FC CLACTON celebrated a fourth straight victory and leapfrogged BRANTHAM ATHLETIC after beating the Imps 2-0 at the Rush Green Bowl.

The sides met in an Easter Monday Thurlow Nunn League showdown at the Rush Green Bowl.

Jake Clowsley’s curling effort gave the in-form hosts a half-time lead.

Harry McDonald then put daylight between the sides after the break with an excellent strike past Brantham’s former Clacton keeper, Luke Avenell.

It was an excellent result for Tom Austin’s side, who went into the premier division clash having won their previous three, scoring 11 goals.

The Imps had also been in form, winning four in a row prior to Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Norwich United.

The Seasiders’ victory took them to 60 points, one above Brantham.

It was an excellent way to finish their home campaign and all that remains is a trip to Gorleston on Saturday.

Brantham finish with a home game against Wroxham.

Elsewhere, COGGESHALL UNITED had been hoping to strengthen their grip on second place in division one south but ended up losing 2-0 at home to First Division Knockout Cup finalists HOLLAND FC.

The coastal side managed a goal in each half.

It was Holland’s last league game of the season while Coggeshall finish with a trip to champions Hashtag United on Saturday.

Second-from-bottom BRIGHTLINGSEA REGENT RESERVES were in action at Lopes Tavares and came from behind to secure a stunning 2-1 victory.

Kieran Southgate grabbed their winner from the penalty spot.
