On a very chilly & breezy afternoon at Southchurch Park, Southend Manor took on Hullbridge Sports in an interesting Essex Senior League match. For the hosts, winger Jamie Brown was banned and Nathan Dewberry led the forward line with support from the trio of Fatt, Sighiartau and Zamani behind him. Hullbridge were looking to build on a good point at Waltham Forest, new signings Jordan Meikle, Perry Dunn, Joe Pattison and Michael Salako all started for the visitors.

Both sides took a little time to settle down into the match, with few chances materialising in the first quarter-hour. Manor were on the attack when winger Rhys Fatt’s header couldn’t find a way past visiting goalkeeper Jamie Merralls. Fatt did break the deadlock though on twenty minutes as forward Nathan Dewberry’s flick-on found the winger and he slotted home past Merralls into the left corner. The hosts had another good chance seven minutes later as from a corner, Dewberry’s powerful drive was well-saved by Merrralls.

Hullbridge came back into the match though as on 32 minutes as forward Michael Salako had a goal chalked off for off-side. Two minutes later, they were level as midfielder Ashley Pibworth’s drive found the left corner. The visitors pushed for more and home ‘keeper Klinton Makayabo had to be alert to gather winger Charlie Buffin’s 30-yard effort. Centre-back Perry Dunn’s header went wide from a free-kick as the first-half headed to a close.

Hullbridge took the lead two minutes before the interval as Makayabo missed an in-swinging Taylor corner and Pibworth popped up at the back post to grab a tap-in. In truth, there wasn’t much between the sides at the break though the visitors held a slender lead.

Half-Time: Southend Manor 1 – 2 Hullbridge Sports

After the break, Manor looked to restore parity though couldn’t create many clear-cut openings. Even so, they were level on the hour as substitute Jamie Alexandrou’s deep cross found its way to Fatt at the back stick who made no mistake to seal his brace.

The hosts were only level for seven minutes before Hullbridge re-took the lead as Buffin’s pass found Salako who slotted home to grab his first goal in a ‘Bridge shirt. Manor could well have been level soon afterwards though Merralls pulled off good saves to deny efforts from Hamid Zamani and substitute Bayley Newell.

‘Bridge extended their lead with 11 minutes remaining as another Taylor free-kick found its way to skipper Jimmy Cox who slotted home well past Makayabo. Late on, Manor captain Lee Delf’s header was saved by Merralls though it was Hullbridge’s day.

To be fair, Manor were not at their best going forward or in possession today though Hullbridge were more sturdy at the back and had more energy about them in their play and they did deserve this victory in the end, this being new boss Darren Manning’s first win since taking charge.

Hullbridge will savour this performance and it may give them a lift ahead of next weekend’s FA Vase tie at home to Enfield 1893. For the record, Enfield suffered a 0-5 home defeat to FC Romania today.

Hello & welcome to the round-up of this weekend’s action in the Essex Senior League here on my blog. We start with the Friday night match, then move to the various matches that took place in the ESL on Saturday.  And there’s a run-down of the results from the Essex Olympian League matches.

On a nice autumn’s evening at Southchurch Park, Enfield 1893 were the the visitors as they took on Southend Manor in another Essex Senior League encounter.

After a fairly even start to proceedings, Enfield were awarded a spot-kick as the referee adjudged there was a hand-ball in the area on ten minutes. Forward Danny Jones stepped up and duly converted to give the visitors an early advantage. Manor almost responded two minutes later though forward Jacob Cleaver’s shot was saved by visiting ‘stopper Michael Corderoy. The hosts did level on 28 minutes as from Jamie Brown’s corner, full-back Alfie Lindfield snuck in to get a tap-in, beating Corderoy to the ball.

Matt Hanning’s side nearly re-took the lead on the half-hour though forward Carl Mullings had his strike saved by home custodian David Leader. Mullings was giving the home defence something to think about though defender Ross Johnson did well to snuff out the threat on 33 minutes as the ball trickled out for a goal-kick. Enfield did re-take the lead ten minutes before half-time, Jones made a good run and was well-found and the forward passed the ball into the net when one-one-one with Leader to grab his second of the evening.

Manor had a few chances to level before the break though Brown couldn’t find the target and Cleaver’s close-range effort was saved by Corderoy.

Half-Time: Southend Manor 1 – 2  Enfield 1893

The second half began with both sides trading chances, Jones could’ve put the visitors further ahead though couldn’t find the target eight minutes after the interval. Soon after, Manor full-back Robbie Norris blazed his shot over the bar and Lindfield was also denied by Corderoy. Manor felt aggrieved when with twenty minutes or so to play as forward Bayley Newell made a surging run and whilst battling with a visiting defender in the area, went down though the referee did not award a spot-kick, much to the consternation of the home bench.

In the latter stages, both Jones and Mullings missed chances for Enfield to put the game to bed, being denied by Leader. The hosts were running out of time though pushed for an equaliser and got it in the nick of time as substitute Rhys Fatt’s ball into the area was seized on by Newell who slotted home past Corderoy who was unable to keep it out.

Manor maybe deserved the point for their endeavour though Enfield will feel they should have won this match. They looked comfortable at times though they also had enough chances to prevail here.

