Garon Park display resolve despite dropped points

Three clean sheets from as many tough fixtures proved a decent return for Garon Park Walking Football Club’s over 60s side following the latest round of Essex Walking Football League matches.

Danny Spencer provided the decisive moment as Chelmsford City Blues were beaten by a goal to nil in a tight contest. And another hard-fought encounter saw the Southend-based side held to a goalless draw by Little Oakley, despite creating a series of decent chances.

Garon Park might well have believed it was a case of two points dropped as opposed to one gained from that particular outing. Nevertheless, against Wakering Blacks – one of the teams to beat – Garon produced a decent performance, playing their part to the full in another tough and ultimately goalless clash with the high-flying villagers.

Wakering tired during the match – their third in a row – but Garon Park were unable to take advantage.

Spencer had Garon’s best chances, while goalkeeper, Michael Orme was called upon to make a couple of smart saves, keeping the contest all-square.

Garon Park occupy second place in the table, three points behind Wakering and one ahead of Norwich City in third who have two games in hand.
