Essex Senior League: Sporting Bengal United 2 Takeley 2

Sporting Bengal United ended their two-and-a-half week break from Essex Senior League action by claiming a point at home to Takeley in a 2-2 draw.

The clash at the Mile End Stadium had to kick-off late and with the visitors fielding less than 11 players due to a traffic incident at the Blackwall Tunnel.

Steve Carvell helped Bengal make a good start, but high-flying Takeley equalised through Bryn Thorpe.

Frankie Oatham then gave the away side the lead with them heading for three points in east London.

But Oscar Mendes found the net for Bengal to ensure they ended their eight-match losing run in the division.

Manager Imrul Gazi said: “It’s been a long time coming, but I’ll take a point. My Sporting Bengal lads deserved that at the very least, especially in horrible conditions.

“We now have something to build on going into the next two games. All the best to Takeley for the rest of the season.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
