Worcester City 1 Thurrock 2

The Dizzy Heights of the Blue South league is where you will find Thurrock following another tremendous away performance which takes them up to third place.

Unbeaten when on their travels, Thurrock are proving to be the surprise team of the season, only one defeat in eleven league games confidence is at an all time high.

With manager Hakan Hayrettin having to reshuffle his defence due to suspensions and injuries he started with Paul Olima in the back four, having failed to score when playing up front Paul went forward for a corner in the 36th minute and planted the ball firmly into the back of the net with a splendid header.

Thurrock continued to control the game and never seemed to be in any difficulties and when Leon McKenzie added a second on the hour the game looked won.

They managed to finish the game with eleven players on the field but only just, when Ryan Andrews pulled down Alfie Carter in the 83rd minute all the Thurrock supporters thought it was red card number seven but thankfully the referee showed him a yellow.

From the penalty Craig Wilding reduced the deficit to one, but Worcester could not break down the Thurrock defence in the remaining minutes giving the Fleet the victory.


  1. Cant appear to post this in the education section

    It may be that our schools have become like our banks. With all the money that’s been sloshing about in education for the past 20 years or so, schools have gotten themselves burdened with too many overpaid staff at the top ( the heads cronies ). Even in a relatively small school you may find a deputy head, an assistant head, a business manager, a semco person, a management team. All quite well paid positions that often do no teaching. When a school starts to run into budget shortfalls it is the lowest paid members of the teaching staff who are expected to take the brunt. Those who can afford it least. It may be that as the school budget crisis deepens, as it surely will in the next few years, we will have to make cuts to the top of the pay chain as well as at the bottom. One head teacher of a Norfolk school put himself on a four day week and took a pay cut to save the jobs of five staff members. This is an excellent example to set, and should be considered by school governors and education chiefs across the county as an alternative to redundancies.
