London Colney were knocked out of the Challenge Trophy after a 3-1 extra time defeat against Berkhamsted in their quarter-final tie.

The Blueboys were facing the same side which dumped them out of the Premier Division Cup earlier in the week on penalties.

London Colney fell behind to a controversial opener when Connor Calcutt fired home despite appearing to be offside. Goalkeeper Charlie May protested against the goal and was dismissed for dissent.

His place went to midfielder Spencer Clarke-Mardell and he produced an excellent performance with several notable saves.

London Colney levelled the match two minutes into the second half when Matt Newman netted a fine solo effort.

The tie went to extra time and Berkhamsted regained the lead when James Shaw's deflected effort went into the net.

Berko caught them out on the break as they sealed the win with a goal from Adiel Mannion.

The Blueboys are in action tomorrow when they host Hatfield in the South Midlands Premier Division before entertaining Hillingdon on Saturday.
