Whitton United 3 Brightlingsea 0

AN even opening period saw little good football played.

On 51 minutes Hurd shrugged off two defenders to place his shot wide of Percival. Hurd's pace had caused problems to the Brightlingsea defence and he took advantage after Gayfer's header had been scrambled clear amid calls for a penalty and the young striker smashed the loose ball into the roof of the net.

Hubbert pulled off a blinding save as Tony Chatters had run clear but Whitton recovered and Terry Layton capped off the scoring with a glorious floated shot into the top corner.
