Saffron Walden Town Reserves maintained top spot in the Thurlow Nunn Reserve Division One after beating their counterparts from Wivenhoe Town 2-0 away from home.

Walden’s title charge was helped by the referee, who delayed kick-off by 15 minutes to allow the entire team to work their way through the traffic and make it to the ground.

The Bloods were hindered by unavailability and had to call-up 16-year-old goalkeeper Sam Soultar and Ben Morrall.

Neither did their stock any harm, though, as they played their part in the three points returning to Catons Lane.

Soultar kept a clean sheet against a dangerous looking Wivenhoe attack while Morrall got on the scoresheet in the second half after he turned a defender and beat the goalkeeper.

The game was made safe five minutes from time when Matt Snelling found the net.
