Essex Senior League: St Margaretsbury 2 Woodford Town 1
Woodford Town’s disappointing start to the season continued as they went down 2-1 at St Margaretsbury on Tuesday evening.
Things looked bleak at half time as the hosts took a 2-0 goal lead into the interval, not surprisingly in the current climate the opening goal came from a hotly disputed handball decision many observers felt very harsh.
