The game was played on the second pitch at Colney Heath's ground with the main pitch only partly marked at present and no goals in place.
It was an entertaining game as rain poured down during most of the first half with it brightening up a little in the second period. 1893, now managed by Gordon Boateng, looked a good side taking a 0-3 lead into the half time break. It really was a game of two halves as Colney Heath fielded a completely different side (and kit...red and white stripes in the first and bright orange in the second) in the second half with the visitors also making a raft of changes as both managers took a chance to run the rule over a number of players.
Colney brought the game back to 2-3, one through a penalty kick from a handball in the box, only for 1893 to score a late goal, which was nearly cleared off the line by a home defender, to make it 2-4.
