Barking earned another victory in the Essex Senior League on Saturday as goals from James Barlow and Ryan Creed sealed a comfortable 3-0 win over Sporting Bengal United.

Barlow opened the scoring after 22 minutes before Creed bagged his first on the hour mark before adding another ten minutes from time.

Manager Mick O’Shea was happy with the win but is still demanding more goals from his side.

He also revealed that he has signed Barkingside’s Andy Edmunds and Billy Reynolds recently to add to the strength of the squad.

“We had a good crowd of 60 on Saturday and hopefully a few more tomorrow when we face Chelmsford in the Essex Senior Cup.

“It could have been another three or four at the weekend and realistically we could have scored five or six and that would have been good for our goal difference.

“We had a young strikeforce with Ryan Creedy up front with Andy Edmunds, who we have got from Barkingside.

“I still want more goals and I always want more goals because you look at the teams above and if it comes down to it at the end of the season we have a negative goal difference compared to them.”

O’Shea discussed the strength of his squad as well as they continue their unbeaten start to the league campaign and made it six wins out of nine.

He added: “Sipho Mtyanda is on the bench and he is a talented lad from Maldon. He come on and set two goals up.

“I have signed another lad this week Billy Reynolds, he got a run out and will be a good signing.

“We have such a strong squad. The bench was full of Jay Taylor and Peter Moore and they are experienced players.”
