Chingford Chargers defeated Leigh Celtic in a gripping Final whilst newcomers Redden Raiders netted their first ever Sevens League goal at the Powerleague in Fairlop on Friday 28th May, contributing towards another victory for female participation figures in Essex's five London Boroughs.
The Essex County Football Association's regular competition saw Leigh remaining in the overall driving seat heading into next month's final monthly event but Chingford continue to press, with only three points separating the two. This time the top two teams on points competed in the event's monthly final and Chingford took home the winners' medals for the third month running after an entertaining 3-1 win over leaders Celtic.
This penultimate event continued in the same exciting vain of previous meetings, with nine teams taking part. The 'round robin' games had thrown up a few surprises as well, including a 3-2 win for Shrimperzone over third placed team Women United and newcomers Redden scoring their historic first goal of the league campaign.
Sevens League football was set up after a schedule of ladies' beginners sessions, which aimed to introduce local females to the game, became sufficiently popular to sustain its own small sided competition, which now meets every month. Overall winners are named but at each meeting there is a mini-final between the top two sides on points.
Redden Raiders scooped the Fair Play Award, as voted for by the event's referees, and ECFA Girls & Women's Development Officer for the County's five London Boroughs, Sharon Brownlie, said: "This was again another entertaining evening and it is truly great to see just how far some of the teams have come since joining the league.
"It's great to have new teams such as Redden coming in to keep things fresh and we even have Shrimperzone back with us until they rejoin the Essex County Women's League in September. We're all looking forward to the final event in June and, with past Sevens Leagues having already having been decided before the last meeting, we can now expect an exciting conclusion on the night!"
