Eastern Counties League, Premier Division
Hadleigh United 5 Brantham Athletic 0 (att 115)
Hadleigh United's Millfield home was the final ground I needed to complete both divisions of the Eastern Counties League, and so a Friday night match was an ideal way to finish the league.
Hadleigh certainly turned on the style, as they steamrollered a disappointing Brantham and ran out easy winners. A 5-0 scoreline didn't flatter the home side, and with better finishing they could easily have won by more.
They scored twice in the first half, then two of the three second half goals were in the closing minutes, and at least ensured the result reflected the balance of play.
I liked the ground. The seated stand is "old school", with wooden bench seating inside, and is on the far side of the pitch from a nice clubhouse. There's plenty of cover built in front of the clubhouse, from where most of the home side's supporters watched the action.
