Essex & Suffolk Border League – Saturday 24th October


ESBL Premier Division

At the top of the standings are Gas Recreation, despite being held to a 3 – 3 draw by Lawford Lads at Salary Close. Strikes by Aston Firkins, Shane Goodyear and Callum Rogers’ ninth league goal of the season wasn’t enough to grab their eighth league win of the campaign as Lawford responded through a brace from Jack Wood and one from Oliver Mann. Dean West’s side are still four points clear at the summit, whereas Lawford remain 15th after one win in their eight games thus far. Nearest challengers Colne Athletic were also held at home this weekend as they drew 2 – 2 with White Notley. Daniel Bradley and substitute Aran Yarwood both netted for Notley but replacement Gareth Evans was dismissed. Kane Dobrowolski scored his fifth league goal of the campaign for the visitors, with Regan Farley-Hearn also on the score-sheet to keep Notley in seventh.

There was no such trouble for third-placed Great Bentley who comfortably defeated Dedham Old Boys 4 – 0 at the Village Green. Joseph Hurd struck twice to take his tally to five this term already, with Archie Herbert and lead scorer Louis Olymbios notching his eighth this season to see Jack Murray’s side to the points. Dedham’s usually tight defence was outclassed here and drop to ninth spot. West Bergholt continued the theme of stalemates for the top four as they drew 2 – 2 with Hatfield Peverel with Benjamin Adams and Joshua McFaull netting for Peverel in this one.

Elsewhere, Stanway Pegasus notched their fifth win in their seven matches this term to rise to fifth spot. They won 2 – 1 at Flitch Utd with Callum Griffith grabbing his seventh league goal of the campaign and Jake Plane both scoring for the visitors. Alresford Colne Rangers drop to sixth after being held 3 – 3 by draw specialists Earls Colne at Ford Lane. Ryan Lewis got two goals for Rangers here with Jack Johnson getting the other goal but strikes by Keiran Adams, Connor Randall and Benrico Stripe made sure of a point for Earls who have drawn five of their seven games thus far.

Also, Tiptree Heath rise to eighth after a 3 – 1 triumph over Felixstowe & Walton Utd Res, thanks to goals from Charlie Green, Joe Chester and replacement Billy Coe. Declan Cameron responded for Felixstowe but Rhys Henry saw red which only made the afternoon for the strugglers, who remain 17th. In the last game this weekend in the division, Little Oakley Res defeated Sudbury Sports 3 – 0 with Robert Pratt getting two goals here, plus Jamie Eades notched his sixth league goal this term to send his side up to tenth, with Sports a place and two points behind, though they do have four more matches in hand on Oakley’s second-side.
