Written by Scott W  (Twitter:@ScottMHC14)

Hello & welcome to the round-up of this weekend’s action in the Essex Senior League here on my blog. The full fixture programme returned on September 30th, as most ESL sides were in FA Vase action last weekend. After the updated ESL table, there’s a run-down of the results from the Essex Olympian League Premier Division, Division One & Division Two. How did your side do this time around? Find out below. Enjoy.

Saturday 30th September

Barkingside  1 –  1 Sawbridgeworth Town

Venue: Cricklefield   | Attendance: 48

Barkingside came from behind late-on to hold a determined but depleted Sawbridgeworth side to a draw at Cricklefield. Debutant Billy Skinner put the hosts ahead on the half-hour. Despite increasing pressure from the hosts towards the end of the match, it did look at though Town might have held on although they missed two or three good chances themselves. It wasn’t to be though as substitute Gareth Jones slotted home well to give Michael Walther’s side a point.

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.
