RUTHLESS league leaders London Colney steamrolled Amersham Town as they tightened their grip on top spot.

The Magpies travelled to Hertfordshire more in hope than expectation with Colney having not lost at home since the opening day of the season.

The table-toppers had also scored three or more goals in 12 league games this season and eased their way to three home points on Saturday.

A hat-trick from Jimmy Warner and brace from Matt Newman sealed the win to keep Amersham a point from safety.
