Latest news from the Essex Senior League

Sporting Bengal 1 Tower Hamlets 2

Tower Hamlets came from behind to snatch the derby spoils in a dramatic finish at Mile End Stadium.

Kadir Jama gave Sporting Bengal the lead in the first half and the hosts, who claimed their first win of the season at Greenhouse in midweek thanks to an Aaron Hutchings goal, had a great chance to double their advantage when awarded a penalty, but it was saved.

Other chances went begging in the second half before Luke With got Hamlets back on level terms.

Then, when it looked like honours would finish even between the co-tenants, Abdisamad Mohamed popped up with a winner for AJ Olatunbosun’s men, who visit Clapton in the league cup on Tuesday before Sporting host FC Romania in the league the following night.


Enfield 2 Clapton 2

The spoils were shared at Harlow’s Barrow Farm after an entertaining clash.

Tons travelled in high spirits, following their 1-0 win at Ilford in midweek, where Geoffrey Ocran’s 77th-minute goal sealed the points.

But Akitide put Enfield ahead midway through the first half, before Tons levelled on the hour as Jerry Jariette struck.

Tons took the lead on 70 minutes but their joy was shortlived as Williams hit back for the hosts two minutes later to ensure both sides took a point.


London Bari 2 Waltham Forest 3

Bari were left empty-handed as Forest made it back-to-back wins at the Old Spotted Dog.

The visitors took a fifth-minute lead with a deflected Traore effort but Bari got back on terms before the half-hour mark when the ball was bundled home.

Forest regained their advantage two minutes later when Ogunleye headed in Ogori’s corner and Agua fired into the corner to make it 3-1 before the break.

Bari had a great chance to cut the gap right on half time when awarded a penalty but Seyer pushed the spot-kick onto a post.

And although the hosts grabbed a second goal after the restart, Forest held on for the points.


Newham 0 Southend Manor 3 (at Southend Manor)

Newham had to travel to Southend to play a ‘home’ fixture, with the Terence McMillan Stadium still not ready for them to play fixtures there.

And after Tanimowo missed a great chance for Manor inside the opening seconds, Newham fell behind on two minutes when an unmarked Christian Hurley fired past Adam Richardson.

Quinton fired a good chance to level over, but Manor had more chances to add to their early lead before the break.

Dixon headed against the crossbar for Newham in the second half, before Manor went 2-0 up on 53 minutes as Aaron Baldwin fired home from the penalty spot.

Newham had penalty claims of their own waved away soon after, while Richardson tipped Tanimowo’s drive onto the crossbar at the other end.

And Manor completed their tally five minutes from time when Tanimowo ran into the box and slipped the ball under Richardson.
