by two goals in injury time, to make the final score 6-0.
Line-up: Bowman, Shirley-Clarke, White, Shulman (Milton), Wright, O'Hara, Odusoga (Buraimoh), Collins-Ugochukwa, Aggrey-Adams (Magwood), Camara, Alkiviadou

The first team hosted London Colney and shared the points following a 1-1 draw. We started well and got on top early on before taking the lead when Ivan Machado set up Ibrahim Camara to finish from close range. We looked in control of the game until we lost the ball in our own half and our visitors capitalised to make it 1-1 with a good finish from outside the box. We had a couple of good chances to get back in front but could not convert and the first half ended 1-1. The second half was more even, our best chance was a one on one for Ceykan Karagozlu that was saved by the Colney keeper. Neither team could break the deadlock in the second half and the game ended 1-1.
Line-up: Bowman, Shirley-Clarke, Davite (White), O'Hara, Lyon, Wright, Odusoga (Karagozlu), Ferguson, Machado, Camara, King (Buraimoh)
Subs not used: Milton, Anwar
The first team travelled to Hoddesdon Town and came back with all three points following a 2-0 victory. After a goalless first half we got well on top in the second half and applied a lot of pressure to the Hoddesdon back line. We took the lead after the Hoddesdon keeper was sent off for handball outside the area and skipper Paul Wright stepped up with a brilliant free kick straight into the top corner to make it 1-0. We doubled our lead when a Sam Edwards free kick was parried by the Hoddesdon replacement keeper and Sam Aggrey-Adams reacted to finish from close range. We had further chances to increase our lead but they were not taken and the score finished 2-0 to seal a deserved win from a very good team performance.
Line-up: Bowman, Shirley-Clarke, Bartam (Davite), Wright, Lyon, O’Hara, Edwards, Anwar (Odusoga), Karagozlu (Camara), Ferguson, Aggrey-Adams
