GLOBAL 0-0 BARKINGSIDE
A highly anticipated encounter which pitched the reigning champs at home to their oldest foes but it transformed into A tactical masterclass from both teams that ultimately cancelled each other out. Chances were at a premium, but the keepers and defences were resolute.
Result keeps both in the hunt for the title
NEWBURY FOREST 0-1 WEARE UTD
Tommy Jackson scored the all-important winner for Weare Utd as they stride up the table with purpose. In a tensely close fought fixture, a swift counterattack was superbly finished off to gain the points.
JK SILVERTOWN v NEWBURY FOREST
A very big chance for the home team to climb to the summit if the division if they beat the challenge of Newbury Forest. The visitors will be looking to restore some belief after a narrow loss, and this will be another opportunity to dent the hopes of a title contender.
WEARE UTD v GLOBAL
One of the most intriguing games of the day as the irrepressible force that Ross is building sees that challenge go up against one of the best teams around. A result that many will be looking out for, expect this one to go the whole way, with the winner climbing into the bronze medal position, at the very least.
FLAMENGO 0-2 SOUTH ILFORD CATHOLICS
SOUTH ILFORD CATHOLICS 3-1 FLAMENGO
A double banker which saw a struggling Flamengo fail to get to grips with a rampant Catholics side in both contests. Brendan O’Farrell & Lewis Stevens grabbed the goals in game one. In the second game, Nick Newell, Lewis Rice & William Levis scored to wrap up six devastating points on a fruitful journey to the Douglas Eyre Centre.
HILLFORD 1-0 DEBDEN SPORTS
This wonderful start by Hillford was severely tested by a Debden side still reeling from the thumping they got in a Cup Final, to the same opposition, last October. Once again though, the impressive defence held firm for Hillford, who are now in danger of going the whole season unbeaten and wondering who will score against them next.
LOXFORD LIONS 3-6 NEWBURY FOREST RESERVES
Loxford missed a glorious opportunity to cement second place as they were torn apart by a rampant Newbury Forest Reserve side. Despite a couple of goals by Chris Anele & one from Myles Nelson, it just wasn’t enough as they failed to match the clinical and devastating finishing from the visitors.
BSL VS HILLFORD
BSL hope to return to their early season form and throw a spanner in the wheels of a very impressive Hillford side. Will it be six wins from six for the visitors or will BSL rise to the occasion and find the mojo?
DEBDEN SPORTS CLUB VS LOXFORD D/H
A big six pointer for two clubs hoping to sweep the last week behind them and restore their promotion campaigns. Without a doubt, both clubs have passion flowing down from the very top and respond to their leadership in a positive way and this will be the key element in Debden this weekend.
NEWBURY FOREST RESERVES VS FLAMENGO D/H
From absolutely nowhere, Forest have come flying up on the rails and playing with a style which has seen them put others to the sword. Now they come up against a struggling Flamengo who have laboured back into action following lockdown. Whether they can raise themselves to the levels everyone knows they can achieve is anyone’s guess, but if both sides play to their potential, then this will be a very interesting double banker indeed.
BELFRY RESERVES 2-1 HAINAULT ATHLETIC
HAINAULT ATHLETIC 2-0 BELFRY RESERVES
Honours even from a keenly fought double header at the Power League. Parris Williams was able to get on the scoresheet for Hainault in game one but his efforts went unrewarded as Belfry earned the first of the three points with a great performance. In game two, Hainault turned the tables and impressed to grab the spoils, once again through Williams and another from Luke Sutcliff. Both managers paid tribute to the opposition and admitted it was a fair day all round.
ESSEX MINORS 0-3 SOMETHING FROM NOTHING
A clash of the top two brought the expected qualities in such an encounter and SFN grabbed all the headlines and narrowed the gap to 2 points with a couple of games in hand. Elisha Bolarinwa, Oscar Walton and sub-Jonathan Vandyck at the death sent the visitors into a frenzy.
HORSE & WELL 3-1 BARKING COLTS
The home team now stand alone in third place, looking very handy indeed, seeing off the challenge of a much-improved Colts side who grabbed a precious goal through Gavin Brooks. Horse & Well were made to work right to the end though and welcomed the three points at the final whistle.
BELFRY VS SHER FORCE D/H
Considering the others fixtures today, Belfry have a chance to march into third place. They will be up against a determined Sher Force team who have not had the best of luck in this fragmented season.
CARDINALS ATHLETIC VS BARKING COLTS D/H
With six points at stake in yet another double banker, this is a chance for both teams to climb away from the wooden spoon spot. Both have suffered in their last outings and are keen to put a W back on the board.
HORSE & WELL. VS ESSEX MINORS
Another top game here in Division Two as third faces top. Recent form sees Horse claim 3 wins in their last four outings while EMH have fallen twice in the last three. For the first time, the visitors may be feeling the pressure of leading the way.
SFN VS HAINAULT ATHLETIC
Between these two sides they have 9 wins in their last ten games. SFN are on a magnificent roll but a vastly experienced Hainault visit and hope to derail that train.
