Sadly last Saturday saw the fun police at Basildon Town deny the presentation of the Division 1 trophy to the EOL 1st team by the league that their efforts this year deserved. Instead the trophy will be presented at this years awards night in the Eagle on the 14th June. That said the replica trophy (kindly donated by Kevin Williamson) was a more than adequate substitute. The result, although important to Basildon, was largely academic to Shenfield as they lost by the odd goal in 3. Mitch Day opened the scoring in the 1st half but Shenfield were pegged back by a 44th minute equaliser before Basildon scored a penalty in the 80th minute to secure a deserved victory. Basildon now join Shenfield in the Premier division of the EOL next season, a position that Shenfield have not enjoyed since the 2004/5 season.
Congratulations to the 1st team and the management dream team of Kevin and Luke Williamson and see you all on the 14th in the Eagle for the presentation.
