Upminster [M5s] 1 v 2 Old Southendian [M5s]

Upminster 5s fell to a slender defeat to Old Southendian 5s at Coopers yesterday, with some inspired visitor defending ensuring their victory. An early goal from the evergreen Lester Farrant was just reward for early Upminster pressure, however, two goals on the break, either side of half time proved the difference for a strong Old Southendian team. Notwithstanding the defeat, the U’s are in buoyant mood after the game, as a result of the excellent skills shown by regular Man of the Match recipient, Aiden Hewitt, and the incredible tackling and courage shown by debutant centre-back Teerath Sanghera who at the tender age of 14 demonstrated a capability well beyond his years.
MoM: Hewitt
