Epping Win first game at their new Home

Thanks to Dan Hills for the Fantastic picures 

103 people enjoyed a sunny afternoon at Epping Upper Clapton Rugby club with Epping running out 2-0 winners in a close game against Hullbridge Sports ‘A’ in the Essex Senior Cup, 

With the Sun out and a strong breeze blowing, Epping started there new era with a strong win against youthful and energetic  Hullbridge Sports ‘A’, Epping edged the opening exchanges with some pleasing passing and soon found there feet at the new venue, Hullbridge had some decent chances to take the lead but did trouble impressive keeper Skingley, Epping broke the deadlock on 24 mins when Charlie Pollard pounced on a loose ball in the box to fire it home, Epping continued to dominate possession limiting Hullbridge to only half chances.

Half Time the Spectators made them selves familiar with the new facility’s and enjoyed the view from the balcony in the modern, spacious and well equipped clubhouse, including a bar that was staffed and well stocked, anyone coming to Epping games for the last couple of decades will understand how much of a change this is.    

with the second half underway Callum Turner showed some touches of class to retain and control possession and would been fitting for him to score but his header rattled the bar, Epping’s second came with some good passing and a great run by substitute Charlie Avent showing blistering pace and he laid the ball of for Chris Gormley for a smart finish in the top right hand corner, Epping could have had a couple of more but 2-0 was a fair reflection of the match and we go on to the second round of the Senior Cup (date to be announced)

The Reserve team started of there season with an away fixture at Collier Row Reserves, unfortunately running out 7-3 losers they now play in the Reserve Cup next week at home Vs Runwell FC 14:15 Kick Off, with the 1st team taking the journey to Rochford to start their league campaign

Management Team in place

Epping Town Football Club is Delighted to announce that 1st XI Management team is in place for the 2020/21 season with Stuart Hoskins keeping the reins as Manager he and the club where overwhelmed with the interest in the advertised 1st XI positions and we are happy to have David Limber as Assistant Manager from White Ensign & Sean Aitchison as First Team Coach from Ilford FC both bring experience and enthusiasm to the club and will help push the club, along with Stuart on to great things in the future once we are allowed to play football again.

 

Stuart Hoskins – 1st Team Manager

I Played for Pontardawe Town FC back in Swansea in the Welsh league, then I moved to play in Australia for 3 yrs with Moreland City FC (Captain) and Avondale FC. then back to the UK to Saffron Walden in 2013 as I met my wife in Australia who is from Saffron Walden. My first season in England was with Saffron Walden FC Where I played a full season in 2014 before moving to Stansted FC for 3 yrs before work commitments cut short playing time in the last season so ended up signing for Foxton FC in the Kershaw Premier for a few months before starting the management journey this season.

David Limber – Assitant Manager

I spent the majority of my time as a player in the Essex Olympian Leagues and have been lucky enough to have won divisions 2 and 3 as well as coming runners up in the Premier Division. I’ve had the privilege to have played for and captained a number of very good clubs including Sungate, Debden Sports, Hannakins Farm, Stansted and most recently White Ensign. I have joined Epping Town as assistant manager after a successful first season in the role of player/coach with White Ensign at step 6 in the Eastern Counties Football League. I’m really looking forward to working as part of the clubs new management team and i’m hoping for a long and successful spell at the club.

Sean Aitchison – First Team Coach

life long Hornchurch FC where I’ve seen the team go from Essex senior to Conference South, the Essex Senior Cup Final Hornchurch v Grays in 2013 which I was in attendance and have a picture of my self with the cup. I had a short playing career due to injury the only semi pro club I played for was Romford FC during season 2004-2005 as GK. In 2013 I gained my level 2 coaching badge and Youth Module 1 and 2 and GK level one. I’ve spent 5 seasons within Essex senior league gaining vital experience as physio. 3 seasons at southend manor under Stuart Marshall and 2 seasons at Ilford under Martin Haywood. I’ve overseen the youth last year at Ilford which I have a passion of breeding youth and will continue as part of my philosophy. I was on a winning side in my time as physio championship medal from Southend Manor reserves taking part in the Denny King u21 cup. My next step is to now get Epping Town FC to a decent level like my previous teams which looks possible. I cant wait to be part of this Epping Town FC future

Epping Town FC 19 vs Westhamiams 0

Epping Town are up to second in Essex Olympian League Senior Division Two after a 19-0 victory at home to Westhamians.

Four Epping players – Taner Dagyaran, Connor Hammond, Alex Paraskeva and Tommie Turner – each scored a hat-trick while there were also goals from Joey May, Lindisipho Mtyanda, Brad Gayer, Ryan Folan, Eben Rowledge, Joe Thomas and Joe Killingback.

Epping Town were 6-0 ahead at half-time but another good-sized crowd at Stonards Hill would not have expected the second-half onslaught which sees Epping Town maintain their unbeaten start to the season in both the league and Senior League Cup

Epping Town manager Billy Cove said: “This was a game where we all had to stay disciplined and get the job done.

“Westhamians were unfortunately only able to field ten players but we still had a job to do as they had some very good players, including Epping Town old boy Bill Bradley.”

He added: “The game did have the feel of a pre-season friendly but you can only beat what’s in front of you and we did that comfortably in the end which I was very happy about.

“We had another decent crowd and I’d like to thank the Epping Town community for showing their support.

“We hope to see them all again next week, and we’ll try to put on another good show for them.”

Next Saturday Epping Town host Harold Wood Reserves in a league fixture, with a 2.30pm kick off.

Latest News : Club announces big name signings.

Former Colchester United and Leyton Orient player Joe Keith and non-league stalwart Elliot Styles have joined Epping Town Football Club.

Keith spent six seasons with Colchester United scoring 28 goals in 247 league and cup appearances for the north Essex club before a brief loan spell with Bristol City and then more than 50 appearances in an 18-month spell at Leyton Orient.

He most recently played for Brentford and AFC Hornchurch before becoming manager at Tilbury.

Styles – described by Epping Town manager Billy Cove as “a real-life non-league legend – joins the Stonards Hill-based club after making more than 500 appearances for AFC Hornchurch.

The pair are expected to be in the squad for Saturday’s home match against Galleywood Reserves (2pm kick-off).

Billy Cove said: “Joe Keith is a friend who I admire tremendously. He left his post as manager of Tilbury a little while ago and mentioned about coming over.

“I didn’t believe him at first but the discussion started to get serious and we agreed for him to join us.

“I’m literally still pinching myself as I cannot believe these two players will be in our changing room.

“It’s a huge honour for me and it’ll be fantastic for our younger players to be around great men like these. I’m really excited.”

Epping Town Football Club chairman Chris Ottaway said: “This is exciting news for the club and demonstrates how appealing we are making the club look. Billy and Asa (Pamplin) are working hard behind the scenes to attract top quality footballers and this weekend’s signing of Joe Keith and Elliot Styles demonstrate how serious we are about it.”
