Match Report by Tony Middleton

On a fine mild night, with the temperature just dropping below zero, the start was delayed 13 minutes due to the late arrival of one of the visiting team. Redbridge fielded a very strong team, and included three ex-Urchins in Richard Wray, Sam Holloway and the ever popular Andy Tomlinson. Urchins responded accordingly with their best Capital League performance to date. The early play confined to midfield, due largely to two very tight defences, and it was some time before either side was able to threaten, although a corner from the left was narrowly headed over the bar by Noakes. Hornchurch themselves moved forward confidently and created several scoring opportunities, the best of which fell to Danny Gill, who ran past Ashman and drew Wray off his line before chipping the ball over the keeper’s head. Wray did very well to dart back and gather the ball as it rolled goalwards.

Redbridge could have opened the scoring shortly afterwards, when a well flighted corner from the left was met by Holloway, whose header was directly narrowly wide of the goal. Springer was frequently in the action in the middle of the field, but was caught in possession on more than one occasion, although his shot on the turn had Wray diving across goal to turn the ball around the post, with Everett’s corner eluding everyone in a crowded goalmouth. A long upfield kick by Madden found Everett whose lengthy run took him deep into the Redbridge half, before he played the ball out to Williamson on the right, with Holloway racing across to tackle.

The final chance of the half fell to Springer whose run took him past two defenders, with the third defender, Junior Ashman, conceding a corner with a timely tackle. The floodlight, which had for once behaved itself and stayed on, went out as the teams returned to the field for the second half, and as the temperature dropped slightly, so the frost began to whiten the grass, though the playing surface remained soft. The only goal of the match came when Charlie Bull had set Springer up well with a neat pass inside, but Springer’s solo run was thwarted by Dauti, and the ball was played quickly upfield, where BRETT KINNINMONT, with the home defence still coming back, was able to run on, and drive the ball low past Madden for the only goal of the match. Darryl Plummer came on and was a constant threat to the home defence, although Redbridge’s shooting was wide of the mark, apart from one hard drive which cannoned back off the bar.

Bradley Kite went close with a well placed shot, and Springer again went through the middle but was crowded out, and it was Springer who had the final opportunity, when he broke through and lofted the ball over Wray, but also over the bar.
