BRIGHTLINGSEA REGENT were unable to provide a victory as a birthday present for boss Kem Izzet after they were beaten 2-1 at leaders Bowers and Pitsea.

Former Colchester United midfielder Izzet, who was 39 on Tuesday, saw his R's side go 2-0 down to the Pitching In Isthmian League Premier leaders.

And although Morisi Gelashvili bagged a late goal, it was not enough for them to salvage anything from the game.

WITHAM TOWN'S Pitching In Isthmian League division one north game at Bury Town was abandoned, on Tuesday night.

Marc Benterman’s side were trailing 5-0 when the referee called the match off in the 83rd minutes, due to fog at Ram Meadow.

Town looked like they would be heading for another defeat, following their 7-0 loss at the hands of Hullbridge Sports in their division one north opener.

The fog had got worse in the second half and after talking to his assistant, the referee called over both managers before abandoning the game, much to the hosts’ anger.

A crowd of 400 had watched the game at Ram Meadow.

STANWAY ROVERS chalked up their first league win of the Thurlow Nunn League premier division season after winning 4-0 at Haverhill Rovers.

LITTLE OAKLEY were 3-2 winners over HALSTEAD TOWN at the Milbank Stadium, in division one south.

The visitors came out on top with a 3-2 win after going behind twice.

Halstead opened the scoring when Brad Amos slotted home via a through ball from Joe Jones.

This resulted in an immediate reaction from the away side, with Harry Mann levelling for the visitors with a powerful shot into the top right-hand corner.

Halstead then came forward again to retain the lead when Chris Harris received the ball from a crossbar smash and directed his acute-angled shot into the far post.

But when the second half commenced, Oakley immediately levelled the scoring again with a strike from Greg Rodger.

Harry Mann then got on the scoresheet again to complete the comeback for Oakley, subsequently winning them the game.
