Gordon Brastead Memorial Trophy: Saffron Walden Town 5 Woodford Town 3
Woodford Town suffered their fifth successive defeat despite a much improved display at Saffron Walden in the Gordon Brastead Trophy.
The Woods looked on the way to turning the form book on the head taking an early lead through Temi Babalola to silence the home fans in a respectable crowd of 128.
