|3||GREAT WAKERING ROVERS||6||+9||13|
Takeley and Basildon United are the early front runners in the ESL title race - both teams have 100% winning records with Takeley playing five games and United playing four games.
Takeley have won every league and cup game they have played so far - they have faced Tower Hamlets and Wivenhoe Town in the Emirates FA Cup where they now face Bostik North side Cheshunt. Stuart Zanone has scored eight goals in the seven games they have played. He has scored goals wherever he has played in his career - he counts The Ambers among one of his former sides so he will be relishing returning to Theobalds Lane and putting in a good performance.
They are closely followed by Great Wakering Rovers, West Essex, FC Romania, Ilford and Barkingside in the table - just six points seperate the top seven.
