Our Colts opened their South East Counties League fixtures with a game against Millwall Colts at Savill Road Ground last Saturday morning ; the Hammers' side comprised: Mackleworth, D. Burnett, T. Archer, G. Lillington, W. White, T. Porter, Redknapp, A. Herbage, S. Harvey, J. Gadston, A. Freeman.

Slick, intelligent football had the Young Lions bewildered in the first half and only a failure to finish and a sterling display by the visiting 'keeper kept the score to 1-0 at the interval, Steve Harvey netting just before the change-over. The second half was completely opposite, and the Hammers looked jaded and incapable of reproducing their earlier rhythm ; against the general run of the play the South Londoners more direct tactics brought them three goals for a 3-1 victory

LEYTON ORIENT : South East Counties League


2-1 (Harvey 2)

25th August 1962

Mackleworth, Burnett, Kitchener, Needham, White, Howe, Farr, Porter, Harvey, Gadston, Archer

Our Colts had an interesting match against Leyton Orient Colts in the South East Counties League on August 25th. the Young Hammers played skilful soccer throughout, but found themselves up against two phases of the O's. In the first half the opposition were more direct and robust and held us to 1-1 after opening the scoring in the 17th minute; the second half showed Leyton adopting a more cohesive approach and in general this brought better enjoyment for the spectators. Harvey had equalised for us in the 33rd minute accepting a chance made by Jimmy Gadston after Terry Needham's free-kick. Steve Harvey saw a header rebound from the bar midway through the second-half, but he was more fortunate five minutes from time when he put the ball over the 'keeper's head following another excellent pass from Terry Need-ham, who had a very good debut. Another who did well in our 2-1 win was Dennis Burnett
