WELWYN Garden City took the derby spoils on Saturday with an emphatic 3-0 victory at home to Colney Heath.

Fabio Valenti started the ball rolling on the half hour when he sent a quickly taken free-kick some 25 yards out past Heath custodian Tom Blackman for a fine individual goal.

And only 53 seconds into the second half, Valenti made it 2-0 to the Citizens with his second of the game.

He capitalised on poor defensive play from visiting defender Mark Teasdale in the box to fire past Blackman.
