Ladies 7th XI v Southend and Benfleet

Georgia HerronMatch Reports

This week back to the “Beach” a very sandy pitch, but not next to the sea to play Southend and Benfleet joint leaders at the top of the division.

Points lost in this league game despite having been 2-0 up in the first 15 minutes.

Men’s 4th XI v Waltham Forest

Georgia HerronMatch Reports

As perennial league companions to the M4s over the past few seasons Waltham Forest had become somewhat of a nemesis. The past 5 encounters had all resulted in losses or at best hard fought draws for Chelmsford – so after the frost extended Christmas break this was a tough comeback game, made slightly harder by the ridiculously early 10.00am pushback … Read More

Men’s 1st XI v City of Peterborough

Georgia HerronEvents, Match Reports

Chelmsford returned to action after two frozen weeks with defeat to title-chasing Peterborough, a loss which sees them slump back to the bottom of East Premier A.

Men’s 4th XI v. Cheshunt 2nd XI

Georgia HerronMatch Reports

This friendly match was a perfect opportunity to blow away the festive cobwebs and to sharpen the instincts in preparation for the rest of the regular season. On paper the two teams looked a good match, although in different regions both were in equal looking divisions and had equally strong starts to their respective seasons – perfect! The game proved … Read More

Ladies 1s Indoor 2016/17 (Part 1)
