Old Boys routed by rampant Rayleigh

Old Southendian v Rayleigh Town – Essex Olympian League Premier Division – Garon Park – Report

Old Southendian 0-7 Rayleigh Town

Old Southendian boss, Altan Ali provided an honest assessment after witnessing his sides’ seven-goal Essex Olympian League Premier Division thrashing at the hands of an impressive Rayleigh Town side at Garon Park.

The visitors dominated in every department, with Harry Talbot scoring four times, while Liam Oliver chipped in with a hat-trick.

“We were completely outclassed from start to finish,” Ali told Yellow Sport.

“I’m extremely disappointed. The game plan was wrong. There’s not much more I can add to that.”

Rayleigh Town remains in fourth place – six points shy of leaders, Basildon Town. The result left the Old Boys in eighth place. Ali will demand a response when Leigh Ramblers visit Garon Park for an Essex Olympian League Premier Division encounter, next Saturday, December 11 (2:30pm).
