Monday 27th August
BOSTIK LEAGUE DIVISION ONE NORTH
BRENTWOOD TOWN 1 – 0 BARKING
Brentwood’s first home league match of the season saw them earn a welcome first win of the season. The two sides went into the game joint bottom of Bostik North, although this was only Brentwood’s second league outing, and it was a close affair.
Barking looked the better side until Blues took a 27th minute lead. Mitch Hunter won a header from a corner and Connor Martin applied the finishing touch from close range.
Zack Littlejohn made a promising debut at the heart of the Brentwood defence and Sam Carter impressed in midfield after coming on as a substitute early in the second half.
Brentwood Town: Budd, Gardner, Hunter, Littlejohn, Mallett, Martin, Foster (Joseph 59), Cuthbert (Carter 55), Coley (Doyle 71), Hilton, Levett.
