Senior Division One Report

Last Updated: 26 March 2017

Basildon Town secure promotion after beating Old Southendian 3-0 with Tommy Barton, Ashley Blackburn and Darren Phillips providing the goals. Catholic United took a step closer to joining them after they also register a 3-0 home win at the expense of Great Baddow. Mike Sammut, Dan Trenkel and Dan Williams scored a goal apiece for Catholic United. The Division One title is now being eyed up by these two sides, with Basildon also still in the Senior League Cup while Catholic United contest the Essex Premier Cup on Wednesday. With the promotion business almost tied up, means that there is still the relegation issue to be decided; with London APSA helping their cause with a 3-1 win over Runwell Sports, who notched a reply via Conner Barmby. The team above them, Old Chelmsfordians, lost 4-3 at Newbury Forest. Elliott Walker (2) and Martin Mixture were the OCs marksmen and seven points now separate the two teams battling to avoid the drop. Shenfield AFC beat bottom of the table Newham United with a nap hand on Saturday as Will Marlowe’s brace was added to by efforts from George Cunningham, James Brett and Alex Tredgett and the win also was made sweeter as they kept a clean sheet in the process. Hutton picked up a 3-0 win at Galleywood courtesy of strikes from Dan Grenell, Carl Dutton and Dan Carpenter.
