Herons lost for first time in London Two North East this season

Wanstead head coach David Wiggins says it is important his team move on quickly following their first defeat of the London Two North East season.

The Herons were beaten 42-7 at home by league leaders Rochford for their first league loss since October 2016.

Joe Jones crossed for the solitary try for the hosts, which was converted by Tim Coughland.

It was a result that brought an end to Wanstead’s perfect start to the campaign, but Wiggins acknowledged his side were second best against Rochford.

“It’s our first league loss in almost a year, but we can’t complain about the result,” said Wiggins.

“The match can be summed up with one word: accuracy. Rochford were more accurate than us on the day, so we have to accept that and move on.

“There are still 17 league games left this season and I’ve told the boys not to beat themselves up about the result because Rochford will be near the top at the end of the season.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
