The Non-League Football Paper - - BOSTIK LEAGUE PREMIER - By Alan Evans

BRIGHTLINGSEA Re­gent moved into the top half of the Bostik Premier af­ter scor­ing two sec­ond-half goals at Pot­ters Bar Town.

The Rs had the best chance of a very scrappy first half late on, with Aaron Con­don forc­ing a strong save Town keeper Berkley Lau­rencin.

Re­gent soon took the lead af­ter the restart. Star striker Billy Hunt was brought down in the box and would pick him­self up to con­vert the penalty on 47 min­utes.

The vis­i­tors con­tin­ued to at­tack and Lau­rencin again had to make a good save from Hunt as Billy Jones played him in.

Har­vey Hodd then beat his man, only to fire over from a tight an­gle with 14 min­utes to go as Brightlingsea con­tin­ued to pour for­ward.

Pot­ters Bar were re­duced to ten men with ten min­utes re­main­ing, as Lau­rencin was shown a red card for an off-field in­ci­dent af­ter jump­ing a perime­ter fence to col­lect the ball.

The Rs cap­i­talised on play­ing against a standin keeper with Hunt dou­bling up in stop­page time, beat­ing his man be­fore fir­ing past the makeshift keeper to wrap up the points.

STAR MAN: Billy Hunt (B. Re­gent) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
