National League Round-up: New Year’s Day

A Will Wright free-kick rescued a point for Dagenham & Redbridge five minutes from the end of their National League game at fellow strugglers Ebbsfleet United, the Kent side having led for most of the match thanks to a sixth minute goal from Alex Reid.

The Daggers were beginning life after Peter Taylor, the veteran manager having parted company with the club after last weekend’s 3-0 defeat away to Bromley and this match saw his former assistants Jody Brown and Terry Harris in charge of the team for the first time.

Despite the 1-1 draw Dagenham dropped to 20th place in the standings, two points clear of 21st placed AFC Fylde.

In the National League South Chelmsford City secured a quick league double over local rivals Braintree Town.

The two sides had met on Boxing Day at Melbourne Park when City had triumphed 4-1.

This time in the return fixture at Cressing Road, Rod Stringer’s side didn’t find the net as often but the odd goal in three proved enough to take all three points.

A goalless first half was overshadowed by a collision between Clarets’ Laurie Walker and home striker Alfie Cerulli.

Walker came off the worse of the two, the on-loan MK Dons goalkeeper having to be stretchered from the field but Cerulli was also unable to continue and so was substituted by Iron manager George Borg.

Chelmsford took the lead just seconds from the restart thanks to a Tom Knowles header.

The hosts levelled via Rhys Murrell-Williamson with 20 minutes left to play before City were awarded a penalty in the 79th minute, which was put away by leading scorer Shaun Jeffers to secure a 2-1 win for his side.

The win nudged the Clarets back into the top half in 11th place, whilst another defeat for Braintree sees them drop another place to 15th.

The other National League South Essex derby between Billericay Town and Concord Rangers was postponed, as not for the first time recently the New Lodge pitch was deemed to be unplayable.

Other results meant that Billericay dropped to 17th place in the league, although Jamie O’Hara’s men have games in hand on all the sides around them in the table.

The Beach Boys fell a couple of places to 9th.
