Preview: Essex Senior League – Gameweek 9

Due to Covid, Hadley will not feature this gameweek meaning Southend Manor are also without a game. With this being the most open Essex Senior League in years, there is bound to be more movement this weekend, in particular, towards the top-end of the table as this gameweek included 1st vs 2nd.

West Essex vs Enfield – Friday 16th October, 7.45pm

West Essex will welcome Enfield to Mayesbrook Park for Friday Night football. West have played 7 games, picking up 10-points, as they won 3, drew 1 and lost 3. Enfield sit in 16th-place on 5-points having won 1, drew 2 and lost 4. A win for the hosts could take them into top four, albeit temporarily, and I think they will get the much-needed win.

Score prediction – 3-1

Clapton vs Redbridge – Saturday 17th October, 3pm

Clapton will welcome Redbridge to the Terence McMillan Stadium. Clapton find themselves second-from-bottom, 4-points ahead of bottom placed Woodford, having drew four and lost 3. Redbridge are currently 9th after 6-games having won 3, drew 1 and lost 2. Clapton have failed to win this season and will look to do so as Micky Wetherall faces his former club but I think the spoils will be shared.

Score prediction – 1-1

Cockfosters vs Hashtag United – Saturday 17th October, 3pm

The biggest game of the weekend sees Cockfosters welcome Hashtag United to Chalk Lane. Cockfosters are currently top by a single point after 7-games, having won 6 and drew 1. Hashtag United sit 2nd after 7-games, having won 6 and lost 1. A win for either side would see them end the weekend top-of-the-league and I think Hashtag United will pick up the win.

Score prediction – 1-2

Hoddesdon Town vs Saffron Walden Town – Saturday 17th October, 3pm

Hoddesdon Town will welcome Saffron Walden to Lowfield. Town currently sit in 4th, having won 4, drew 1 and lost 2 whilst Walden sit in 8th having struggled this season with 2 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses. The teams sit 3-points apart and I think Hoddesdon could double that lead with a good home form having won 2 of 3 games.

Score predicition – 3-2

Sporting Bengal United vs Ilford – Saturday 17th October, 3pm

Sporting Bengal will welcome Ilford to Mile End on Saturday. Bengal sit in 13th-place after 7-games having won won 2, drew 1 and lost 4. Ilford sit a couple of places below their opponents having played 6-games with 1 win, 2 draws and 3 losses. I think Ilford will go above their opponents with a good win.

Score prediction – 0-2

St Margaretsbury vs Stansted – Saturday 17th October, 3pm

St Margaretsbury will welcome Stansted to the Recreation Ground. St Mags sit in 14th after 6-games, having won 1, drew 3 and lost 2 whilst Stansted are currently 5th, having played 7-games. They won 4, drew 1 and lost 2. I think Stansted will be too strong for St Margaretsbury and will get the win.

Score prediction – 1-4

Takeley vs Woodford Town – Saturday 17th October, 3pm

Takeley will host Woodford Town at the FSI Stadium. The hosts sit 12th after 7-games having won 2, drew 1 and lost 4 whilst Woodford Town sit rock-bottom having lost all 7 of their games. The two wins Takeley have picked up have seen them score 12 goals and I think they will add to that with a win over the Woods.

Score prediction – 4-1

Walthamstow vs Sawbridgeworth Town – Saturday 17th October, 3pm

Walthamstow will welcome Sawbridgeworth to the Lodge. Stow sit in 6th after 7-games having won 4 and lost 3 whilst Sawbo sit in 11th after 8-games, having won 2, drew 2 and lost 4. The Stags will hope to close the gap on the top-five and I think they will get the win over the Robins.

Score prediction – 3-0
