Havering women's 2nd XI


Another double-header for Havering

East Premier A

Havering v Cambridge Uni; Havering v Bedford

Following last weekend’s away-day double at Bishop’s Stortford and Chelmsford, Havering come home to Campion for another two-game test.

Murray Yeoman’s last-gasp strike sealed a 2-1 win at Stortford and he was on the mark again as Havering built a 4-0 lead at Chelmsford.

The hosts hit back with three unanswered goals to set up a tense finale, but Havering held on for the points to move up to fourth.

Another double this weekend could see Havering climb up to second.

Division 1

Felixstowe v Upminster

Three successive defeats have seen Upminster slip down the table.

And Nick Payne’s face the long trip to the Suffolk coast looking nervously over their shoulders at the bottom three.

They edged to a 2-1 win when the sides met at Coopers in October and would love to complete the double to ease jangling nerves.

Division 4SE

Romford v Witham II

Buoyed by a 5-0 derby win over Upminster 3rds, Romford host mid-table rivals at Robert Clack.

Tom Edwards netted four times in last weekend’s romp, while Witham fell to a 2-1 home defeat against Brentwood 3rds.

And Romford will hope to set the record straight after losing 5-3 at Witham in October, to leapfrog their opponents.

Women’s East Division 2SW

Havering v Letchworth

First meets second at Campion, as unbeaten Havering host their nearest rivals.

Amy Chrisp netted a hat-trick in last weekend’s 6-1 win over Hertford, as Havering extended their unbeaten record to 16 games.

Letchworth celebrated a 6-1 win of their own at Potters Bar, but remain five points back and will need a big effort to cut that gap.
