Essex Senior League: Redbridge 3 Hadley 2

A late 84th minute goal from in-form Tony Martin made it four consecutive wins for Redbridge in the Essex Senior League as they beat Hadley 3-2.

Goals from Taylor Tombides, Darnel Bromfield and Martin of course sealed the win for the Motormen in a thrilling contest at the Oakside Stadium.

The hosts broke the deadlock in the 34th minute as a brilliant reverse through ball found Tombides in the clear and he finished beyond goalkeeper Alexandru Gavriloaia.

Two minutes later they doubled their lead when Darnell Bromfield let fly from range to find the back of the net.
