On a warm Bank Holiday afternoon, Barking took on high-flying Hullbridge Sports at Mayesbrook Park in an Essex Senior League encounter.

Hullbridge got out of the blocks just that bit faster, creating a couple of opportunities, the best of which saw ‘Bridge forward Jimmy Cox see his curling effort saved by Barking ‘keeper Michael Green.

However, Hullbridge did make the breakthrough soon after, ‘Bridge midfielder Harry Skinner nodding in a corner to give the visitors the lead. Barking didn’t look quite as assured on-the-ball as their opponents in the aftermath of that goal, though were soon level through forward James Peagram’s first of the afternoon, coolly slotting past visiting ‘keeper James Pellin from a long pass.

Peagram wasn’t done there, far from it. He had two further efforts denied by Pellin as Hullbridge slipped back more to their own half, finding it difficult to retain possession as the first period wore on.

Skinner once again was picked out from a Hullbridge corner though this time, he headed over the bar. Barking soon made the visitors pay for that miss, as Peagram got his brace shortly before half-time.

Half-Time:  Barking 2 – 1 Hullbridge Sports

The second half started with good running from both sides, as Hullbridge looked to get back on terms & still looked decent on the counter-attack. It was the home side though that extended their lead through that man again Peagram, who popped up where it matters once again, bundling the ball home to put Barking 3-1 up and claim a deserved hat-trick.

Peagram still wasn’t finished though as only five minutes later he got his & Barking’s fourth goal, his best of the lot, blasting a great strike past Pellin at his near post. Credit Hullbridge though, they rallied with two efforts that went wide before captain Dean Wallace’s low drive beat ‘keeper Green to make it 4-2.

Barking held on through spirited, if a tad shaky defending at times to claim all three points in this competitive & entertaining match between two good sides this afternoon.

I'm a Mental Health survivor (been surviving for years) & campaigner. I also like Music & Sport. This blog is centred on all things Non-League Football, mainly Match Reports of matches I've seen (mainly Essex Senior League (ESL) but also other Leagues) though it also houses the regular round-up's of the ESL action plus the Essex Olympian League divisions regularly. It also has the odd post about the scary world that we're all in, talking from a Mental Health perspective. Thank you for reading.
