Blacks played Billericay in match 2 and run out 1-0 winners through a brilliant assist from Gary Jackson to set up Paul Tregent. The scoreline does not reflect the game which but for exceptional saves of the Billericay’s keeper, would have been a trouncing.
Blacks final game saw them camped in Chelmsford Blues half for the entire game. Paul Tregent netted 4 and Andrew Douglas netted 2 to see Wakering to a 6-0 victory and lift then into second in the table.
