Hello and welcome to this week’s round-up of Essex Olympian League action from Saturday 30th November. Also includes results from the Anagram Records Trophy & Essex Junior Cup action alongside the top four EOFL divisions and results from Senior Four & Five. Thanks for reading.

 

Saturday 30 November

Premier Division

Four of the five Premier Division fixtures survived the weather, and added to a very tight top of the standings at present as the top four are all separated by only goal difference.  Springfield were held 3 – 3 by Sungate with their immediate rivals Buckhurst Hill and Ratyleigh Town both in Anagram Records Trophy action this weekend. The result means Sungate rise to second, ahead of Springfield in 3rd.

Catholic Utd made a blistering comeback to draw 3 – 3 at home to improving Old Southendian at the Len Forge. Nick Henesy got a brace for OS with Ed Gould the other scorer for Connor Lane’s team, who are now unbeaten in their last five. The ‘Super Hoops’ drop to fifth but are only a point off Hill in top spot, although the latter have games in hand on the other top five sides. Basildon Town got a decent 2 – 0 at strugglers Canning Town with Brodie Horne and Keith King both netting as Bas got their third win in their last four to go sixth.

Harold Wood Athletic also won, 2 – 1 at Leigh Ramblers with Nick Reynolds and Chris Muir on target for Kris Taylor’s side, who rise to tenth after their second straight league win. Kelvedon Hatch’s match with Hutton was postponed due to weather.

Senior Division One

In the three surviving matches in Senior One, Chingford Athletic extended their lead at the summit to seven points after a 6 – 2 victory over ten-man Manford Way. Lee Lashley grabbed a treble here, with Sam Coe, Alex Gordon and Gary Murray all also on target for the Town Mead side. Olajide Yusuff and Josh Hayward struck for Manford who remain in mid-table. Elsewhere, Lakeside swept Toby aside as they won 6 – 3 against the bottom side to strengthen their hold on fifth spot and Shoebury Town got their sixth draw in nine league matches this term as they held FC Hamlets 1 – 1. George Oakley’s spot-kick accounted for the FCH goal at Cupid’s.

Anagram Records Trophy round-up

In the three Anagram Records Trophy ties involving EOFL sides, Buckhurst Hill roared into the nxt round with a 6  – 0 win over Olympian Senior One side Galleywood. Max Nicolson struck twice here, as did substitute Fenti Falola, with Nathan Sollosi and Henry Day also on target here for Mark Williams’ team. Rayleigh Town also progressed with a great 3 – 2 away-day win at Tring Corinthians AFC. George Vile, Bailey Moss and Henry Talbot all struck for Paul Higgins’ side. Shenfield AFC are out though after a narrow 1 – 0 loss at Sandridge Rovers.

 

Senior Division Two

Now into Senior Two, Epping Town edged to a 3 – 2 win over spirited strugglers Rochford Town at Stonards Hill. Jayden Hocking-Rising, Alex Paraskeva and Daniel Garfinkle all netted for Billy Cove’s side, though Rochford certainly gave them a headache as Tommy Dominguez continued his fine scoring run of late with a brace. Epping stay fourth, three points off leaders Leigh Town. Old Southendian Reserves also got a fine 3 – 0 win over high-flying Beacon Hill Rovers at Garon Park. Greg Molford, Oliver Tatton-Bennett and replacement Lewis Telling all scored for Ben Manley’s side who got their third win here in their last four games here to solidify fifth spot.

Wakering Sports got the result of the day though as they eased to a 9 – 0 home win over strugglers Ryan. Danny Pallett got a treble while there were doubles for Ben Rowe, Mohammed Sesay and Mitchell Gleeson as Sports went up to eighth.

Hello and welcome to this week’s round-up of Essex Olympian League action, covering the League action from the Premier Division to Senior Three with results from the various Cups and Senior Four & Five on the weekend of Saturday 9th November. Thanks for reading.

