Results 6th May 2017

Luke and Kevin Williamson took charge of the final game of the season at champions Basildon and secured an unlikely 2-1 victory courtesy of goals from Josh Sumner and Alex Broadbridge in the last 5 minutes. The result meant that they finished in a highly creditable 3rd place in Senior Div 1. Not quite enough for promotion, but with the EOL due to discuss the divisional constitution for next season in the next couple of weeks who knows. Any how, well done to Luke and Kevin on what must be seen as a successful campaign and a springboard for next season where we hope to secure outright promotion to the top flight.

The Over 45’s made it through to the semi final of the League Management Trophy following a 5-1 victory over Dunmow. Perry Charles continuing his fine run of form with a hat-trick and 1 each from Paul Carey and Manager John Henderson. The Geriatrics face those lovely lads from Harold Hill in the semi final next Saturday.
