A hat-trick of treble hitters on the road makes it a tough pick to decide who gets the result of the day award from our step five and six sides, while one notable home win also puts a team in the running for honours on National Non-League Day.

Clubs across the country were marking a special day of celebration of non-league football and some of our local sides certainly rose to the task of making it a particularly memorable occasion.

Unfortunately Brantham Athletic aren’t one of those in contention for star result honours as their Thurlow Nunn League premier division trip to Walsham le Willows ended in a 3-0 defeat for the Imps.

And Wivenhoe Town were unable to pick up points in Thurlow Nunn League division one south as the Dragons were beaten 1-0 at the GMP Plant Hire Stadium by visiting Hackney Wick.

However, a trio of sides on the road in division one south all enjoyed tremendous victories.

Coggeshall United have been hitting excellent form in recent weeks and backed up their 4-1 win at Halstead Town in the First Division Knockout Cup in midweek with a 3-1 win in the league at Braintree Town Reserves.

The Weavers set their stall out early with a George Smith strike in the first minute and led 2-0 at half-time thanks to Sam Cripps’ strike on 39 minutes.

Matt Travell then added a third after the break to make sure there was no way back for his former club and a goal on 89 minutes was only a consolation for the Young Irons.

Another side scoring three on the road was Halstead Town, who bounced back from their midweek cup disappointment with a 3-2 win at Harwich & Parkeston.

An entertaining end-to-end game at the Royal Oak saw the Humbugs come away with the points.

After the first half ended goalless, two Tom Cook goals and an opportunist strike from 40 yards by Joe Jones earned the visitors the points.

Harwich kept pushing until the end and strikes from Tyler Rose and Jamie Beecham made sure it was close at the final whistle, but the sending off of Jake Kioussis in the latter stages made it tough for the Shrimpers.

Holland FC were another team hitting the goal trail on their travels and they also found the back of the net three times as they headed to Fire United and also won 3-2.

All of the visiting Thurlow Nunn League victors would be worthy recipients of the result of the day award, however, it is a side playing in the Essex Senior League who get the nod this week.

Stanway Rovers have had a testing start to life in the Senior League, but earned the award with a 2-1 win against Tower Hamlets at the Hawthorns.

Both sides have been struggling and are still in the bottom three in the table, but Rovers’ important win has brought them up on to the heels of the group of teams just above them as they eye a move into a safer position.