Saturday 21th October

Southend Manor   2 – 0     Wadham Lodge 

Venue: Southchurch Park    |   Attendance: 60

Manor continued their recent revival with victory over Wadham at Southchurch Park. A second-half brace from forward Bayley Newell did the job for Stuart Marshall’s side who rise to 14th in the table now. Wadham have to shrug off their poor record away from Kitchener Road, they’ve lost every one of seven away matches in the ESL thus far.

Sporting Bengal Utd   2 – 3    Barkingside

Venue: Mile End Stadium   |    Attendance: 20

‘Side struck late to grab all three points at Mile End. Chid Onokwai put Michael Walther’s side ahead after 12 minutes before Tony Cookey doubled the visitors’ lead on 34 minutes.

West Essex   1 – 0   Stansted

Venue: Mayesbrook Park      |      Attendance: 23

Sawbridgeworth Town  1 – 3    Southend Manor

Sawbridgeworth did pull one back after the break through Joe Wright.

Stansted     3 – 1    Waltham Forest

Venue: Hargrave Park     |     Attendance: 47

Stansted did the damage early to seal a good win over inconsistent Forest at Hargrave Park.

Takeley   5 – 4     Enfield 1893

Venue: Station Road      |     Attendance: 61

Takeley got the better of a nine-goal barnstormer at Station Road.

Tower Hamlets  2 – 2    FC Romania

Venue: Mile End Stadium      |     Attendance: 31

Wadham Lodge  3 – 3   West Essex

Venue: Kitchener Road           |        Attendance: 16

West Essex’s recent defensive frailties were again highlighted as they were held at Kitchener Road. In a good first-half for the visitors, talismanic striker Michael Mignot [35’ & 40’] put the visitors’ two-up at the interval. Danny Palmer cut the hosts’ arrears in half on 62 minutes. Mignot completed another hat-trick with 15 minutes remaining as West Essex looked set for a good win. Not to be though as goals from Ben McAllister [79’] and Ben Musaka [89’] grabbed a point for the bottom-placed side.

Woodford Town (2017)  3 – 2    Basildon Utd

Venue: Goffs Lane       |     Attendance: 65

On a fairly chilly afternoon at Southchurch Park, Southend Manor welcomed in-form Redbridge in another Essex Senior League encounter on Non-League Day.

The first began with the visitors edging the early-going though 13 minutes in, it was almost bad luck for the visitors as from full-back Lee Scott’s right-wing cross, Manor’s Robbie Norris scuffed his shot at the near post. The visitors did get into their stride somewhat though strikes on goal from front two Brian Moses and Calvin Poku failed to find the target.

The Motormen did take the lead eleven minutes before the break as a long-ball found Poku in space and then one-on-one with Manor goalkeeper Liam Pitts, buried his low strike into the left corner. Redbridge led at the break as Manor couldn’t quite find their rhythm going forward though did battle quite well against the formidable Motormen front four.

Half-Time: Southend Manor 0 – 1  Redbridge

Seven minutes into the second half, Moses’ shot was saved by Pitts, A minute later, Manor forward Bayley Newell’s drive went wide of the left-side post. The vistors extended their lead on 61 minutes as after Moses was involved in the build-up , winger Reside Coxi-Sebastfao struck home from close range. Ten minutes later, Manor substitute Charlie Barlow’s shot called Redbridge goalkeeper Lewis Greene into action though he made the save. Soon after, the visitors were three goals up as after Pitts had denied Moses’ effort, winger Joshua Hutchinson tucked in the re-bound. Newell then tested Greene again with a goal-bound effort which the visiting custodian saved with his foot.

With ten minutes remaining, there was a coming together as Redbridge forward Moses and home goalkeeper Pitts challenged for the ball on the edge of the goalkeeper’s area which left both players down. However, it soon became apparent that the ‘keeper had clearly come off worse for wear and the match was halted while an ambulance was called. I must mention that Moses stayed with the stricken stopper for some time, before and after the paramedic crew arrived. Given the situation, the referee eventually called the match off with ten minutes still to play. Pitts suffered a suspected broken leg. I sincerely wish Liam the very best in his recovery and I am sure the entire Non-League community would also echo that sentiment.

As far as the result goes, the League will ultimately decide whether the result will stand or not, though at present I believe it may stand.

Essex Senior League & EOFL round-up (1.10.17)

Written by Scott W  (Twitter:@ScottMHC14)

Hello & welcome to the round-up of this weekend’s action in the Essex Senior League here on my blog. The full fixture programme returned on September 30th, as most ESL sides were in FA Vase action last weekend. After the updated ESL table, there’s a run-down of the results from the Essex Olympian League Premier Division, Division One & Division Two. How did your side do this time around? Find out below. Enjoy.

Saturday 30th September

Barkingside  1 –  1 Sawbridgeworth Town

Venue: Cricklefield   | Attendance: 48

Barkingside came from behind late-on to hold a determined but depleted Sawbridgeworth side to a draw at Cricklefield. Debutant Billy Skinner put the hosts ahead on the half-hour. Despite increasing pressure from the hosts towards the end of the match, it did look at though Town might have held on although they missed two or three good chances themselves. It wasn’t to be though as substitute Gareth Jones slotted home well to give Michael Walther’s side a point.
