Cray Wanderers 2 Leiston 2
A tremendous stoppage time strike from Stuart Boardley earned the Blues a point at bottom club Cray Wanderers. Trailing by two goals at the break Adam Tann scrambled home our opener and after Craig Parker blazed over a 90th minute penalty, Stuart Boardley struck to claim a point.
The Blues are pleased to announce that popular striker Emmanuel Osei has returned to Victory Road after a deal was agreed between the Blues and Lowestoft Town. The lively front man arrived previously at Victory Road in September 2012 and scored 10 goals from 34 League appearances before departing in May 2013 to join Met Police.
Due to the speed of the deal taking place, the paperwork was only confirmed minutes before this afternoon's deadline to enable Emmanuel to go straight into tonight's squad for the trip to Cray Wanderers.
A warm return to 'Manny' from all at Victory Road.
AFC Hornchurch 4 Leiston 2
The Blues unbeaten run of 2014 was ended at Bridge Road despite a spirited display. The difference was the Urchins strike force of Payne and Purcell who netted three of the home goals. Leon Ottley-Gooch and Rhys Henry were on target for the Blues who deserved more for their efforts.
