Hello & welcome to another of my round-up pieces, this time looking at the Essex Olympian League action on Saturday 5th January, with a firm round-up of the Premier Division, all the way to Senior Division Four.

EOFL Premier Dvivision

Leaders Buckhurst Hill continued their superb form with a strong 4 – 0 home win over lowly Manford Way.  Suley Zuhdu’s brace of penalties, Josh Addinall and Josh Banfield saw Hill to a 13th win in 14 league matches. Harold Wood Athletic were in no mood to concede any ground though with a 4 – 1 victory over Canning Town. Reiss Kingsley notched two while goalkeeper Martyn Guest and Charlie Liddiard also scored to maintain the gap to Hill to three points. David Tilley got the Canning goal as they sit in 8th spot.

Catholic Utd got their 5th straight league win with a big 6 – 0 triumph over Great Baddow at the Len Salmon Stadium. Tom Hollingsworth was among the goals again with a treble, while Thomas Kearney got two and Tony Jacobs also chipped in. Kelvedon Hatch lost ground on the top-two as they were held 1 – 1 at home by fellow high-flyers Bishop’s Stortford Swifts. Alan Taylor netted for Hatch while Gavin Cockman replied for Mark Watters’ side.

Leigh Ramblers are the ‘best of the rest’ in fifth, seven points adrift of Swifts in 4th as they defeated Rayleigh Town 3 – 2 at Belfairs Park. Max Jones and Harry Talbot struck for Rayleigh though a Justin Hazell double plus one from Jamie Selby-Knight saw Ramblers to their fourth win in their last seven. Mid-table sides Hutton and Old Southendian drew 3 – 3 at Polo Fields. Jon Hilliard netted twice and Brad Freeman also scored for the hosts, with Jon Staines joining in ‘on the brace front’ with two goals and Riley Oliver getting the other goal.

Springfield drew 2 – 2 with Sungate with Peter Morgan and Anthony Pantaleo  strikes for the hosts being cancelled out by Jermaine Purchase and Chris Barry goals for the visiting side.

 

EOFL Senior One

Most of the goal-power in Senior One was found in Basildon Town’s mammoth 12 – 2 triumph over May & Baker Reserves. Keith King and Alex Witham both got hat-tricks while Barv Walkuaika and substitute Brodie Horne grabbed two each and Daley Grant and Jamie Miller also chipped in for the hosts. Kevin Badu and Tim Ojo goals were scant consolation for the bottom side.

Mid-table Ongar Town won 6 – 1 at Rayleigh Town Res, largely thanks to Ben Polley’s hat-trick and Niki Love’s double. James Stevens got the other strike for Ongar and Charlie Legg netted for the hosts. Snaresbrook maintained their six-point lead at the summit with a slender 1 – 0 win at Shenfield AFC. Max Catherall got the only goal in that one.

Ramsden Scotia leapfrogged Shenfield into second spot with a 2 – 1 home success over strugglers Old Chelmsfordians. Kurt King and Sam Wren provided the goals for the hosts, with the prolific Martin Mixture getting one back for the visitors. Finally for this division, Herongate Athletic won 2 – 0 at home to Frenford Res, as Glen Jordan and substitute Joe Barness struck for Ath to see them up one to 10th.

 

EOFL Senior Two

In Senior Two, Lakeside maintained sixth spot with a 3 – 1 hom triumph over fellow mid-table side Harold Wood Athletic Res. Joe Pyne netted for Ath though Ollie Pettit, Charlie Ashpole and Drew Klessa-Smith goals did the business for the hosts.

Meanwhile, Runwell Sports went three points clear at the summit with another big win, 6 – 1 at home to Ryan. Aaron Rix got two of them, with Charlie Adams, Declan Clark, Scott Mortlock and Carey Wallace all notching. Beacon Hill Rovers went third with a fine  2 – 1 win at Shoebury Town. Mat Kosinski and David Howard goals were enough to give Rovers their ninth win this term.

