STANWAY ROVERS made it two wins out of two after holding on for a 3-2 victory at Hadleigh United.

Danny Slatter's men followed up Saturday's 2-1 victory against Newmarket Town with an excellent result at Millfield.

Jordan Blackwell and Andrew Wood put them in the driving seat with goals either side of half-time - only for the hosts to fight back and make it 2-2.

However, Milo Grimes grabbed a dramatic winner eight minutes from time to ensure three more Thurlow Nunn League points.

It was also a good night for FC CLACTON, who built on Saturday's encouraging 2-2 draw against title-favourites Stowmarket Town by running out 4-1 winners at Whitton United.

Kyelan Marvell, Billy Wales, an own goal and then a Harry McDonald penalty saw the Seasiders home.

Stowmarket, meanwhile, were back in action against another Gazette side - BRANTHAM ATHLETIC - and ran out 3-0 winners.

In division one south, HALSTEAD TOWN made amends for Saturday's 5-0 drubbing against Wormley Rovers by winning 5-1 at BRIGHTLINGSEA REGENT RESERVES.

Remarkably, Chris Harris scored four of their goals, notching in the tenth, 40th, 52nd and 89th minutes.

Nathaniel Downes had put the Humbugs ahead and Ashley Sauka scored Regent's consolation, making it 4-1.

WIVENHOE TOWN celebrated their first victory of the season as Jack Mead's second-half winner - a powerful effort into the roof of the net - earned a 1-0 success at COGGESHALL UNITED.

And over at the Gwinnell & Sons Royal Oak, Tendring rivals HARWICH AND PARKESTON and HOLLAND FC shared the spoils from an entertaining and hard-fought 1-1 draw.

Both goals came in the second half, with Bailey Barnard's exquisite finish putting Holland ahead.

Dan Clark then turned home a corner at the near post to make it all-square.

Earlier, Shrimpers keeper Sam Felgate, who went on to make several important saves, dived to keep out a penalty by Louie Newland.

The match was watched by a crowd of 219.
