Essex Senior League: Newham 5 Basildon United 2

A clinical display from Newham sent Zakir Hussain’s side into fifth place in the Essex Senior League after a 5-2 win over Basildon United last night.

Daniel Crowie was the pick of the bunch with two assists and a goal to his name, while Vlad Sighiartau, Paul Oshin and Jack Sawyer all scored for the second game running, while Brodie Newbery scored on his debut to give Newham all three points.

Newham got off to a flying start for the second game in a row and it was Sighiartau with the opener.

Crowie picked up the ball and played in Sighiartau who skipped past two defenders and smashed the ball in low from 20 yards.

Crowie would make it 2-0 just minutes later with a free header from Ross Quinton’s beautifully delivered free-kick.

Basildon clawed their way back into the game and had a few chances but most efforts were comfortable for Mark Richardson to deal with.

Quinton had the chance to make it three just before the break but after lobbing Basildon keeper Russell Harley, his effort bounced in the six-yard box and went just over.

The visitors came out flying in the second half and were rewarded with an early goal. Richardson made a fantastic save from a corner but the rebound was pounced on by Lorenzo Ramsey to tuck away.

Newham regained their two-goal lead just moments later though as another pinpoint Quinton free-kick was met by a free header, with Paul Oshin applying the finishing touch.

Sighiartau almost scored to make it 4-1 another minute later after another beautiful delivery from Quinton but Harley reacted excellently to save.

A fourth goal did come though and Sighiartau this time turned supplier as his driven ball made its way to Sawyer after some poor defending and he took a couple of touches before driving a shot beyond Harley on the 70th minute.

Arguably Newham saved the best goal until last and it came with five minutes to go. David Taylor picked up the ball from Dan Jolley’s clearing header and played the ball to Vendel Nunes.

Nunes hooked an inch perfect through ball onto Crowie who took two big touches to race away from his marker and lay the perfect cross for debutant Newbury to slot into an empty net.

It would have been a perfect way to end the game but the scoreline was soured for Newham with some slack defending towards the end. Richardson pulled off a glorious save from Ryan Jenkins which proved a warning before George Whitby’s late consolation goal.

It’s been an excellent run of form for Newham who have now won seven of their last 10 matches and go into two key games against Eton Manor.

Newham: Richardson, Taylor, Clarke, Ladega, Kilron (Jolley 70), Oshin, Sawyer, Crowie, Quinton (Newbury 75), Nunes, Sighiartau (Agdelen 80)

Unused substitutes: Villota, Jaffa
