Snapshots - Braintree Town FC

Braintree Town vs Eastbourne Borough. Conference South, 7 October 2006, Cressing Road Stadium. Score 1-1.  Attendance 497.
With both clubs requiring a much needed morale boost following League defeats and early FA Cup exits at the hands of lower league opposition, a draw was pretty much the expected outcome. Pat Harding fired Eastbourne (red) into an early lead only for The Iron to equalise from a set piece through James Baker in the last fifteen minutes. A fair result overall with the most entertainment coming from Braintree manager George Borg, confined to the stand at the beginning of a two month touchline ban, and clearly frustrated at the prospect!  DB
