A Wet Point
Walker At His Best
A rainy afternoon at Chadfields ended with AFC and ‘The Dockers’ producing a goalless draw.
The result was probably the right one as the two sides cancelled each other out, although Paul Walker (pictured) was called in to action on a number of occasions but was equal to them all.
Missing from the AFC line-up was striker Phil Kelly with Jake Clowsley taking his place, while Max Booth had a run out with the Reserves. The second half saw both Joe Wright and Panashe Mundawarara see some action.

With Thanks To Them.
Tilbury and AFC Sudbury played out an entertaining 0-0 draw on a cold and wet Chadfields afternoon.
Tilbury made just a single change to there line up, with Simon Peddie returning from East Thurrock at the heart of the defence.
Both sides had early chances. Ex AFC player Kris Newby from twenty-five yards deflected wide, before Jake Clowsley went close with a header for the visitors on thirteen minutes. Tilbury had the best chances during the remainder of the half. On twenty-one minutes, Kurt Smith crossed onto the head of Adam Vyse and Sudbury keeper Paul Walker made a fantastic save to deny the striker. On forty minutes Toby Aromolaran broke through and his effort towards goal hit the post and fell to the onrushing Kurt Smith who stepped passed his opponent and then crashed his effort off the underside of the bar and away to safety.
Tilbury had another good chance on half time, but again Walker came to the rescue. On fifty minutes Ollie Peters was running down on goal and Clarke Bogard saved well. The game had a quieter period, before Tilbury stepped it up inside the last five minutes. Kris Newby again hit from distance and Walker had to be at his best to tip over. A succession of corners late on saw Sudbury defend well and Newby again hit from distance and just wide. As the game was going into injury time Sudbury substitute Panashe Mundawarara hit just wide with a one on one with Bogard.
