Dunmow FC suffer revenge defeat
REVENGE was served cold for Dunmow FC on Saturday as E2V stormed to a comfortable 3-1 win.
Dunmow had dumped their opponents out of the league cup two weeks ago but they were soundly beaten on Saturday afternoon.
The away team were hampered by losing two key players to traffic on the M25 half an hour before kick off and played the game with a bare 11 including a debut for new boy Max Rendell.
E2V certainly had revenge on their minds and came at Dunmow from the off showing some excellent passing and movement off the ball.
Dunmow, unusually, couldn’t get into their stride and all too many times were not passing accurately enough. This meant the defence was consistently under pressure.
With half an hour gone the visitors defence finally cracked.
A quick break from an E2V midfield saw their striker break into Dunmow’s box, a despairing tackle from behind from Ben Jolly brought the E2V striker to the ground and the ref had no option but to award a penalty. Keeper Boreham was sent the wrong way to give E2V a half time 1-0 lead.

Dunmow could not shake off their lethargy in the second half and found themselves 3-0 behind with 20 minutes to go. They did finish strongly however and only a high quality interception prevented Jamie Smith from scoring.
Dunmow were to get on the scoreboard though with 10 minutes to go through a penalty awarded for handball in the E2V defence. Jamie Smith stepped up and converted the penalty – although it hit both posts before going in.
Dunmow are at home at the Recreation Ground this Saturday facing Malden St Mary’s in a 2pm kick off.
