COULD OF LOST, COULD OF WON, SHOULD OF LOST, SHOULD OF WON!

With thanks to 'Andyetfc' who posts on the Not the ETFC forum for the above headline which I think sums up the game for both sides this afternoon. It was a much improved performance from the Town against a visiting Needham Market side who are sure to be involved in the title race as they were last season.  The highlights are below including all four goals that were scored -

Elsewhere, Grays Athletic continued their good start to the season with a 0-2 victory at Chatham Town. Harry Agombar netted both goals for the current table toppers who are closely followed by Waltham Forest who are amazingly 46% of the way to beating their points total from last season (26).

The Stags came from 0-2 down against Maldon and Tiptree to win 3-2 at Cricklefields this afternoon in a match where both teams finished with 10 men. Harlow Town, Town's midweek opponents, recorded a great win at AFC Sudbury. The Hawks were 1-0 down but come back to gain the three points via ex Towner Lee Marshall and a Rhys Henry goal deep into injury time.

Another ex Towner, Dave Bastian, was sent off for Ware in their 1-2 home defeat at home to Thamesmead Town. Ware, Ilford and Maldon & Tiptree are the three sides without a win at present with Grays Athletic and Heybridge Swifts the only unbeaten sides left.