Premier Division

In the five matches this weekend in the Premier Division, Rayleigh Town missed a chance to extend their lead at the summit as Harold Wood Athletic returned to form with a 3 – 1 win at London Road. Bradley Foley, Max Shepherd and replacement Joe McBurney all netted for Ath who rise to 12th place. Connor Bridger struck for Rayleigh, who are now five matches without a win. Springfield took advantage of other results to rise to third after a narrow 3 – 2 win at Kelvedon Hatch. Shenfield AFC won 1 – 0 at Leigh Ramblers to rise off the bottom after Saturday’s matches.

Old Southendian defeated Bishop’s Stortford Swifts 3 – 1 at Garon Park to seal their third consecutive league win. Nick Henesy, Craig Paton and Ryan Stillwell all scored here to see them up to tenth, only three points off the Swifts in ninth. Finally, on Friday night, Hutton held Catholic Utd 1 – 1 at the Len Salmon.

 

Senior Division One

Moving into Senior One, with leaders Chingford Athletic getting three points without contesting their match with Ramsden Scotia due to Scotia being unable to field a side, attention turned to their rivals. Ongar Town battled past FC Hamlets  2 – 1 to keep the gap to third to four points. Lakeside stay third after a fine 4 – 1 win at Manford Way. Luke Quinton got another brace here, with Charlie Ashpole and Ollie Pettit also finding the net for the visitors. Manford replied through on-loan forward Olajide Yusuff though they still drop to seventh after this result.

Elsewhere, there was more entertainment in the division as Galleywood rose to fifth after a 5 – 3 win at home to Shoebury Town. The hefty cast of Jack Chatterway, Sam Donn, Tyler Tredgett and replacements Joe Russell and Craig Skipper all scored one each here in a great match for the neutral. Similarly, Rayleigh Town Res edged another thriller to win 4 – 3 at Herongate Athletic. Rodney Wilson led the way for Dan Williams & Lee Bunn’s side with a hat-trick, with James Nottage also on target. They sit sixth now, four points behind Old Chelmsfordians who smashed Snaresbrook 5 – 2 to stay fourth.

Runwell Sports also got their second win this term with a convincing 4 – 0 win at Toby. Caden Vine got two of them, with Charlie Adams and Pearce Clarke also netting here for Jason Emery’s side.

Senior Division Two

In Senior Two, the Epping Town juggernaut continues as they won 5 – 0 at May & Baker Res, which sent them top as one of three teams on 19 points. Despite having a reduced squad, a brace from stand-in striker Aaron Holloway, plus one each for Daniel Garfinkle, Alex Paraskeva and George Martin sealed a win. I get the feeling some Non-League nostalgists would have been keen to see manager Billy Cove have a cameo appearance perhaps?

Anyway, away from the nostalgia, Leigh Town also got another win in a hard-fought 1 – 0 triumph over Laindon Orient at John Burrows Recreation Ground with Rhys Mosedale scoring the only goal to see Leigh rise to second. Old Southendian Res also continued their good recent form with a 3 – 1 success at Rochford Town, with Thomas Adams, Greg Molford and Oliver Tatton-Bennett all netting for Ben Manley’s team. They rise to sixth place now, seven points off the top spot.   Also, Ryan were held 3 – 3 by Wakering Sports as the both sides’ struggles to win this term continued.

Finally in this division, AS Rawreth ended a six-match losing run as they defeated fellow strugglers Westhamians 5 – 1 in Fairlop Oak. Louis Hill struck twice with Daniel Hooper, Bradley Pike and Lewis Wynne all also on target for Shane Bird’s side.

Match Postponed:  Harold Wood Athletic Res  P – P  Corinthians

 

Senior Division Three

In the only match this weekend in Senior Three, ACD Utd went up to third spot with a 3 – 0 win at strugglers Hullbridge Sports ‘A’. Michael Wade, Billy Rungay and Ollie Williams all struck to give the EOFL newcomers their fourth win in eight league games thus far. Sports are yet to win this term though they will be heartened that four sides are within three points of them at the bottom of the table.

Hello and welcome to this week’s round-up of the Essex Olympian League action, which includes matches from the top four divisions, plus the Senior League Cup action on Saturday 26th October. Thanks for reading.

