On a fairly serene evening at Mile End Stadium, Tower Hamlets took on Eton Manor in another Essex Senior League match, which also marked Tower Hamlets’ final home game of the season.

This match got underway with a bang as just a few minutes in, Eton Manor were awarded a free-kick about 25 yards from goal following a foul on forward Josh Sykes. Midfielder Daniel Crowie stepped up to take it and blasted a pile-driver right into the top-right corner to give Eton the lead, past home ‘keeper Carl Duggas-During who didn’t really have a chance of saving it. It was a great effort by Crowie.

So, with Manor having that early lead, they could have went further ahead though Sykes and  winger Harry Prince sent strikes wide soon after. Hamlets gradually had chances of their own, though forwards Roche Bailey and Germaine Agymeng couldn’t quite hit the target.

Eight minutes before the break, forward Josh Sykes found himself one-on-one with ‘keeper Duggas-During though hit goal-bound strike just swerved enough to hit the right-side post and go harmlessly wide.

Half-Time: Tower Hamlets 0 – 1  Eton Manor

The second half was a somewhat quieter affair and though Manor were tested in defence, the home side couldn’t quite find that ‘killer instinct’ to put chances away. Arguably their best chance of the second half was a good free-kick from full-back Ruben Nasco which hit the bar, with visiting ‘keeper Aston Grimes stranded, with 12 minutes left.

Manor looked decent at times going forward as well, with eight minutes of normal time remaining, Kadeem Brightly, playing as a forward after the break, hit a good strike on goal which Duggas-During parried onto the bar for a corner.

Manor won’t mind about the manner of how they won the game, and I believe they ground out the win, though they deserve credit for that. They remain 16th in the table; they are three points shy of Wadham Lodge in 15th, Eton having two matches to play. Tower Hamlets remain 20th, three points clear of Burnham in 21st, with Hamlets having two matches left, away to Enfield 1893 (Saturday 15th Apr) and West Essex (Sat 22nd April).

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.
