MATCH REPORTS 11TH MAY 2013
Leli Bajada, Michael Black and Jason Brown scored the goals for Hutton Old Boys in their 3-1 win over Springfield which confirmed them as Premier Division Champions. Second place is also almost certain to go to Little Thurrock Dynamos as they beat Met Police Chigwell 6-2. Stuart Jones scored Met Police Chigwell’s goals. At the other end of the table a single goal for Sungate against White Notley was enough to give them their first win since mid October.
The Division One title will be settled on the last day of the season. Manford Way are in pole position following their 4-0 win over Herongate Athletic. Britannia and Old Chelmsfordians played a double header on Saturday with Britannia winning the first game 4-1 and Old Chelmsfordians triumphing 3-2 in the second game. The weather has been so poor this season Old Chelmsfordians have played a quarter of their League season in the last eight days. This meant Mark Allison who has been the “most unused” substitute in the entire League this season getting a chance from the bench which he took by scoring one of the goals. Daniel Kirby, Carl Raby, Michael Rivers and Benjamin Wakerly scored Rosebay’s goals in their 4-2 win over Old Parmiterians which confirmed their place in Division One for next season.
Division Two East
This Division could still be won by any one of three sides. Cricketers Horndon Saxons are the favourites following their 5-0 win at FOBS (East Hanningfield). They need just a point to win the title, although a four goal defeat in their final game could see them miss out on promotion. Hawkwell Athletic are in second place but will have to sit and wait to find out their fate following their 6-0 defeat to Leigh Ramblers on Friday night. Howard Mackler scored four times to take his tally for the season to twenty eight, with Sinclair Walton and Steven Isbell getting the others doing the damage for Leigh Ramblers. White Ensign are the other side who could win the title following their 1-1 draw with Dunmow Rhodes. They would need to beat FOBS (East Hanningfield) on Saturday and hope Cricketers Horndon Saxons slip up.
Division Two West
Having clinched the title in mid week, West Essex finished the season with a 1-1 draw with Hale End Athletic. Christopher Warren’s 69th minute goal gave them the point having trailed at half time. Goals from Wayne Robinson and Rodney Edwards for Harold Wood Athletic weren’t enough to earn any return against Maidonians as the host scored four times in reply. Old Parmiterians and Ryan shared six goals with Ryan’s coming from Peter Dawes, Andrew Morgan and Ryan Roche.
Division Three East
Writtle’s 5-1 win at Silver End United confirmed their promotion.
Division Three South
Runwell Town moved a step closer to promotion thanks to a Stephen Hales hat trick against Benfleet. Colin Yellop scored the other goal in their 4-0 win.
Division Three West
Heath Park sealed the League and Cup double in fine style by hitting Westhamians for six. Paul Hayes and Neil Homes with braces and single strikes from Robbie Carrington and Lee Riley allowed the celebrations to start. Second placed Debden Sports slipped to a 5-1 home defeat to Rainham Working Mens Club. The visitor’s goals coming from a David Maynard hat trick, Steven Page and Bradley Ward.
Division Four East
Old Chelmsfordians Reserves finished as Divisional Champions but the Runners Up spot is still to be decided. Ludlows are currently in second spot after their 3-0 win over Hannakins Farm but will have to wait for Hutton Old Boys Reserves remaining results to see where they finish. Hutton Old Boys Reserves kept up their promotion push with a 2-1 win against Rayleigh. White Notley Reserves finished their season with a 3-2 win over Horndon thanks to goals from Kevin Ketteridge, Kevin Moore and Will Rigby.
Division Four West
Both games in this Division featured eight goals. Doddinghurst Olympic’s were six from Trevor Sharpling and one each from Colin O’Neill and Paul Boor against Lowhall.
