Ryman Division 1N: Waltham Abbey 1 Redbridge 4

Redbridge enjoyed their best return of the Ryman Division One North season at Capershotts last night.

Denied victory at Harlow on Saturday, after letting a two-goal lead slip in a 2-2 draw, Motormen took the lead after 18 minutes against high-flying Abbey as Emiel Aiken struck.

Daniel Charge doubled the visitors lead just three minutes into the second half, but Jasper Owen hit back within a minute to give Abbey hope.

Motormen restored their two-goal cushion 17 minutes from time, though, when Aiken netted again.

And they capped a fine night with a fourth goal from Charge in the last minute of normal time.

Motormen are back in action tomorrow night (Thursday), as they welcome Conference South side Bishop’s Stortford to Oakside for a friendly (7.45pm).

Joint managers Dave Ross and Ricky Eaton will then finalise preparations for a home league meeting with lowly Ware on Saturday.

Redbridge: Driscoll, Worrell, Smith, Mclean, Thomas, Damali, Bradbury, Carlile, Charge, L Thompson, Aiken.

Subs: Zaeem, Sawyer, A Thompson, Bansende.


Greenhouse London 1 Ilford 1

Ilford came from behind to earn an Essex Senior League point in north London last night.

After a goalless first half, the home side broke the deadlock from the penalty spot after the restart.

But Foxes, beaten 3-1 at home by Great Wakering at the weekend, refused to be beaten and grabbed a share of the spoils thanks to a late equaliser.

Martin Haywood’s men visit Tower Hamlets on Saturday.

Ilford: Sole, Hinds-Cadette, Graves, Maskell, Cavalier, Duguid, Sincliar, Pattinson (Russell), Hill (McDonald), Nelson, Gardiner.
