Essex Senior League: Redbridge 2 Takeley 3
Redbridge suffered their first league defeat of the season as they fell 3-2 to league leaders Takeley.
Motormen substitute Taylor Tombides nabbed a brace but it wasn't enough to cancel out a brace from Bryn Thorpe, and a goal from Reece Barrett at the Oakside Stadium.
Thorpe opened the scoring in the 18th minute and then doubled the lead 20 minutes later to help his side take a 2-0 lead into the half-time break.
Seven minutes into the second-half Tombides found the back of the net to reduce the deficit.