There were plenty of goals elsewhere as Toby lost ground on the leaders as they fell to a 4 – 1 loss at Chingford Athletic. Ross Dipple netted again for the visitors though Eric Kelly’s brace & Joe Cloake and Gary Murray goals saw Ath open up a eight-point gap on Rochford Town. Newham Utd produced a fine display to defeat Rochford Town 6 – 3 with Lisandro Tavares striking twice though Omar Jomanday, Abraham Kwaku Adjei, Mikel Smith and sub Kaci Henry all also chipped in. Ashley Fowles star turn with a hat-trick wasn’t enough for Town.

 

EOFL Senior Three

In Division Three, Academy Soccer continued a good run with a 2 – 0 home win over Hutton Res. Luis Ruiz got both of the hosts’ strikes. Basildon Town Res moved four points clear of the bottom with a good performance in a 3 – 1 away win at bottom side Old Chelmsfordians Res. Levi Harbour, Alexander Shields and Andrew Wiggins were the names on the goal tally for Bas. Jake Henry responded for OC but they fell to their 11th loss this season. Old Southendian Res notched their seventh win this campaign with a 4 – 2 home win over White Ensign Res. A brace from Greg Molford was added to by David Stubbs and Oliver Tatton-Bennett strikes. Perry Osborne and substitute Chadrack-Kisoka Domingo netted for Ensign here.

Leaders Westhamians extended their lead to four points with a 2 – 1 success over Wakering Sports with Kenny Liddiard and Lewis Rix strikes seeing them to the win, Tom Vine netted for Sports.

 

EOFL Senior Four

In Senior Four, it was another strong weekend for the top teams. Corinthians added to their fine season with a 3 – 0 win at Catholic Utd Reserves. Leo Clarke, Jake Lang and Bill Wilton all netted to see the Stambridge-based side to victory. Dagenham Utd also won ‘on the road’ with a 2 – 1 victory over Canning Town Res with Mark McAuley and Lanre Sodeinde both finding the net.

Epping Town stayed fourth in the standings with a superb  7 – 2 win over strugglers Old Barkabbeyans. Glen Warwick led the way with a hat-trick with substitute William Weightman getting two and former Ilford pair Joe Killingback and Alex Paraskeva also notching. Lakeside Res also won, 3 – 2 at fellow mid-table side Galleywood Res with Harry Davison getting a brace and Brandon Booty also netting. Matthew Buckingham and Sam Rawlinson struck for the hosts but they fell to their third defeat this term.

Goals from Thomas Oliver and Corley Ross saw Shenfield AFC Res to a 2 – 1 victory over Buckhurst Hill’s second-string, who stay third. Finally, Toby Ressies comfortably defeated bottom side Leigh Ramblers Res 4 – 1 as Peter Spicer nabbed two while Charlie Ross and Leroy Sackey-Addoo also got on the score-sheet.

Hello & welcome to another of my round-up pieces, this time looking at the Essex Olympian League action on Saturday 15th December, from the top tier to the results from Division Four.  Also this week as we have hit the rough -mid-way’ point of the season, also in this piece are the lead goal-scorers from the top four tiers (Source: FA Full-Time – EOFL Section)

EOFL Premier Dvivision

Leaders Buckhurst Hill continued their superb season thus far with a huge 9 – 1 success at Canning Town. Suleyman Zuhdu led the goal-scorers for Hill with a hat-trick with Steve Townsend netting a brace plus Josh Banfield, Nathan Sollosi, Sam Sollosi and Sonny Shilling joining that cast with one each. Patrick Damali netted the scant consolation for the home side.

Kelvedon Hatch joined the ‘heady goal-club’ as well with a big 8 – 3 home win over Leigh Ramblers. Ramblers got their goals courtesy of a brace by Jamie Selby-Knight and one from Ben Munday though Hatch overwhelmed them as Theo Ola and Anthony Aylett both netted hat-tricks and Dan Gillard & Dan Johnson also chipping in to give the hosts their fourth straight league win.

