Hello and welcome to my round-up of the curtailed Essex Olympian League programme that took place on Saturday 14th December, thanks to the weather (the matches with ‘P-P’ in them denote that they were postponed. Thank you for reading.

Saturday 14 December

Premier Division

In the only surviving top-tier tie, Sungate came away from Beckton with a 4 – 2 victory over struggling Canning Town. The result means that the ‘Gate have a four-point lead at the summit, with Catholic Utd and Leigh Ramblers their nearest challengers in second and third respectively. Buckhurst Hill sit fourth, six points adrift of the leaders though have five matches in hand on them to catch up the points deficit.

Only one match survived in Senior One as well and it saw a rare blemish on Chingford Athletic’s season ‘scorecard’.

Chingford still lead the standings by seven points though nearest rivals Old Chelmsfordians have three matches in hand to leapfrog them.

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.
