GLOBAL 3, SKRT 2

After their earlier season troubles, the reigning champions are moving ominously into position following another dogged performance that secured them the points against a combative Skrt FC. The Clarke brothers grabbed a goal apiece while Sammie Scates scooted in with another. One each for Dori Duraku and substitute Arsid Mustali just couldn’t get the visitors over the line but showed they can be a match for the best in the division.

ESFC Premier Cup

BELFRY 4, AC MILANO 2

A Jamie Redington hat-trick plus one from Liam Pickett enabled Belfry progression into the next round of the top cup competition of the ESFC. They will now meet Global in a repeat of last season’s classic semi-final and an opportunity to gain revenge for a tough last minute loss.

AC Milano hadn’t lost this seaosn but found their higher league opponents in devasting early form. Goals from Kammy & Luki were consolations in the event but showed they have what it takes to compete with the top teams in the league.

A Quick Round-Up

A club record win sees Hillford now head the Division One table. Four points seprate the top five but nobody can be effectivley ruled out.

In Division Two, Uplands Town are up to second courtesy of the edge in a ten goal feast with Rainham. Leytonstone returned to winning ways and are third. South Ilford await the outcome a postponed game and may climb the table. Loxford were in cup action and had a narrow win over One Twenty (D3).

In league action from Division Three, Newbury Forest Reserves continue their amazing run with a defeat of Barking Colts. Cardinals made hay while the sun shined and were literally out of sight before Esprit decided to turn up. It sets up an interesting return fixture next week!

All other games were postponed.

Many of you will know that we have been attempting to spread the word and the importance of grassroots football in the community.

It’s not always about the winning but the contribution each of you give to the game. There are many unheralded volunteers who give freely of their time to make sure this great game is a success. 

BigFootballer TV are working with us here at the Essex Sunday Football Combination to promote the activity and are meeting some resistance when approaching clubs. We are not using these people to police your games and nor would we expect anyone to use the material in any other way than its intended purpose.

Therefore, even if you do not have a full squad or a weakened first XI…….even if your striker hasn’t washed his hair or found their favourite boots!, we ask that you still allow the TV guys to come along and capture the essence of Sunday morning football. What you go through every given week (hangovers, cold weather, no-shows, can’t be bothered) is exactly what needs to be highlighted. 

Kriso & his team are doing a wonderful job and we need more of it to complete the picture and for them to reach their target of showcasing most of our clubs.
