STANWAY ROVERS won their first game since Karl Duguid took over as manager following a 2-1 victory at home to BRANTHAM ATHLETIC.

Rovers have played four times since the Colchester United legend was appointed at Christmas - losing three before drawing at Thetford Town last Saturday.

Now they are celebrating the first victory of Duguid's tenure following a tight match at The Hawthorns on Saturday.

All the goals came in the second half.

Meanwhile, the wintry weather claimed a couple of matches, with postponements at both WIVENHOE TOWN and FC CLACTON.

The latter had been due to host Gorleston, but the game was called off after a 10am inspection.

Walsham-le-Willows were the scheduled visitors to the Maple Tree Cars Stadium but that match was also postponed after an 11.30am inspection.

Meanwhile, Wivenhoe have confirmed no less than six new signings.

Midfielder Milo Downey has joined from Brantham.

The former Colchester United Academy player featured 27 times for the Imps this season, scoring two goals.

Attacking midfielder Peter Maina has returned to the club.

Maina played 43 times for Wivenhoe during the 2013/14 and 2014/15 seasons, scoring four goals, including a memorable strike against Clacton.

Midfielder James Lelliott has joined from the University of Essex, following their decision to pull out of the Essex and Suffolk Border League.

Defender Stephen May has signed for the Dragons, having previously played for Cornard United and Gosfield.

Another defender, Constandinos Gaughan, has also joined, having made his debut as a substitute in last week's match at Gorleston.

And goalkeeper Aaron Reid has rejoined the Dragons, having played 25 times for the club's first team in several spells at the club.

First division leaders COGGESHALL TOWN were not due to play on Saturday anyway.

They return to action on Tuesday night, against HALSTEAD TOWN in the First Division Knockout Cup.

The Humbugs warmed up for that match with a 3-1 derby win at home to Cornard United.

HOLLAND FC were also among the goals, romping to a 5-0 success at Dereham Town Reserves.

And to complete a hat-trick of Essex wins in the first division, BRAINTREE TOWN RESERVES pipped Woodbridge Town 2-1.
