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.”

For the past six months, employers and employees have been adapting to ways of working from home. The green light has now been given to many people to go back to offices safely. From flexible hours and staggered starting times to deep cleaning, we’re getting ready for new ways of working.

School’s in for summer – and beyond – with health experts agreeing that pupils safely returning to their studies is “positively” the right thing to do. It’s vital for all children’s welfare, not just in terms of students’ future education but also mental and physical well-being, as well as social interaction of classmates.

The NHS Test and Trace system provides protection for family, friends, colleagues and the community, and is here to keep all of us safe and allow us to enjoy summer safely. We take a look at how the system is working and talk to one member of the thousands of team members about her experiences.
