Clapton Community FC’s men kicked off 2020 with a 2-2 draw away to Middlesex League Premier Division leaders Brentham FC.

They dominated the first half and had one goal chalked off for a push in the build-up but Sherwin Stanley did put the visitors in front just before the break.

The experienced striker slid a penalty down the middle, following a foul on midfielder Paul Oshin.
