Essex Senior League: Burnham Ramblers 1 Ilford 4

Wale Odedoyin’s hat-trick helped Ilford end their campaign on a winning note at Leslie Field.

Odedoyin’s treble took his tally for the season to 16 in just 19 appearances, while long-serving striker Chris Stevens was also on the mark for the Foxes for the eighth time this term.

Ilford celebrated a fourth win in five outings and clinched fifth place as a result and boss Allan Fenn tweeted: “Now our season is over, we’d like to thank each ESL club for their hospitality throughout the season. See you in August.

“And thank you to the supporters who have watched us over the season & of course thanks to all the officials. #ESL #Foxes.”


Takeley 2 London Bari 2

London Bari had to settle for a point against lowly Takeley at Station Road, but can still climb up to seventh place this season.

Chris Davis’ men visit Greenhouse on Monday, before hosting Burnham in their final match of the season two days later.

Wins in both matches would see Bari finish on 66 points and possibly in seventh place if the result in the match between Wadham Lodge and Sawbridgeworth goes their way.


Newham 0 Southend Manor 4

Basement boys Newham fell to a fourth successive defeat to remain nine points adrift at the bottom of the table.

Beaten 3-1 at Tilbury’s Chadfields ground by Eton Manor less than 48 hours earlier, Shamrez Darr’s men slipped to their 26th defeat of a difficult campaign against Southend Manor.

And they will hope to end the season on a better note when they travel to the V&E Sports Ground in Cheshunt to take on Eton Manor on Monday.

Newham: Agdelen, Baker, Clarke, Khan, Lewis, Nsamu, Parker, Shaw, Sighiartau, Wilson, Wright.
