High Easter’s first adventure into the Essex Sunday Junior Trophy ended in a 5-2 defeat at Haver Town.
Played at the Wickford Memorial Playing Fields, they were up against a side from Division Three of the Brentwood Sunday League and despite the score it was a competitive fixture.
The hosts started quickly and were 2-0 up inside the first 10 minutes, Reece Martin and Ben Kendall the scorers, but High Easter pulled a goal back midway through the half from free-kick specialist Andy Reed.
Barry Carliel restored Haver’s two-goal advantage just before half-time and it was four early in the second period thanks to Jake Piper.
High Easter were still working hard and pulled a goal back when a clearance from defence put Jack Shaw away and he finished with a neat lob.