 

Premier Division

Starting with the six matches in the top-tier, Buckhurst Hill arguably had their match of the season as they powered to a 6 – 1 win over leaders Rayleigh Town at Roding Valley School. Suley Zuhdu opened the scoring for Mark Williams’ side before Fenti Falola’s hat-trick plus strikes by Josh Banfield and Sam Sollosi more than secured their fourth win in their last five matches. Town are now winless in their last three games now. Their lead at the top is down to a single point now as Sungate crushed Harold Wood Athletic 7 – 1 at Harold Wood Park.

Leigh Ramblers are up to third a point further back after grabbing a 5 – 0 triumph at home to Bishop’s Stortford Swifts. Andrew Webster’s brace was added to by strikes by Justin Hazell, Matt Brinklow and Jack Gardner which got the Rams their third consecutive win. Basildon Town also won this weekend, defeating Catholic Utd 3 – 2 at the Len Salmon. Jamie Bradbourn, Mark Frostick and Tommy Green all netted for Bas as they sit sixth after their third win in their last five outings.

Meanwhile, Old Southendian had strikes by Craig Paton and Harry Da Costa to thank for a 2 – 1 win over Canning Town at Garon Park. Shenfield AFC also got their maiden win of the season as they defeated Kelvedon Hatch 3 – 1. Ben Absolon, Mitchell Day and Alex Tredgett all scored to outdo Glen Golby’s goal for Hatch and put AFC up one to second-bottom.

Manford Way 1 – 4  Hutton

EOFL Senior One

In Senior One, Chingford Athletic went a point off the summit with a 3 – 2 win at FC Hamlets. Sam Coe, Alex Gordon and Gary Murray all netted for Ath as they got back to winning ways in the league. Leaders Ongar Town were held 0 – 0 by gritty Old Chelmsfordians which left both sides unbeaten but also ended Ongar’s 100% start to the campaign.

Herongate Athletic got a second straight league success as they defeated bottom side Toby 3 – 0. Lakeside now sit 3rd in the table after a 2 – 1 win at Runwell Sports. Luke Quinton’s double assisted the visitors before later being dismissed. Jordan Gregory struck for Runwell though it is five losses in their six matches thus far. Elsewhere, Ramsden Scotia got only their second win this season with a 2 – 1 win at Rayleigh Town Reserves and Snaresbrook drew 3 – 3 with Shoebury Town.

 

EOFL Senior Two

Moving into Senior Two, Leigh Town have dropped to second on goal difference as they held 1 – 1 at Ryan, thus ending their perfect start to the season. Corinthians have taken their place at the top after a 5 – 2 victory at home to May & Baker Reserves. Nathan Dewberry got another double, with John Bolton-Smith, Luke Owen and Jordan Stoneham also all on target for the Stambridge-based team. In a battle of high-flyers, Epping Town made it five wins from five as they edged to a hard-fought 2 – 1 win over Beacon Hill Rovers with new recruit Jayden Hocking-Rising scoring both goals for Billy Cove’s side.

Laindon Orient are the ‘best of the rest’ in fifth after being held 1 – 1 by improving Old Southendian Res. Greg Molford netted for Ben Manley’s side while Caiden Imbert-Thomas scored for Laindon. Rochford Town  got a crucial 2 – 1 win over fellow strugglers AS Rawreth with Harry Ford and Luke Jackson goals assisting them up to ninth spot. Finally, winless Wakering Sports were frustrated as they were held 3 – 3 by Harold Wood Athletic Reserves. Mitchell Gleeson, Ryan Gregory and Danny Pallett all netted for Sports though a brace from Joe Pyne and one from Tom Rice gave Ath’s second-string a decent point away from home.

 

EOFL Senior Three

Toby Reserves lead Senior Three by a single point after a 4 – 1 home win over Basildon Town Reserves. A brace from Luis Ruiz plus goals from Marc Porter-Brown and Rhys Willson secured the Toby side’s third straight win. Town got one back thanks to Grant Cumming though have lost five on-the-reel now. Corinthians Reserves made it five wins from as many matches after a 5 – 0 win at Lakeside Reserves. Luke Smith and Ashley Webb both nabbed doubles here with Liam Ellis also on target for Terry Rose’s side.

