Mark Stimson celebrated his manager of the month award in style, as Waltham Abbey made it seven league wins on the bounce with a 3-0 victory over Uxbridge.

The Abbott’s boss was named as the Bostik South Central League’s manager of the month after his side won each of their four league games in September and he celebrated that award in perfect fashion, as Abbey moved to the top of the table thanks to their win over Uxbridge.

Following an even first half, Abbey had on loan Leyton Orient goalkeeper Arthur Janata to thank when he made two strong saves after the re-start to ensure the game remained finely poised.

Those saves proved to be crucial as the Abbott’s hit the front on the hour mark when substitute Ibrahim Kehinde crossed for Ronnie Winn, whose lay off fell perfectly for Ellis Brown to hammer into the top corner.

Brown doubled his tally for the afternoon three minutes later as he was left with a simple finish from close range after good work from Kehinde once again.

With two assists to his name, Kehinde would get his name on the scoresheet with three minutes remaining, as he looped the ball over the onrushing Uxbridge goalkeeper to secure Abbey a comfortable victory.

Stimson told the club’s website: "In terrible rain and windy conditions, the first half was even with both keepers called into action at various times.

“The second half, we took control of the game after pressure from Uxbridge in the first initial ten minutes. Ibrahim made a massive impact on the game, which we ask all subs to do, and deservedly got his goal.

“It was also immensely pleasing for us to get the 3 points when we had five first team members injured or unavailable."
