Daen Ingas stay top of the league after a 2-1 defeat of Infield. Matt Pullen pulled back a late goal with a fantastic volley, similar to David Platt's stunner against Belgium in 1990. Infield continue to improve and will be confident of getting out of relegation after recent displays.
Two goals each from the formidable pair, James Robinson and John Watson were enough to see off Hatfield Swan Inn. It finished 4-0 to Priory Sports who made it six wins from six league games.

League Division One

Little Baddow continue to show signs of inconsistency as they drew 3-3 with a very good Writtle Manor team. This result clearly shows their quality which they fail to achieve on a regular basis which would see them further up the league standings. Billy Ryan, Joe Collins and an own goal earned Manor their point.
William de Ferrers beat Marconi Leisure 4-3 in a seven-goal thriller to stay top of the league. Marconi put in a very good shift and found the net through Chris King, Duncan Childs and an own goal.

Old Chelmsfordians secured a great 6-1 win against one of their toughest promotion rivals in Woodham Athletic Reserves. Paul Tiffen (three), Max Johnson, Ryan Baxter and Stu Lockwood secured the vital win for OCs.

League Division Three

Priory Sports Reserves edged out Broomfield Reserves in an entertaining fixture. It finished 2-1 as goals from Aaron Baker gave them a 2-0 lead before Jake Stevens pulled one back. Soon after, Priory's dominance had weakened as Broomfield picked up their display but they lacked quality and endeavour to find a way through.
Howbridge Swifts Reserves and Hanningfield produced the game of the day in an amazing 4-4 draw which neither side deserved to lose. The hosts' goals came from Newlove, Panting, Bush and Yates. Brinkman, Knights, Matheson and King pulled the goals back for Hanningfield after trailing 2-0 and 4-2 during the game.