Wakebury were also victors this weekend as they won 2 – 1 against ACD Utd at Shoebury Park. A double from Sam Rowe for the hosts saw them to their fourth win in their last five games. Hutton Reserves got their first win of the season in a big way with a 6 – 2 victory over White Ensign Reserves at Polo Fields. George Wickings’ hat-trick led the way with Sean O’Callaghan, Josh Sumner and substitute Jack Shaw all also adding to Jack Caten’s side’s pain.

Essex Premier Cup

There was a huge array of Essex Premier Cup action this weekend and in the first of my ten featured matches this weekend, Buckhurst Hill defeated Ramsden Scotia 5 – 2 as braces from Suley Zuhdu and Dan Whitehead assisted Mark Williams’ side to the win. Nathan Sollosi had earlier got the opener as Hill progressed. Also, Corinthians advanced into the next round on their Premier Cup debut by defeating Barking Under-23’s  4 – 1. A brace from Nathan Dewberry and strikes by Jake Lang and Leo Clarke did the job for Chris Stoneham’s side in the match I attended this weekend.

Epping Town went through to the next round with a 3 – 1 win over Great Bentley, thanks to a Daniel Garfinkle brace and one from Jack Jeffries. Leigh Ramblers also got one of the results of the round by winning 6 – 1 at Flitch Utd. Braces by Justin Hazell and Pat Cannon were added to by Sam Mountstephens and new signing Jack Gardner as Wayne Seal’s side had a fine afternoon.

 

Chingford Athletic got a fine win as they travelled to Essex Senior League Reserve side Frenford Res and won 5 – 3 at the Drive. The ensemble cast of Sam Coe, Gary Murray, Louis Bollard, Warren Isoka and Mickey Mesmin were all on target for the Senior One high-flyers. Reece Morley, George Fairhead and Ryan McDonach all struck for the Frenford second-string but they went out.

Lakeside also went through with a 3 – 0 win over May & Baker Res. Luke Quinton’s penalty was followed up by goals from Matt Bearman and Charlie Ashpole as the hosts prevailed.

 

Leigh Town continued their fine form in all competitions as they defeated Takeley Res 3 – 0, with a Max Jones double and Harry Payne’s goal sending them through. Joining them in the hat, Grays Athletic Res won 3 – 1 at Old Chelmsfordians with Warren Kayembe, Karl Kayembe and Remi Awosanya strikes sending the OC’s out. Rayleigh Town Reserves outshone the lot in terms of goal-scoring as they thumped AS Rawreth 10 – 1 at London Road. The ‘doubles club’ inducted Sam Lake, James Nottage and Adam Bessadi in this match with Rodney Wilson, Teddy Rumsey, Jason Warner and Joe Pidgeon all also hitting the net here.

Finally for the featured matches, Rayleigh Town won 3 – 0 at Ryan with Henry Sims, an OG plus a Bailey Moss strike sending Paul Higgins’ side through.

In a reduced schedule of Premier matches, Catholic Utd got back to winning ways with a 1 – 0 win over Canning Town at the Len Salmon. Billy Boag got the goal that decided that match. Also, Old Southendian got their first win of their campaign with a 2 – 1 success over high-flyers Springfield. Nicolas Dubouchet was the hero with both goals for Connor Lane’s side. Kelvedon Hatch also got their fourth straight league win, defeating Hutton 2 – 1 at Polo Fields.

Basildon Town booked their passage to the next round of the Senior League Cup  with a 3 – 2 win at Shenfield AFC. Brodie Horne, Keith King and Jimmy Markham were on target for Gareth Cleverly’s team at St Martin’s School 3G.

 

EOFL Senior ONE

In Senior One, Chingford Athletic continued their unbeaten league start with a 3 – 0 win at Lakeside. Alex Gordon nabbed two and Lee Lashley got the other as they sit 2nd, below Ongar Town who defeated winless Ramsden Scotia 4 – 2 at Fyfield Village Hall to lead the standings on goal difference. Galleywood sit third after a fine 4 – 0 win at home to Snaresbrook. Luke Osborne, Tyler Tredgett, Sam Donn and replacement Max Orrin consigned ‘Brook to their first league loss this term. Rayleigh Town Res were back on song with a 3 – 1 win over Runwell Sports at London Road. Sam Lake struck twice with Rodney Wilson getting the other as Runwell are pointless from their opening three matches.

