Brightlingsea Regent strengthened their Ryman North play-off bid with a convincing win at Essex rivals Witham Town last night.

The visitors broke the deadlock via Junior Baker on 29 minutes, and Ronnie Winn doubled their lead early in the second half. Bury bounced back with Nicky Inrgam (60) and Ollie Hughes (70) on target, only for Ross Gleed to net a 75th minute winner.
Maldon & Tiptree 2
Maldon & Tiptree twice lost the lead as they were held to a home draw in Ryman North. Chris Regis, signed on loan from Colchester United, broke the deadlock on his debut after just five minutes. Logan equalised quickly, but Joe Francis bagged his first goal for the Jammers to regain the lead early in the second half. Ryan Crisp grabbed a last minute equaliser.
