Josh Dawkin making moves on his road to recovery

22 long months have passed since Josh suffered his horror tibia and fibula break away to Chippenham on the final day of the season.

It’s been a long road to recovery for the attacking midfielder and we are delighted to bring some good news.

Josh has been increasing his rehab since pre season and has now been in full contact training since just before Christmas. Josh and club physio Jess have made the decision the next step is to now get game time.

Josh is expected to sign on a dual registration with Soham Town Rangers where he will spend the rest of the season increasing his fitness with an aim of returning for pre season fit and ready to join the squad next season.

From everyone at the club we would like to wish Josh all the best of luck in this next chapter and look forward to having him and his goals back next season.

Sunday 27 January

The Ladies 1st team won a hard fought encounter 1-0 in tricky conditions at Hatfield Peverel in the ERWFL D1. A Georgia Stancombe penalty in the 1st half was enough to claim all 3 points. Emily Smith was awarded ‘Player of the Match’. The Ladies currently sit in 2nd place on 31 points, just 1 point behind Bowers & Pitsea, but with a game in hand.

The Ladies Development side miss out on the knockout stages of Cambridgeshire  League Cup as they were beaten 1-4 at Cambridge City Development in Group C. The Ladies Development finished the group on 9 points, level with Riverside and Cambridge Rangers. However, it is Riverside who progress along with Cambridge City to the quarter final stage courtesy of a better goal difference.

The U15’s played a very skilful Walsham Le Willows in the EJA Green Division and came away with a 2-1 victory following a very mature display with goals from Connor and Harry.

The U14’s followed up on their maiden league win last week with another victory over Leiston, this time winning 4-0 in the EJA Green Division.

The U13’s put in a great performance against Plantation Youth in the Royston Crow League, coming from 0-1 down to win 4-1. A Hat trick from captain George Shepherd and a goal from Charlie Sellick sealed the points to take them top of the league with 4 games left to play.
