Essex Senior League: Ilford 3 Stanway Rovers 1
Ilford sealed a 3-1 win over Stanway Rovers as the club marked the game with a Kick It Out day of celebrations and events.
Goals from Lamaar Douglas, Callum Maltese and Alejandro Seoane Barber sealed the three points for the Foxes to keep them in the top half of the league table at Cricklefield Stadium.
The Rovers opened the scoring as Tyler Kemp found the net with an absolute belter in the 14th minute.
But only three minutes later Seoane Barber levelled the score line and that’s how it remained heading into the half-time break.
Ilford were awarded a penalty in the 67th minute, in which Douglas stepped up and dispatched it to give his side a 2-1 lead.
Maltese then sealed the deal as he found the net from 22 yards out with a free-kick to make it 3-1 in the 75th minute.
Ilford now sit ninth in the table and host their final home fixture of the campaign against Hullbridge Sports this weekend.
