Braintree Iron made full use of one of their games in hand with a 5 – 2 victory over Western Arms to move to the top of the Premier Division table. The match was a tight affair despite the scoreline with the Amber and Blacks only really getting on top when Western were reduced to 10 men late in the first period. A well taken hat-trick from Mitch Simmons after a lengthy injury lay off really setting up the win. The Iron seem to like to share the goal scoring throughout the squad with Michael Frearson and Jamie Gray adding crucial goals just when needed. Mitch for his 3 goals was nominated as the managers MOTM enjoying the stein of beer at our host pub. Luke Frisby, Jamie Gray, Billy Capper, Jordan Miller and Sam Jones provided the midfield platform on which the win was built and as usual the Iron back 3 of Michael Frearson, Daniel Norris and Dan Ward never gave an inch to preserve their outstanding goal difference stats.
