Premier Division Report

Last Updated: 26 March 2017

Hannakins Farm may lead the table but Kelvedon Hatch ripped them apart on Saturday with a first half display that saw them go in at half-time leading 5-0. Nick Carpenter pulled one back but the first half maelstrom that Kelvedon unleashed included a Mike Daniels hat-trick; Lee Hamill supplied the other two. Second-placed Springfield kept the pressure on by winning their game at White Ensign 2-0. Ross Lamb and Adam Vyse provided the goals and with games in hand can overtake Hannakins Farm if they win those fixtures. White Ensign sit just above the drop zone and their day was made even worse as Buckhurst Hill cancelled out Brad Foley’s strike for Harold Wood Athletic by scoring twice themselves. The 2-1 win means that Buckhurst Hill are now only a point behind White Ensign. Harold Hill remain bottom after a 4-1 defeat at May & Baker E.C. Josh Gill, Lamar Lamounis, Kane Messenger and Jordan Calverly scored the May & Baker goals with Zach Holding notching the Harold Hill consolation. Rayleigh Town made it two wins on the spin that sees them edging away from the relegation zone. Despite going in goalless at half time, the hosts then raced into a 3-0 lead thanks to a brace from Peter Beaumont plus a further goal from the boot of skipper Chris Brown. Frenford pulled two goals back, both scored by Bradley Nobbs, but Rayleigh held on to pick up a valuable three points. Tom Phillips grabbed the Canning Town goal in a 2-1 defeat at Manford Way who scored their goals via Julian Lloyd and Suley Zuhdu. Jacob Cleaver scored twice for Leigh Ramblers who beat Bishops Stortford Swifts 2-0.
