Upminster’s 5’s registered their first win of the Season with a breathtaking 5-4 victory in Saffron Walden. An early goal from the hosts was cancelled out by a quick double from Lester Farrant and Paul Scott, only for a deflected strike to draw Walden level. Walden then retook the lead after indecision in the Upminster defence and went into the break ahead.
However, Upminster upped the tempo considerably in the second half, and a goal from John Dunnett levelled proceedings. Although, Walden took the lead again, Paul Scott proceeded to claim his hat trick, including displaying some exceptional goalline tenacity, to secure the win. The 5s will be looking to build on this victory this weekend as they entertain Brentwood Academy at Coopers this Saturday.
