1 - 2
Clapton FC 1 Sawbridgeworth Town 2
Clapton were edged out by the Robins, who moved up to third place in the table with this victory.
The home side just about had the edge in terms of possession in the first half, in front of a crowd of 317, but Sawbo created the better chances and took the lead on 35 minutes when Lewis Ball struck.
George Wappett doubled Sawbo’s advantage when finishing off a well-worked move and, although Warren Mfula hit back to halve the deficit, Tons could not get back on terms and were reduced to 10 men late on.
Michael Walter’s men remain in eighth place and are set to welcome Wadham Lodge next weekend.
Clapton FC: Diagne, Barry, Abdul, Bogdan, Moore, Ocran, Haines, Oshin, Makuna, Cook, Aylett. Subs: Webb, Mfula, Creed, Haighton.
