Despite being the champions of the Premiership for the past two seasons, Clacton's performance in the league so far this season had been poor. Dave Ashmore from Colchester H4L A was brought into the squad as Clacton were without players Ronnie Holloway, Stefano Carnevale, and Tom Nicks.

Basildon A 3-0

Basildon were not attending the tournament today, and so all the other teams were automatically credited with a 3-0 victory over them.

Colchester H4L A 1-0 Luke

Colchester weren't quite as threatening as Tendring and D4S and Peter had less work to do than what he had to do in the previous games. Luke opened the scoring not long into the game. He had possession of the ball deep in Colchester's penalty area but also his back to the goal. Despite facing away from the goal this he still managed to curl the ball behind him and into the
