If there was such a thing this match would definitely be last on 'Sunday League Match of The Day' as the swirling freezing cold wind didn't make it the best of conditions to play football. I think if there was a programme dedicated to the glamour and delights of Sunday League Football - How popular would it be?
I am old enough to remember Danny Baker's 'The Game' which was a wonderful look into the East London Sunday League and Hackney Marshes broadcast is 1991. (In fact it's currently available on DVD for bargain price of £2.29 - A great Christmas stocking filler?... some episodes are on youtube as well).
Who also remembers 'Fash FC' which was shown on Bravo between 2003 and 2004 which focused on the Hendon Sunday League and was based at the iconic Claremont Road.
I think there is definitely a gap in the market for a late night show called THE SUNDAY MATCH. If any clubs or teams are out there who are interested in filming behind the scenes with manager teams talks etc please contact me via twitter and we'll see what we can do.
This game was in the Third Round of the Hertfordshire Fa Sunday Intermediate Cup and pitted third place in the Herts Advertiser Sunday League Division Two against fourth place in the Terry Reed North West Essex Sunday League.
Swifts had won an incredible game in the second round against Windmill Athletic. It ended 4-4 after normal time and 7-4 after extra time. Colney Heth had narrowly won 0-1 at Southbury.
It was 0-0 after 90 minutes with little goal-mouth action to talk about. In extra time the game sprang to life with Colney Heath taking the lead in the first fifteen minutes followed a spell of real pressure by the away side who hit the woodwork and made the home keeper pull off some good saves. Heath made the game safe in the second period with another goal to make the full time score 2-0. They face Cheshunt Town (of the East Herts Corinthian League) at home in the next round.

SUNDAY LEAGUE CRAMP! AFTER THIRTY MINUTES EXTRA-TIME IT'S TO BE EXPECTED
