Dunmow FC grab a win thanks to Moss hat trick

DUNMOW got back to winning ways with an emphatic second half performance and a hat trick from Dan Moss, in front of their new shirt sponsors SJ Wright Plumbing and Heating.

After a fairly forgettable first 45 where the home side’s new look centre-back pairing of Chris Taylor and stand-in captain Jamie Smith looked very solid, the game exploded into life in the second half.

Dunmow fell behind almost straight from the restart following a mix up in defence and a cool finish from Maldon St Mary’s striker.

This woke them from their lethargy and, centred around the industry of Nick Green and goal scoring prowess of hat trick hero Dan Moss, Dunmow powered to their second league win of the season.

Dunmow were back on level terms within five minutes of going behind when a powerful break from midfield by Nick Green saw Moss convert his first of with a simple side-foot strike past the despairing keeper.

The home side were then hit by two injuries in two minutes which saw the industrious centre midfielder Alex Byatt and the dangerous Reece Free replaced by Andrew Harvey and Lewis Wellard – Dunmow never looked back.

With Harvey and Green now in total command in midfield, the hosts were able to play their passing brand of football very effectively.
