Side lost 6-1 at home to Woodford Town last Friday

Barkingside head to Saffron Walden Town on Saturday, still in search of their first Essex Senior League win of the season.

Side have endured a difficult start to the new campaign and have taken just four points from their first 15 league games.

The Cricklefield Stadium club have lost on 11 of their 15 league outings this term, with the latest defeat coming last Friday.

At home to London Borough of Redbridge rivals Woodford Town, Michael Walther’s men suffered a crushing 6-1 defeat.

Walther will hope to see a response from his side this weekend as they make the trip to Saffron Walden in the league.

However, it looks like it could be another tough afternoon for Side as they come up against a Bloods side currently second in the standings.

Town have also only lost once at home in the league this term, so it seems an uphill task for the Cricklefield Stadium outfit on Saturday.