Old Southendian also had a day to savour with a fine 6 – 1 home triumph over Springfield. Ryan Stillwell nabbed two goals while Riley Oliver, Elliott Hemmings, Nick Henesy and Matt Tonking all also struck to render Dare Wareham’s strike for the visitors a mute consolation. Harold Wood Athletic continued their strong campaign with a 4 – 2 success at Rayleigh Town. Town struck through Jack Long and Damien Siemienczuk goals though a double from Lee Newton allied with one each for Matthew Donovan and Scott Williams sealed the win for Ath, they are unbeaten in eight matches now.

Catholic Utd defeated Sungate 4 – 1 as two goals from Tom Hollingsworth and strikes by Aaron Baldwin and Jamie Salmon saw the Super Hoops to victory.  Strikes by Tom Price and Chris Skingley saw Hutton to a 2 – 1 comeback victory at lowly Manford Way, who had led through Lee Lashley’s strike. Great Baddow held high-flying Bishop’s Stortford Swifts to a 2 – 2 home draw as Ashley Cole and Dan Gage goals for Baddow were levelled out by Mark Robinson and Michael Moore for Swifts, who are now unbeaten in the league since their first match of the campaign.

Daniel Pandele’s effort was not enough to prevent M & B’s seventh straight defeat in the league.  Leaders Snaresbrook continued on their merry way with a 2 – 0 triumph at Galleywood as efforts from Scott Hill and Max Catherall were enough to seal their ninth win of the season.

Herongate Athletic continued their recent revival with a 2 – 1 success at fellow strugglers Old Chelmsfordians. Glen Jordan and Ben Warren strikes outmatched Gareth Williams’ goal for OC. Athletic now only four points adrift of FC Hamlets in fifth spot in an increasingly-congested mid-table.

EOFL Senior Three

Division Three provided goals aplenty as well as Laindon Orient waved goodbye to boss Neil Blackburn (who has joined Bostik North side Basildon Utd) with a fabulous 8 – 2 home win over fellow high-flying side Old Southendian Res. Jason Purewal grabbed a hat-trick with Henry Ballard and Ally Collins both getting braces with Jason Warner also on target. Tom Margerison and Pete Jelley strikes were not enough to prevent their second loss this term.

Leaders Westhamians retained their four-point cushion at the top of the standings with a 3 – 0 home win over Roydon. Jamie Reddington’s brace was supplemented by Ryan Creed’s goal as the hosts keep their unbeaten stretch this season. Basildon Town Res leapt off the foot of the table with a fine 5 – 3 win at fellow strugglers Hutton Res. Alex Shields contributed a double with Ross Jeffrey, Sam Green and Levi Harbour also on the score-sheet. Strikes by Tony Winchelo, Adam Player and Tom Biddiss weren’t enough to save the day for the home side.

Wakering Sports and Academy Soccer both continued their good seasons. Sports overcame Old Chelmsfordians Res 5 – 0 at Cupids Country Club. Jamie Brown, Conor Cobb, Bill Crumpton, Aaron Marshall and Brennan Nolan all hit goals for Aaron Bloxham’s men. Academy picked up a fine 4 – 0 win at White Ensign Res.

Round-up: Essex Olympian League (Sat 1st Dec) [EOFL 3.12.18]

Written by Scott W [Twitter: @ScottMHC14]

Hello & welcome to my round-up of this weekend’s action in the Essex Olympian League, from the Premier Division all the way to the results from Senior Division Four, on the first weekend of December.

Saturday 1st December

EOFL Premier Division

 

Harold Wood Athletic leapt to the summit of the top-tier with a 4 – 2 win at Manford Way. Scott Williams and substitute Brad Foley both nabbed braces as Ath secured their ninth win of the season. Manford responded through goals from Tyler Le-Poiderin and Jimmy Nganga though their losing run extends to ten matches. Kelvedon Hatch went second with a narrow 3 – 2 triumph over Canning Town in Beckton. Ben Gibbons, Daniel Johnson and Theo Ola all notched to continue a great season thus far for Hatch. Canning are half way through their league campaign and remain in mid-table.

