The big tie between Belle Vue and Dunmow Town was called off as there were two-hattricks and two-braces on a Saturday with plenty of action in the Essex & Suffolk Border League Division One. There were a total of 43 goals over the course of 7-games.
Hedinghams United recorded their 2nd win of the season with a 6-1 win over Boxted Lodgers with a hattrick from Toby Parsons as well as goals from Barnie Pullinger, Charlie Whalley and Joe Lewis. Owen Bryan’s goal for the Lodgers was not enough but merely a personal accolade whilst Silver End United and Stanway Rovers Reserves also recorded big wins. A brace from Todd Hollocks as well as goals from Dan Gage and Adam Hewitt was enough as Silver End recorded a 5-0 over Holland A whilst Stanway Rovers Reserves lifted themselves to 13th with their second win of the season with a 7-1 win over West Bergholt Reserves, who remained bottom with their 6th defeat of the season.
FC Clacton were victorious in a 10-goal thriller as they beat Mersea Island 6-4. The win for the reserves saw them go level on points with Alresford Colne Rangers Reserves and up to 3rd as a hattrick from Andreas Antoniou-Garcia as well as goals from Sean Hillier, Harry Whitehead and Cam Dolphin were enough despite the four-goals from Mersea.
There were also wins for both Gosfield United and Shrub End United. Gosfield recorded their 3rd win of the season and moved up to 11th in the table as they beat Stanway Pegasus Reserves. A goal from Tariq Mansell was not enough as Bobby Pike got a brace whilst Dean Gilder and Ollie Clifford were also on target. Shrub End United were up to 7th as they beat Cressing United 4-2.
There was also a draw as Alresford Colne Rangers Reserves held Coggeshall United Reserves with a 1-1 draw. The draw meant Alresford closed the gap on Belle Vue to 4-points whilst Coggeshall United were 6th with their second draw of the season.