Manford Way are fifth after edging to a 4 – 3 triumph at home to strugglers Herongate Athletic. Joe Lovell got two goals for Manford, with Tom Gibbings and Tyler Le Poidevin also netting for the hosts who ended up with ten men. Shoebury Town were held 3 – 3 by Old Chelmsfordians while FC Hamlets had John Gilroy and a George Oakey spot-kick to thank for a 2 – 0 home win against Toby at Hackney Marshes which was their first win this term.

 

EOFL Senior TWO

Now we move onto Senior Two, Epping Town went top of the table with a hard-fought 1 – 0 win over Harold Wood Athletic Res at Stonards Hill. Connor Hammond got the goal in that match. For once, Town were upstaged on the goal-scoring front though as second-placed Corinthians hammered Westhamians 12 – 0 at Fairlop Oak Playing Fields. Nathan Dewberry grabbed six of those all by himself, with Jake Hodder adding a hat-trick. Sammy Ayres, Brad Smith and Jake Long all netted as well for Chris Stoneham’s side.

Laindon Orient sit fourth after being held 1 – 1 by Wakering Sports. Craig Paton gave Sports the lead before Ricky Bowyer levelled to seal a point. May & Baker Res had an away day to remember as they won 7 – 2 at Rochford Town. Isaac Eghudele got two, as did Perry with Afolabi, Smith and Agba also among the scorers here. Alex Jenkins and Joe Lovett netted for Rochford though they fell to defeat. Old Southendian Res won 2 – 1 at Ryan. Luke Stillwell and Oliver Tatton-Bennett were the scorers as their hosts stay bottom following a points deduction earlier this month. Also, Beacon Hill Rovers won 2 – 0 at AS Rawreth to go into sixth spot.

 

Essex Senior THREE

Senior Three was fairly quiet this wek due to the Essex Junior Cup action, with Wakebury getting the stand-out result, defeating Lakeside Res 5 – 3 at Shoebury Park. Harry Kateley netted twice for the home side, with Daniel Buglione, Liam Jarrett and Sam Rowe also on target. Brandon Booty’s penalty, Harry Davison and Ben Austin accounted for the Lakeside second-string’s goals though they couldn’t deny Wakebury a third win this term.

Toby Ressies handed Hullbridge Sports ‘A’ a fifth straight loss as they won 2 – 0, thanks to Alfie Sayers and Marc Porter-Brown goals. Toby’s second side rose to second as ACD Utd were held 2 – 2 by Leigh Town Ressies. Sam Payne and Frankie Markham scored for Utd though their 100% start is over. Chris Pope and substitute Ben Forsyth struck for Town though they are winless in their last three matches. Buckhurst Hill Reserves got the points without playing as hosts Dagenham Utd had to withdraw due to being unable to field a side.

Hello and welcome to this week’s round-up of the Essex Olympian League action, which includes matches from the top four divisions, plus the Senior League Cup & Essex Premier Cup action involving EOFL sides on Saturday 21st September. Thanks for reading.

 

Premier Division 

As ever, we start in the Premier Division as Springfield defeated Rayleigh Town 2 – 1 at London Road to end Town’s 100% start to the campaign. Dave Wareham’s brace for the visitors ensured Glen Wilkinson’s side got their fourth straight league win. Danny Hurford got Rayleigh’s goal though their lead at the summit is halved to three points now. Kelvedon Hatch sit third after a 3 – 1 win over Bishop’s Stortford Swifts. Billy Reynolds, Josh Smith & substitute Alan Taylor got the goals for Hatch here as they sealed a third consecutive league win. Chris Gibbs struck for Swifts though they drop to eighth.

 

Leigh Ramblers picked up a fine 3 – 0 win over Catholic Utd at Belfairs with Rhys Fatt, Sam Montstephens and Ryan Lowe all on the score-sheet for Wayne Seal’s side, who ended a four-match winless run here. The Super Hoops suffered another loss away from home as they stay in mid-table. Buckhurst Hill also maintained their fine recent form, with a 4 – 1 success at Hutton. Two goals from Nathan Sollosi plus one each from Eren Muti and Suley Zuhdu saw Mark Williams side to a third win on-the-spin.

