Essex One leaders won 33-0 at Millwall last weekend

May & Baker captain Andy Yarrow was pleased with Saturday’s comprehensive Essex One victory against Millwall, and in particular their first half display.

Josh Cook, Joe Jones, Jay Walsh, Marc Tindall and Yarrow all crossed over in the routine win.

Four of the five tries came in the opening 40 minutes, much to the delight of the Bakers captain.

The league leaders were forced to defend more in the second period as they changed their game plan, but they still secured an emphatic victory.

“Four of our tries came in the first half and it was a dominant performance in the first period,” said Yarrow.

“It was an especially dominant display from the forwards. They really stuck to the game plan well.

“Second half we changed our approach a little bit and we did a lot of kicking, which I don’t like too much.

“So we had to defend for a lot of the half, but it got us the win so we can’t complain.”

It was also revealed last week that Bakers will host Surrey One outfit Chipstead in the quarter-finals of the National Junior Vase on January 24.

Chipstead haven’t won in the league this season and are bottom of their division, Yarrow admits he is pleased with the draw.

“We have been drawn at home to Chipstead in the quarter-finals of the Junior Vase,” he revealed.

“We are happy with that and we couldn’t have asked for a better draw. The icing on the cake is we are at home.

“We are happy, but a lot of the big teams have been drawn apart which is a bit of a shame so you can kind of predict who will make it through to the semi-finals.”
