Docker’s Boss Ecstatic Over Last Gasp Victory

AN 93rd minute winner by Ibrahim Conteh put Docker’s Boss Paul Vaughan in seventh heaven as they secured only their second victory of the season away at Cheshunt.

Cheshunt were buoyed by a spectacular comeback at Rookery Hill on wednesday night when they recovered from 3-0 down to draw 3-3. With that in mind, the Dockers lined up in a 4-5-1 formation.

Many were watching to see if Tilbury would see red for the eighth match in succession.

Paul Vaughan said: “None of the sendings off could be described as reckless. It has been something of a learning curve for young lads. There are tackles for which they may have received a yellow in the Eastern Junior Alliance. Here, they will get a red.”

But Paul Vaughan has made personnel changes that have bolstered the side with Mark Clarey at the back and the likes of Joel Etienne-Clark continuing to frighten the life out of defences.

But when Cheshunt equalised in dubious fashion in the 89th minute, Paul Vaughan was gutted. He said: “We had worked so hard that I really felt for the lads.

“But they dug deep, showed great fitness and with four minutes of injury time, Ibrahim Conteh bundled home the winner in the 93rd minute.”

Paul Vaughan added: “The team were on cloud nine travelling home and we are really looking forward to going to Thamesmead on Tuesday.

“This team are a work in progress and we thank the fans for being patient. The jigsaw is slowly being put together.”
