High Easter made a winning return to action in the Chelmsford Sunday Football League after a week off - beating Latchingdon away.

The Championship Group C fixture was played at Burnham Ramblers and ended with Easter winning 3-2 in a typical game of two halves. 

A slight breeze gave the visitors the advantage in the first period, as they reached half-time two goals to the good.

Ryan Kirk got the first inside two minutes and he then turned provider to give Alfie Prior the second.

But Latchingdon came storming out of the blocks after the interval and were soon level after goals from Carl Swanborough and David Dance.

At this stage, either side could have won the game with High Easter's Henry French hitting the post from a free-kick and Latchingdon skimming the crossbar direct from a corner.

But after surviving a huge amount of pressure, High Easter broke down the left and a cross from French was headed home by Kirk for a 3-2 win.

It means High Easter finish third in the group and now move up to the Premier Division for the rest of the season.

They open the second part of their campaign with two tough home games, the first against March Priory Sports on Sunday before Atletico Maldon make the trip on March 12.
