EOFL Premier Division

In a full programme of Essex Olympian League Premier action, Kelvedon Hatch arguably got the stand-out result with a 5 – 1 win at Hutton. Steve Barlex, Dan Gillard, Anthony Aylett, Andy Edmunds and an OG secured an excellent day at the office for the visitors.

Elsewhere, another brace from Steve Townsend assisted Buckhurst Hill to another victory, this time at home to Springfield. Steve Sollosi got the other goal as Hill got their fourth straight win. Harold Wood Athletic won 3 – 1 at Old Southendian with Charlie Liddiard, Ade Onileyan and Robert Whitnell all finding the net.

Meanwhile, Great Baddow got their first win of the league season, winning 3 – 2 over Leigh Ramblers. Nav Arain’s double plus a strike from Ben Cross sealed the points, with Harry Hansom and Andrew Webster scoring for Ramblers who saw their 100% start to the season end here.

Sungate also won 3 – 2, at home to local rivals to Manford Way. Jack Clarke’s brace and a Bobbie Port goal saw the the hosts win their second win in three games. Manford have lost all four matches thus far this term.
