Redbridge came from a goal down to beat Southend Manor in the Essex Senior League thanks to a brace from Jacob Dingli.

The sides had only last met in the league 35 days ago, with the Motormen going down 4-2 at Southchurch Park.

And the match looked to be following a similar narrative at Oakside Stadium when the hosts fell behind to a Callum Ibe goal in the 23rd minute.

But with just a minute left in the first half, Redbridge drew level when Dingli struck for the first time.

Dingli was soon at the double as he struck the Motormen’s second just 14 minutes into the second half to put the hosts ahead for the first time.

Redbridge held on for the win, their first in three league matches, to move up to 12th.

Redbridge: Mernagh, Roult, Carter, Odutola, Parrish, Kettle, Gent, Kyungu, Dingli, Weemes, Coxi-Sebastfao

Subs: Good, Mehmet, McCann, Sangolo, Miller


Barkingside let a two-goal lead slip as drew 2-2 away to high-flying Takeley in the Essex Senior League.

A Charlie Portway double had put Side two goals up at Station Road, but the hosts forced a draw after Jason Todd struck twice.

Barkingside: Birch, Ademilyu, Fontaine, Francis, Laird, Lutaaya, Mitchell, Nottage, Portway, Ruzgas, Wright
