Yes, Town go top of the table after a "best goal in seven" win at Debden Kickers whilst early leaders Cranes United were surprisingly held at Ramsden.

Town went behind in the 2nd min after the hosts went ahead following a successful penalty. Town re-grouped and took the game to their opponents and equalised in the 33rd min when Ross Barrett headed in a Joe Corey corner.

The game was level at half-time but Town took the lead in the 50th min when a cross from the left by Gary Morrison was volleyed in by Brogan Wordley. Town extended their lead seven mins later when a corner was forced home from close range by Gary Morrison. Town raced into a 4-1 lead in the 66th min when Gary Morrison latched on to a through ball and dispatched the ball into the hosts net.

Town took their foot of the gas and Debden pulled one back in the 68th min. As the hosts upped their game, Town were forced to defend. The hosts started to live up to their name and several visiting players were left nursing the aftermath of late challenges. A mistake by a limping Town centre-back let Debden in for a goal six mins from time but Town went on the attack for the final period and the goal seldom left the Debden half.

So Town make it three wins on the trot and look forward to the visit of Upminster next week.

Well done to all players and management involved at Basldon Town on going top of the league on Saturday. A great and at times testing start to the season. Lets not now think the jobs done, its only just starting as every game is now a cup final for other teams. Onwards and upwards. :waytogo:

Welcome ooRomanoo and thanks for the kind words. The job has only just started and there's a long way to go. We are playing well at the moment though and I look forward to the return of the players missing through suspension and injury. Let's hope that all the players from yesterday will be fit to face Upminster next Saturday!!

I was just happy to see Joe get 90 minutes of first team football under his belt, for the first time since breaking his kneecap last November. The result was a bonus! :)
