Spartan South Midlands League Division One

HATFIELD Town drew 1-1 against London Colney in their first home fixture of the season.

The result sees Town remain unbeaten, with two draws, as they adjust to life in Division One of the SSMFL.

However manager Trevor Lloyd feels his side could and should have won had they taken their chances.

"I am gutted we didn't get the win as we created so many chances and were very creative throughout," said the former club captain.

"The performance was there, so I can't knock the players, we just didn't put our chances away.

"To be honest it feels like a loss in a way, and even their manager told me after the game that he couldn't believe his boys had come away with a point."

Town, who are playing their home games at WGC's Herns Lane this season, took the lead in the very first minute.

A cross from exciting prospect Jason Beck was swept home by Rhys Lawrence.

Lloyd's men continued to dominate the game from then on, with Martin Standen his usual creative self in the middle.

But the visitors clawed themselves back in the game in the 29th minute, when Sam Mitchell poked past home custodian Sam Lacey and that's how it stayed.

Lloyd added: "We really went for it towards the end, playing three up top; Matt Standen came on and had a good chance but it just wasn't to be.

"We need to be more clinical but that will come. There's plenty of positives to take forward."

On Sunday Town travel to Brimsdown Rovers in the FA Cup extra preliminary round.
