SUFFOLK Under-18s moved three points clear at the top of the table with a convincing 4-1 win against Essex in an East Anglian Counties Championship match at Hadleigh last night.

In the first half visiting goalkeeper Danny Fowler (Billericay), made fine saves from Richard Gammon (Newmarket), and Chris Henderson (Kirkley & Pakefield), before Suffolk went ahead on the stroke of half time. Henderson drove in a low cross-shot which went in off a defender.

Three minutes into the second half Henderson scored with another good shot and then Dale Smith (Lowestoft), made it three after a free kick had not been dealt with by the Essex defence after 58 minutes.

Essex broke their duck in the last minute with a penalty converted by Sam Eldridge (Harwich).
