Two out of three for Garon Park 50s

Garon Park Walking Football Club over 50s’ section won two of their three matches in the latest round of fixtures staged at Melbourne Park, Chelmsford.

The Southend-based side didn’t get off to the best of starts, skipping to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Billericay Town Blues.

Town led 2-0 early in the second half and despite a penalty from Mike Allpress, Garon was unable to retrieve the situation.

Paul Holloway bagged a brace while Neil Oriordan was also on target as Garon raced into a three-goal lead against Billericay Town Whites. However, they had to stand firm in the face of some late pressure after the New Lodge outfit reduced the arrears to 3-2.

A straightforward 2-0 triumph over Beacon Hill Rovers concluded their latest sequence – Holloway and Al Bradley on target. Garon Park moves up to tenth in the Essex Walking Football League table as a result.
