Hello & welcome to the latest of my occasional series, looking at the Eastern Senior League South League action, rounding-up the seven matches on Saturday 8 October, which saw three teams get important away wins.
EaSL South – Saturday 8 October
We start with a fine win for May & Baker as they won 3 – 0 at Stanway Pegasus. Kalum Bama, Abidemi Lamina & substitute Daniel Barth’s late goal secured an impressive win for Jordan Harris’ side at Stanway Sch 3G, which takes them level on points with Rosi Webb’s side. Benfleet remain in fourth after a 2 – 0 triumph at Coggeshall Utd, with Grant Frances and Taylor Lawrence the goal-getters there for Alex Salmon’s side.
Frenford also are in a good position in fifth after a superb 3 – 2 success at Basildon Town. Nick Reynolds scored twice (one from the penalty spot) for Dave Forbes’ side, with Tom Potter getting the opening strike. Rhys Fatt & Keanu Hill both netted for player-boss Marcus Bowers’ side but they drop into mid-table. Park View are in sixth after a surprise 2 – 1 victory over leaders Burnham Ramblers, with Emerson Dju & Kyron Mitchell the heroes for the hosts at New River Sports Centre. Ben Wood’s header ensured a late reply for Ramblers but their lead remains at two points because of other results.
Elsewhere, Enfield Borough got a big 5 – 1 success over Cannons Wood at Maurice Rebak Stadium. The ensemble cast of scorers were Walid Hirsi, Grisiano Kadriu, Malachi Soile, Georgi Steed & Rinidie Lokilo-Imponge as they rose to seventh spot in the table. Wood remain winless & four points adrift at the bottom. St Margaretsbury wre held 1 – 1 by Barkingside at the Recreation Ground. Ethan Daniels with the goal for Paul Holding & Marce Collington’s team. The other game saw a 3 – 3 draw between hosts Wormley Rovers and Newbury Forest. Josh Smith netted twice for Leo Connolly’s team, with Ansa Edem also on target for the visitors there.
That’s all for this edition, thanks for reading.
