UNBEATEN CLARETS CLINCH THE OVER 60’s LEAGUE TITLE WITH 3 GAMES TO GO!!
26th Septermber 2018 Leyton Orient

On a warm, sunny September morning in Walthamstow hosted by Leyton Orient, the unbeaten league leaders Chelmsford City Clarets won their 3 league matches and extended their record for the season to played 17, won 16, drawn 1. With their nearest challengers for the title now being 11 points behind and with only 3 games remaining, the Clarets are now uncatchable at the top of the league

Clarets squad: Mark Elnaugh (GK), George Keogh, Jim Prophet, Spencer Pratten, Colin Haydon, Terry Buck, Peter Osborne (C).

Results:-
Chelmsford Clarets 1 : 0 Eastwood Falcons Blues
This was an unconvincing start by Clarets as they were unable to convert any of the many chances that they created throughout the game. While Mark was relatively untroubled in goal, the Blues keeper was proving difficult to beat until a powerful shot by Spencer from a tight angle with only two minutes remaining proved to be the winner.

Chelmsford Clarets 2 : 0 Leyton Orient
The scoreline did not fully reflect the closeness of this match as both teams had chances during a hard fought encounter. Clarets took an early lead with another fine shot by Spencer. George & Jim in defence held firm against increasing pressure, with Mark being called upon to make a couple of fine saves.

A penalty shout for Clarets was turned down by the referee after the O’s keeper appeared to play the ball outside the area but shortly afterwards Terry played a fine ball to Spencer whose pass was converted by Peter to secure the win

Chelmsford Clarets 5 : 0 Grays
After being made to work really hard during the first two games, Clarets managed a comfortable win against Grays with a well taken hat-trick by Peter sandwiched between two goals by Spencer. At one point midway through the game Clarets were left with only three outfield players after Terry was given a 2 minute sin bin blue card for raising a boot in a challenge, and then almost immediately after Peter was awarded the same sanction for committing three ‘running’ offences.

Chelmsford Clarets 1 : 0 Eastwood Falcons Yellows (Friendly)
Both teams were feeling the effects of 3 league matches in the late September heat but despite this they both engaged fully in a tussle that was won by Clarets with a fine strike by strike by Spencer midway through the friendly.

Once more Clarets managed to come through the tournament unbeaten and with their goal intact. After a slightly shaky start they found the way to overcome the opposition. With Mark in goal stopping everything, George, Jim & Colin provided the solid defensive base to allow Peter, Terry & Spencer to wear down each of our opponents in turn. With three games remaining Clarets will now be determined to complete the season as unbeaten champions!!
