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.

The Woods improved after the break and could easily have grabbed something from the game after Luke Parrott had reduced the deficit.

Although defeat leaves Woodford anchored to the foot of the table, Manager Dee Safer was pleased with the fight his side showed in the second half.

Safer said: “Of course it’s disappointing to find ourselves in the position we are but we fought very hard tonight and could easily got back in the game.

“It has at least set the standard for the effort needed to kick start our season at Clapton on Saturday.”
