Rayne Youth 2 Tolleshunt Knight Eagles 3
A week after throwing away the League Cup, Rayne blew a golden opportunity to take a step towards the title. The hosts were superb in the first half, defending solidly and threatening going forward and deservedly lead 2 – 0 at half time thanks to two goals from the excellent Rowan Wallace. Eagles had more possession after the break, but Rayne defended well and never really looked like conceding while being dangerous on the break. However, with fifteen minutes remaining Rayne gifted a soft goal and just fell to pieces to somehow lose the game in a manner that was difficult to believe. Marios Loci and Charlie Foskett played well as did the whole squad for 65 minutes before really letting themselves down in the closing stages.
