Action from Crostyx seconds clash with Upminster


Crostyx women got the better of Old Loughts in their local derby on Saturday.

Joint player of the match Sophie Bennet worked tirelessly along with Sophie Smith and Nat Cole.

Kat Hawes and Immy Murphy had chances to score, while Donna Blockley, Chloe Pollock and Vicky Berrill held firm at the back as the first half ended goalless.

And as the match was drawing to a close, a short corner fell to Hawes, who fired into the bottom corner to seal a 1-0 win.

The men had to settle for a point from a 0-0 draw at Cambridge University, as Dan Hunn, Roberto Harrison and Billy Gibbon impressed.

James Buckingham had the best chance to break the deadlock but his shot hit the keeper’s pads.

The seconds lost 2-0 to Upminster and the fourths 2-1 to Havering, but the thirds thrashed Clacton 13-0.

The women’s seconds beat Upminster 2-1, while the thirds defeated Chelmsford 2-0 and the fourths saw off Brentwood Academy 1-0 with a long-range goal from Gill Woods.