Elsewhere, Leigh Ramblers hit five in an impressive 5 – 3 success at Springfield. Alfie Halliday, David Wareham and Josh White all struck for the hosts though Ramblers overcame them thanks to a double for Montana Stewart plus one each for Ronnie Bridges, Justin Hazell and Jamie Selby-Knight, which sees them rise to fifth place. Catholic Utd finally erased their winless streak with a 3 – 0 victory over Hutton and their new home of Bowers & Pitsea’s 3G Len Salmon Stadium. Patrick Kearney, Aaron Baldwin and Louis Robinson provided the strikes to see Dan Trenkel’s side to within a point of nearest rivals Great Baddow.

 

EOFL Senior Division One

Two matches in the division took place this weekend, with Old Chelmsfordians upsetting mid-table Frenford Reserves 4 – 2 at the Drive. Tom Tinsley-Gardner’s double and further strikes by Tyrese Fairmaner and Martin Mixture saw OC to their third win this season, though they have only played seven matches thus far.

In the other fixture, Galleywood defeated Ongar Town 4 – 2 as well at Clarkes Field. A brace for Tom Lakin set them on their way while Sam Donn and Tyler Tredgett goals completed the damage. Ongar have a taste for scoring goals themselves this term and struck two back through Ross Carpenter and Peter Davies though they fell to 9th spot. Galleywood rise to 6th after this victory.

 

EOFL Senior Division Two

In Senior Two, leaders Runwell Sports pulled three points clear at the summit with a 4 – 1 home success over third-placed Toby. Declan Clarke was among the goals again, grabbing a pair while Jordan Gregory and Thomas Howe added to the score-sheet. Des Gallen netted the solitary reply for the visitors though Sports have struck an impressive 26 goals in just five home matches thus far.

Meanwhile, A Tyson Browning hat-trick saw Beacon Hill Rovers to a 3 – 1 win at Upminster. Matthew Taylor got the consolation for the hosts, who still haven’t won at Belhus Park this term. Rovers move up to 6th spot.

Rochford Town got the better of a tough contest, with a 3 – 2 home win over Lakeside. David Watson hit 10 goals for the season with a brace here, with Aaron Smith getting the other goal. The visitors made it tight through strikes by Sam Pettit and Luke Quinton though they stay 5th while Rochford solidify themselves in 8th place. Finally for this division, Ryan won 5 – 0 at May & Baker ‘A’ who continue to really struggle this season with 12 defeats in 12 matches.

 

EOFL Senior Division Three

Goals were aplenty in the two league matches that took place. Hutton Reserves secured only their third win this season with a 4 – 0 victory at fellow strugglers Old Chelmsfordians Reserves. Harry Calder, Gaston Mendy, Tom Stephens and Tony Wichelo all scored to elevate themselves to 8th spot while OC’s Ressies remain second-bottom.

The Len Forge Centre saw a cracker as White Ensign Reserves held Laindon Orient 3 – 3. Jon Wightman grabbed a brace while Dean Nevill got the other strike for the hosts though their endeavours were cancelled out by Samuel Lake’s brace and substitute Rodney Sarsah-Wilson’s goal. Ensign’s second-string remain in mid-table while Orient missed the chance level on points with leaders Westhamians.

Hello and welcome to another of my extended round-up pieces covering the top five tiers of the Essex Olympian League. How did your local side do this weekend?

Saturday 24th November

EOFL Premier Division

In a reduced fixture list due to Essex Premier Cup action, Harold Wood Athletic and Bishop’s Stortford Swifts took the opportunity to reduce the gap to leaders Buckhurst Hill to a single point. Athletic won 3 – 2 at Great Baddow thanks to strikes by John Bradley, Robert Whitnell and substitute Brad Foley to remain 2nd because of their superior goal difference. Swifts are right there with them in terms of points as they won 2 – 0 at Leigh Ramblers. Charlie Brown and Danny Morgan goals saw the visitors to their fourth straight win.

