Essex Senior League: Tower Hamlets 0 Walthamstow 2

Early second half strikes from Walthamstow’s Craig Pope and Matt Brinklow dealt Tower Hamlets their second home defeat in a week at the Mile End Stadium.

The home side had lost at home to Enfield on Monday night but prior to that had beaten Sawbridgeworth Town in the cup before pulling off a stunning win at Stansted in the league last weekend, whilst for Walthamstow they suffered a rare defeat at home to Woodford Town last time out.

Both sides went into the half-time with a 0-0 score line.

Stow began the second half as they started the first and three minutes into it they got their noses in front when a ball to the far post eventually dropped to Pope who stretched to send an effort beyond Stanbury.

And just five minutes later Stow doubled their advantage when Brinklow shifted onto his left foot before firing a brilliant effort from outside the box into the top corner giving Stanbury no chance at all and the visitors suddenly had a two-goal cushion to savour.

Tower Hamlets will now host local rivals Clapton at the Mile End Stadium on Friday evening.
