The first team made the short journey to Cockfosters and came back with all three points following a hard-fought 2-1 win. The home side started brightly and could have been ahead early on but found Charlie Mann in fine form in our goal to keep the score at 0-0. Once the game settled down we got into it and caused the Cockfosters defence some problems of our own. We had a penalty appeal turned down just before the break and we went into half time goalless. We were forced into a half time substitution when the injured Tanasheh Abrahams was replaced by Nathan Munroe. Munroe made an immediate impact as within a minute of the restart he had given us a 1-0 lead to score his first goal for the club. Cockfosters drew level mid way through the second half when they were awarded a free kick out wide which was finished by ex-Hadley defender Tom Massey from inside the area. We restored our lead with about 10 minutes remaining when Massey fouled Ivan Machado inside the area and we were awarded a penalty. Machado's spot kick was saved onto the crossbar and Nathan Munroe headed home the rebound from close range to give us a 2-1 lead. We worked hard to keep our lead and see the game out to give us all three points.
Line-up: Mann, Duncan-Williams (Dramani), Flannery, Angel-Tamayo, Milton, Lyon, Gangadeen, Chrysanthou, Bowen, Machado, Abrahams (Munroe)
