In a hard-fought encounter on Friday night, 'Side made it two wins from two in the Eastern Senior League after beating a good Hackney Wick side at Cricklefields.
The winning goal came on 83 minutes, when Hackney were down to ten men because of a sin-binning. Substitute Jacob Dingli was brought down in the box, with the experienced Dan Jones coolly stroking home the spot-kick.
It was the midfielder's second goal of the season, and one which would earn a vital three points. 'Side are back in action on Saturday when they meet Isthmian Premier outfit Bowers & Pistea away in the Preliminary Round on Saturday 24th August. Kick-off at the Len Salmon Stadium will be at 3pm.
'Side: Charlie Howson, Nathan Saunders, Joe Strange (Ben Clarke), Berkcan Belindir, James O'Brien, Elliot Scott, Francesco Balestrini (Muyiwa Osenie), Archie Hammond, Olajide Yusuff (Jacob Dingli), Dan Jones, Joe Oates
Subs Not Used: Josh Hayward, Ali Rajim
