Upminster [M5s] 4 v 5 Witham Academy

Upminster 5s fell to a tight defeat to a youthful and skilful Witham Academy team. Goals from Matthew Tilbury, Lester Farrant,  and Phil Banks gave Upminster a commanding 3-1 lead at half time. Witham took control in the second half scoring twice shortly after the break to level proceedings. Paul Scott’s goal restored Upminster’s lead with minutes to go, however, in spite of the numerous fantastic saves of first time goalkeeper Matt Chapman, two late goals secured the three points for Witham, after a very exciting and fast paced game.
