Heath Park FC v Writtle FC Venue: Billericay Town FC On a chilly but bright afternoon Billericay Town FC welcomed the first of the leagues Cup Finals for 2014 and a tight tense affair it proved to be. Both teams ensured there was little time for either side to settle as anyone with the ball was closed down very quickly which meant forwards had little time to dwell on the ball and therefore there were few goal-scoring opportunities.

All the games that survived the weather this weekend in the League were played on Astroturf with four Clubs switching venues to enable matches to take place. Division Two East Sporting Club Woodham and Tillingham Hotspur took part in a closely fought encounter which was affected by the strong wind. Tillingham Hotspur took the lead on 18 minutes when the wind held the ball up on the edge of the area which meant the Sporting Club Woodham keeper couldn’t use his hands as he challenged for the ball. It broke to Scott Jones who rolled the ball into the net. Sporting Club Woodham equalised on the half hour when Aaron Smith finished at the far post. Picture is Ryan
