Buckhurst Hill managed to open a two point lead after they were successful on Saturday, whereas Kelvedon Hatch were held to a draw. Suley Zuhdu and Steve Townsend both scored braces, with Billy Wells the other scorer as Buckhurst Hill beat Canning Town 5-0. Kelvedon Hatch remain on Buckhurst Hill’s tail but were held to a 2-2 draw by Old Southendian who cancelled out Mike Daniels double with goals from Ruari McIntyre and Reece Brandon. Danny Morgan scored the Bishop’s Stortford Swifts goal in a 1-1 draw at Harold Wood Athletic; while a superb free kick by Tom Price for Hutton didn’t provide all the points as Leigh Ramblers also scored via Jamie Selby Knight. Rayleigh Town returned to winning ways with a 4-1 win over Great Baddow. Paul Morris opened the scoring in the 5th minute with a curling shot from outside the box; Bailey Moss doubled the lead, Harry Talbot then made it 3-0 and although Great Baddow were able to reduce arrears via an Ashley Cole goal, it then became 4-1 when Cameron Glover closed the show with a shot from the edge of the box.
The top three all won on Saturday. Snaresbrook remain leaders after Tyriquee Solomon’s hat trick gunned down Rayleigh Town Res, the 3-0 win keeping them top on goal difference as Ramsden Scotia were only 1-0 winners over Galleywood, with Ryan Leddra the scorer. Ongar Town were the biggest winners though as they sent Herongate Athletic packing as James Stevens (2), Lee Perry, Sean Green and Ben Polley all scored in the 5-0 win. Defeat sees Herongate slip into the drop zone, as Frenford Res. managed to climb out of it after winning their basement battle with May & Baker E.C. Res. 4-1. Perry Tamburrini scored the May & Baker goal and they remain at the foot of the table after this result.
A Dom Binns hat trick ensured that Shoebury Town took all the points in a 3-2 win over Runwell Sports that keeps them top of the table. Aaron Rix and John Smithwick scored the Runwell goals who also had Billy Moxley sent off. Harold Wood Athletic Res. remain second despite a 2-1 set back at Toby. The hosts scored through Justin Clarke and Des Gallen, while Chris Pope scored for Harold Wood who are now three points behind Shoebury Town. Ryan beat bottom-placed May & Baker E.C. ‘A’ 2-0, while Lakeside were 6-1 winners over Beacon Hill Rovers courtesy of a Drew Klessa-Smith hat trick. Connor White added a further two, with Charlie Ashpole the other scorer. Beacon Hill Rovers replied via Charlie Brewer.
There was only one game in Division Three and it supplied a few goals as Laindon Orient scored five times without reply against White Ensign Res. Sam Lake bagged a hat-trick with Rodney Wilson and a stunning free kick from James Shadwell completing the tally and moving Laindon Orient up to fifth.
