Arlesey Town’s impressive start in the SSML Premier continued with a 2-1 home victory over Colney Heath on Saturday.
They began well and were in front with ten minutes gone. Ash Fuller put in a great corner and Tom Guiney headed back across the goal for Lorrell Smith to head in.
A heavy tackle on Fuller was waved away before, ten minutes later, Arlesey won a succession of corners. The Blues implemented their well-rehearsed routine and this time Hatch headed back across goal for Aaron Gooch to head home the second.
Arlesey were now in control; Hatch found Alex O’Brien who hit a good long shot that was well stopped by May, then the same player beat two defenders and hit a shot that deflected onto the bar.
Colney Heath put the Blues under pressure early in the second period and Harvey Scott beat the defence to a cross in to head home and make it 2-1.
There’s a tough test for Arlesey on Saturday when they welcome Tring.
