Match Reports

Colchester H4L A                   2-0                   Robbie, Harry

It had ended up goalless in April, and Colchester were also missing some players. Colchester nearly took the lead, but a vital save by Kyle prevented the ball from fully crossing the line. Robbie then took the lead for Clacton, with Harry getting a second to seal the victory soon after.

Porters A                                1-2                   Robbie

Clacton were unbeaten against Porters this season, drawing the game in November and winning the rest. In April Clacton had borrowed a player from Porters B to help squad numbers but had decided against it this time round. However, they were unable to stop Porters coach Nigel from selecting 2 players from his squad to join Clacton A to make it 7v7. Clacton opened the scoring but towards the end of the game Porters equalised and found a late winner. This seriously angered Clacton as they never wanted the players from Porters.

Disability 4 Sport A               2-1                   Robbie x2

After losing to Porters Clacton refused to let the Porters players play for them again. This did mean that they would have a squad disadvantage and the referee did check with them that they were happy to play that way, and they were. Sure enough though, they then fell behind to 7 man D4S. However, in less than a minute Robbie had found an equaliser for Clacton. Later on Robbie found a second to turn Clacton from being 1-0 down to going 2-1 up. Clacton were delighted with the result, as D4S had 2 players more than them.

Tendring Mental Health                   1-3                   Greg

Tendring had put on a disastrous performance in April, coming out bottom with a 0-0 draw against Clacton. However, this time it was a lot different. Tendring came out top in the tournament and soon took the lead against Clacton. It wasn't long before Clacton were losing 3-0. Greg scored a late consolation for Clacton.
