Brentwood II 0 Clacton 3
Clacton put in a fantastic team performance, with every player winning their personal battles on the pitch, to walk away with all three points and a convincing victory.
The Seasiders got off to a flying start with a goal from the first corner inside two minutes after Jamie Roberts played in Daniel Hunn to open the scoring from close range.

Clacton's attacking formation made life difficult for the home side and when captain Carl Parkes was given the freedom of the circle he made no mistake walking the ball home for 2-0.
The Seasiders played some very nice, controlled, composed, possession hockey, reducing the opponents to a stand still. Neil Hurrell found he had the whole of the left side of the pitch to himself and was able to attack at will from left back. With the same happening down the right the home side struggled to get into the game.

Gavin Underhay had another solid performance, having the confidence to dribble the ball out of defence and play simple passes to set numerous attacks on their way. Peter Wright came off his death bed to make sure Clacton had eleven players and controlled the defence, keeping Mike Key's participation to a minimum.
In midfield Clacton were too strong with Roberts and Hunn dominating the opponents. Up front Rob Lukey, Steven Key, and Ric Coleman ran tirelessly, harassing the home side.
With two minutes to go Clacton put the icing on the cake when Parkes fired the ball into the circle with Lukey waiting to deflect the ball over the prone keeper for 3-0.
Clacton take on Waltham Forest next week at Clacton Leisure Centre (2pm) where a victory will see Clacton finishing in fourth spot.
