Essex Senior League: Woodford Town 5 Southend Manor 0

Woods visit Stansted next Saturday in a game Assistant Manager Neil Day believes will be a big test of where his team stand at this point of the season.
Day said: "Fair to say we've had a hard time of late but this result was a great relief and hopefully gives us a foundation to move on from.
"Stansted away is always tough but if we want to kick on we need to eek out some results on the bounce to stay within some sort of striking distance of the top-we need to go their confident and try impose ourselves on the game-from their anything can happen."