Meanwhile, Old Southendian powered to their third win of the season in defeating Catholic Utd 4 – 0 at Garon Park. Jon Staines and Ryan Stillwell both netted as the hosts were assisted by two OGs as Utd continued their mystifying league form. Rayleigh Town also won, 3 – 2 at home to Canning Town. Joe Hall and Kevin Songolo struck for the visitors though a Paul Morris brace, either side of a strike by former Hullbridge youngster Damien Siemienczuk aided Rayleigh to a third win in their last five and elevate them to 5th place.

Essex Premier Cup R’s

Beacon Hill Rovers  0 – 3  Hutton

Buckhurst Hill  5 – 0  Sungate

Galleywood  2 – 0  Old Chelmsfordians

Kelvedon Hatch  2 – 1  Chingford Athletic

Tiptree Heath  5 – 1  Shoebury Town

EOFL Senior Division One

Now we head into Senior One and we start with a fine win for Rayleigh Town Reserves who won 6 – 1 at bottom side May & Baker EC Res. Doubles for James Nottage and Billy Field were added to by Charlie Sullivan and Taylor Armstrong as Town rose to fourth spot in consigning their hosts to a fifth straight loss. FC Hamlets continued their fine recent form with a 3 – 2 win at Ongar Town. Tyler Sanago-Ishmael, Charlie Heatly and Farren Smith provided the goals for Hamlets and although Town responded through James Stevens and Ross Carpenter, they went down to their fourth loss in five league matches.

Ramsden Scotia had a day to remember with their 5 – 2 home win over Basildon Town. Max Corrigan got another brace with Sam Wren, Ryan Leddra and Anthony Driscoll all also netting to overwhelm Town who pulled two back through the prolific Sener Suavi. Shenfield AFC had a Robbie Hobbrough hat-trick to thank in a 3 – 0 home victory over Herongate Athletic for their fourth league win on-the-bounce which keeps them third. Elsewhere, Frenford Reserves won 2 – 0 at Snaresbrook, who lost for only the second time his season.

EOFL Senior Division Two

Next, in Senior Two, three matches saw 18 goals scored. Harold Wood Athletic’s Ressies matched leaders Runwell Sports on points with a 2 – 1 home success over Rochford Town. Jason Patmore’s goal for the visitors was outdone by Joe Pyne’s brace as Town remain 8th. Lakeside got the better of joint-leaders Toby 5 – 3 thanks to five different goal-scorers. Drew Klessa-Smith, Connor White, Matthew Vambe, Ollie Pettitt and Ryan Budd made up the five while Ben Turner, David Major and Junior Bammeke all notched for Toby who were dethroned to third due to only their second loss of the season.

Newham Utd also hit five with a 5 – 2 win over May & Baker ‘A’. Omar Jomanday secured a treble while Lisandro Tavares also netting a brace to send Newham into 9th place with only their second win this season. Runwell Sports’ match with Upminster ended in an away walkover as their hosts couldn’t field a side.

EOFL Senior Division Three

It was another goal-laden weekend in Senior Three as 23 goals flew in from five matches. First, Wakering Sports won  5 – 3 at Basildon Town’s Reserve side. A hat-trick for Mike Curtis and a brace for Nick Bettis saw them Aaron Bloxham’s side on their way to the points though Town played their part in an entertaining match with Tommy Green bagging a brace and Jake Bridgeman also netting though Sports went fourth with this result.

Laindon Orient reduced Westhamians’ lead at the summit to four points with a 2 – 1 triumph at Hutton Reserves. Jasper Read and James Shadwell’s penalty provided their sixth win in seven matches for Neil Blackburn’s side. Hutton responded through Tom Biddiss though they stay 9th. Leigh Town were held 1 – 1 by Roydon with Zac Mashford’s goal for Town being cancelled out by Charlie Rider for Roydon.

