FC Clacton 1 March Town United 3

MARCH Town United chairman Phil White hailed Chris Anker as the league's best goalkeeper after he produced an outstanding performance to help the Hares to an excellent win.

He produced a number of top draw saves and commanded his penalty box throughout Saturday's clash on the Essex coast.

Anker made a superb penalty save, diving low to his right, after committing a foul and it remained goalless at half-time.

Ash Brand raced through to give March the lead and Lee White doubled the advantage with a stunning 20-yard drive.

Clacton replied with a scrappy goal but Brand restored the two-goal lead with another fine finish.

White said: "Chris was absolutely amazing. If seen him produce performances like this before and in my mind he's far and away the best goalkeeper in the league.

"I just hope we can keep hold of him for next season."

March play their final game of the season, at home to Debeham tomorrow.
