LONDON turned on the power in the second half to blow Armagh away at the Athletic Grounds.

Eight points behind at one stage, and 1-9 to 1-4 down at the break, London looked to be in dire trouble, but their rugged spirit, economical use of possession and polished finishing dragged them back.

They fired over six unanswered points after the break, Martin Finn leading the way with three, before goals from Seamus Richardson and Finn sealed it.