2018-19 Season Review – Essex Olympian League Premier Division (part 1) [EOFL PDR 20.11.18)

Written By Scott W  (Twitter: @ScottMHC14)

 

Hello and welcome to the first of a mini-series of articles looking at the EOFL divisions thus far this season. We start off with the top tier – the Premier Division with a look at all 14 sides from the bottom-up.

 

The beginning of the season saw somewhat of a upheaval with the likes of May & Baker, Frenford & White Ensign moving up to compete in the new Eastern Senior League South at Step 6. To compensate, a number of existing EOFL sides were promoted into the Premier Division (Step 7) and they were Great Baddow, Hutton, old Southendian, Sungate as well as Div One Champions Buckhurst Hill.

As I write this in mid-November, most sides have played ten matches and filling the bottom two places are Manford Way and last season’s champions Catholic Utd. Manford sit bottom after a very difficult start, with nine losses from their nine matches so far. A narrow loss at Rayleigh Town on the opening day started off the train which hasn’t yet been stopped. Arguably the biggest issue on-the-pitch at present is their scoring record: Nine goals in those nine matches.

Catholic Utd are the only other side yet to win this campaign and to be fair, a transition both in terms of management and a change in venue to Bowers & Pitsea’s new 3G pitch may have added to things. The ‘Super Hoops’ have only played eight matches, mainly due to Cup action (They also heavily beat Frenford Res in the Senior Challenge Cup in August). Their only points this season have come in the shape of draws at Bishop’s Stortford Swifts and at home to Leigh Ramblers in a rare midweek match. With their form in the Anagram Records Trophy (which they won last season), surely their league form will pick up at some point.

The next three sides (in 10th,11th & 12th) are promoted sides in Old Southendian, Sungate & Great Baddow. In one of these twists, all three sides have conceded 23 goals so far. OS had a rough start to proceedings with five straight losses though a big win over Manford Way prompted a run of only one loss in their last four matches. Sungate started with promise with wins at Kelvedon Hatch and at home to Manford in their first three matches though they are winless in their last six outings as they are finding out how strong the division is perhaps. Great Baddow round out this mini-group as they started the campaign with three defeats on-the-bounce though a home win over Leigh Ramblers and at Manford suggested an upturn may come. It hasn’t as yet as they are winless in their last five though a comfort to them may be that the three sides ahead of them are within five points of them at present.

 

Ahead of them in quite a tight cluster are five sides in the form of Canning Town (5th), Hutton (6th), Leigh Ramblers (7th), Rayleigh Town (8th) and Springfield (9th).

Springfield started fairly slowly with one win in their opening five though have picked up a bit recently with wins at Leigh Ramblers and at home to Old Southendian and it is that home form which may be a solid base for them, as for many sides in this tier for the remainder of the season. Rayleigh Town have made a solid start to the division and the stat the stands out for me is they’ve only conceded ten goals in their nine matches to date. They count wins over Hutton and Great Baddow as part of their fairly strong record at home.

Leigh Ramblers and Hutton made good starts themselves to the season though the latter have picked up in recent weeks with three straight wins (all at their Polo Fields pitch to Catholic Utd, Canning Town and Sungate respectively) which coincides with their increased goal-scoring threat. Leigh brought in a few new signings in the summer, all of whom have played at Essex Senior League level or higher and though at least three of them have since departed, it will be intriguing to see how they get on in the next few months.

Canning Town are another of the sides who have done well at home, at their ground in Beckton. They’ve beaten the likes of Catholic Utd and Springfield there whilst also can get the odd result away from home too so they probably will be happy with their work thus far.