 

Elsewhere, Harold Wood Athletic got another win with a 3 – 1 triumph at Basildon Town. Matt Donovan, Ishmael Raymond and replacement Joe Stevens all struck for Ath to outdo Keith King’s goal for Bas. Also, Canning Town got their first league win in seven this term as they defeated ten-man Old Southendian 4 – 2 in Beckton.

 

Senior Division One

In Senior One, Chingford Athletic sit second after a 3 – 2 win at Runwell Sports. Ath struck through an OG, Mickey Mesmin and Alex Gordon goals to extend their faultless record this term. Ongar Town are top though on goal difference following a 6 – 1 home win over Rayleigh Town Res. Snaresbrook are third after a 4 – 1 success over Manford Way at Nutters Field while Lakeside had Mason Iley to thank for the only goal in their 1 – 0 win at Ramsden Scotia, they sit fourth.

Galleywood won 2 – 1 at winless Toby to rise to fifth place. Nick Harvey netted for the hosts, though Jack Chatterway and Tyler Tredgett strikes saw Mark O’Sullivan’s team to the win.

Into Senior Two now and Leigh Town remain top, thanks to a 7 – 0 win at AS Rawreth. Max Jones got a hat-trick, with Oliver Raker, Jamie Yarworth, George Dansie and Tom McKeon also on target here for Jack Pearman’s team. Two other sides also have 100% records in the division with one of them being Epping Town who dismantled Westhamians 19 – 0 at Stonards Hill. To be fair, the visitors were beset by player availability issues though Billy Cove’s tea were ruthless as Connor Hammond, Alex Paraskeva, Tommie Turner and Taner Dagyaran all hit trebles while Joey May, Joe Killingback, Joe Thomas, Bradley Gayer, Sipho Mtyanda plus substitutes Ryan Folan and Eben Rowledge completed a scorer’s list so deep that it could have been reminiscent of a theatre production. Corinthians also were among the goals as they defeated Wakering Sports 6 – 0 thanks to Nathan Dewberry’s double, plus goals by John Bolton-Smith, Luke Owen, Theo Cannon and Jake Hodder as they also got their third win from three matches.

Also, Laindon Orient won 3 – 0 at Harold Wood Athletic Res thanks to strikes by Jasper Read, Ashley Blackburn and an OG to go fourth in the standings. Finally in this division, Rochford Town got a morale-boosting first win of the campaign as they won 4 – 1 at home to Ryan. Harry Ford, Luke Jackson, Alex Jenkins and Harry Maynard strikes saw John Smith’s team to victory.

 

Senior Division Three

With leaders Corinthian Reserves not in action, Collier Row went second with a 4 – 2 triumph over Leigh Town Res at the Forest Row Centre. ACD Utd also have a unblemished winning record after a 3 – 1 win over Toby Res at Westlands. Brad Falco struck twice with Sam Payne also on target for Michael Wade’s side. White Ensign Ressies sit fifth after a comeback 3 – 1 win at Lakeside Res. Harry Davison had put the hosts ahead though Erald Makolli levelled before Kieran Follett struck twice to turn the tide for Jack Caten’s team.

 

Hutton Reserves picked up their first league win of the campaign in some style with a 13 – 3 win at struggling Dagenham Utd. Sean O’Callaghan and substitute Jack Shaw both hit trebles, with Joshua Seal and Josh Sumner getting braces plus Stephen Judge, Conor O’Regan and Adam Player all also on target in a thumping win for the Shenfield-based side. Wakebury also won this weekend, with a 2 – 0 win at fellow newcomers Hullbridge Sports ‘A’. Harry Kateley and replacement Ben Munday got the goals there at Lower Road. Finally, Buckhurst Hill Res defeated Basildon Town’s Ressies 3 – 1 through goals from Keenan Gravillis, Landry Gogoa and substitute Tommy Fraine. Alex Witham pulled one back for Alex Shields’ team though they have yet to win this term.
