Newly-promoted Epping Town Football Club started their new season in Division Two of the Essex Olympian League with a comprehensive 6-1 victory at AS Rawreth.
Epping Town went behind midway through the first half but were back on level terms at the break thanks to a penalty from captain Glen Warwick which also saw AS Rawreth reduced to ten men.
Epping Town totally dominated the second half with a brace from substitute Alex Paraskeva and Joey May, Brad Gayer and Patrick Duggan also finding the net.
Next Saturday (September 7) Epping Town entertain Corinthians – the side that pipped them to the Senior Division Four title last season – in the first round of the Senior League Cup.
Kick-off at the Stonards Hill recreation ground, Epping, is 2.15pm
