Essex Senior League: Barking 2 Waltham Forest 1

Barking made it seven straight wins in the Essex Senior League with a 2-1 success at home to Waltham Forest, despite ending the match with 10 men.

The Blues took the lead at Mayesbrook Park after just eight minutes when Ben O’Brien fired in a rebound from close range after an initial shot cannoned back off the post.

On the stroke of half time, the league leaders doubled their advantage when Joe Pearman scored from the spot after a foul in the penalty area by a Forest defender.

Barking, however, saw their lead halved after the interval when Forest hit back with a 30-yard effort through Lee Flynn.

Both teams then had a man dismissed late on as Barking’s Billy Rix and Brian Moses of Forest were given their marching orders.

With no further goals, though, the Blues held on to win and were able to open up a seven-point lead at the top with nearest challengers Hullbridge Sports not in action.

Barking: J Willis; Higgs, S Willis, Taylor, Tarbard; Staunton, Oshin, O’Brien, Pearman; Delgado, Peagram.

Subs: Bricknell, Burgess, Rix, Wackers-Kyriacou, Golby

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