Now onto the top four, which have a cushion on those below though only four points separates the top lot. Kelvedon Hatch in 2nd are two points clear of Harold Wood Athletic (3rd) and Bishop’s Stortford Swifts (4th) who are separated only Ath’s superior goal-scoring prowess. Buckhurst Hill have continued their superb form of last season to top the standings by two points.

Let’s look at the 3rd and 4th-placed sides first. Swifts have only lost one in ten thus far, with that coming in their opening match at Hutton. Since then, seven wins in nine matches has brought about wins over leaders Buckhurst Hill and Canning Town in recent times. Factor in that they don’t score many, little over a goal a game on average and you need a miserly defence and they have it – nine goals shipped thus far – the second best defensive record in the division at present.

Harold Wood Athletic are a side known to pose a threat and they started well with four wins in their first five league outings showed they meant business. They are strong at Harold Wood Rec though their battling qualities were also in evidence when I saw battle to a win at Leigh Ramblers (Summary here: survivor16b.wordpress.com/2018/11/03/match-summary-leigh-ramblers-0-2-harold-wood-athletic-eofl-3-11-18/  ) earlier this month. They are unbeaten in their last four also.

Kelvedon Hatch sit 2nd, thanks largely to a run of eight games unbeaten and are the best goal-scoring side in the top-tier thus far. It’s always handy to have goals throughout the team and that logic seems to apply to Hatch. When you average nearly three goals a match, you know you’re in for a game and Kelvedon are also unbeaten away from home currently as well.

Finally for this tier, Buckhurst Hill have almost flawless record with nine wins from ten matches, with that only blemish coming at Bishop’s Stortford Swifts. They also have a knack of grinding out wins and that is no bad thing, as well as being able to pile the goals on. They are unbeaten at their Roding Lane ground and the longer that run holds, the more likely they may be to be among the top teams this term.

Thanks for reading.

Skipper Reiss Kingsley got both goals as Ath won their seventh match of the season while Ramblers are now winless in their last five outings.

Match Summary: Leigh Ramblers 0 – 2 Harold Wood Athletic (Sat 3rd Nov) [EOFL 3.11.18]

Essex Olympian League – Premier Division

Saturday 3rd November – 2pm KO

Venue: Belfairs Park

2018-19 Season: Match 30

Leigh Ramblers: Navy Blue & Black Shirts, Black Shorts & Black Socks

Harold Wood Ath: Maroon & Sky Blue Shirts, Maroon Shorts, Sky Blue Socks

Gritty Ath trimuph at Belfairs Park

Harold Wood Athletic made to a trip to Belfairs Park in this Essex Olympian League Premier Division encounter, the only one of the day because of the Essex Premier Cup action.

The hosts had the better of the early action and although they were wary of Ath’s forward line, led by Robert Whitnell, they had two efforts cleared off the goal-line. Although the hosts were unfortunate to not be ahead, the match was pretty even for most of the first half before the visitors went in front thanks to fine work by after a fine run down the left flank, Ade Onileyan’s ball in found skipper Reiss Kingsley running in at the back post who helped himself to a tap-in on 27 minutes.

Half-Time: Leigh Ramblers 0 – 1 Harold Wood Athletic

After the break, Ramblers did have a bit more of the ball though they didn’t carve out too many clear-cut oppurtunities, partly due to the strong defensively display of the visitors, led by Matt Donovan who won no shortage of headers during the whole match.

Just past the hour, the Rams goalkeeper made a really good save, denying a crisp strike which looked like it was heading into the top corner. In the latter stages, Kingsley got his and his side’s second after another good run down the left from the lively Onileyan resulted in a goal-mouth scramble though Kingsley [82′] slotted home well.

Just a minute later, Whitnell’s header was well-denied by the Rams ‘keeper and although the visitors ended proceedings with ten men thanks to Whitnell being sin-binned for dissent, they held on for a hard-fought victory. Ath rise to second spot after their 7th win this term while Leigh stay in seventh spot.

Full-Time: Leigh Ramblers  0 – 2  Harold Wood Athletic
