Freddy Moncur is grateful for the opportunity Wingate & Finchley have given him after joining the Bostik Premier club last month, writes George Sessions.

The 21-year-old left Leyton Orient by mutual consent on February 9 after five-years at Brisbane Road having come through the O’s academy set-up.

It was a tough decision for the midfielder to make, but after he exited E10, he quickly completed a move back to the Blues.

Moncur had previously enjoyed two successful loan spells with the north Londoners and is now back with Keith Rowland’s team on a permanent basis and excited about the future.

“At my age now I need to play and the seasons seem to go a lot quicker too,” said Moncur.

“I’m not actually a kid anymore and I love playing football. I want to play in every minute of every game and Wingate have given me the opportunity and hopefully I can kick on now.”

Moncur started both games for the Blues in the Bostik Premier this week and Rowland’s team enjoyed a mixed time despite two decent performances.

On Saturday, Wingate secured their first victory since February 3 with a 2-1 success at home to Tonbridge Angels.

First-half goals from Reece Beckles-Richards and Luke Ifil put the hosts in control and even though Sonny Miles pulled one back for the Angels, they were left seeing red at full time.

Blues couldn’t back up that win with another on Monday night, but put in a solid effort at home to big-spending Billericay Town.

Wingate started on the front foot and enjoyed the better of the opening half an hour, but Town took the lead in the 36th minute through Danny Waldren.

A Billy Bricknell penalty made it 2-0 three minutes into the second half and Jake Robinson added a third in the 68th minute.

Irnti Rapai did pull one back for the home side with two minutes to go and it was the least they deserved for their efforts.

Blues will now look to get back on track tomorrow (Friday) away to Burgess Hill Town before hosting local rivals Hendon on Easter Monday (April 2).

Bostik North outfit Haringey Borough will be hoping for two wins this week after Saturday’s 3-3 draw with Heybridge Swifts.

Tom Loizou’s men lost a three-goal lead and now host Mildenhall Town on Saturday and visit Waltham Abbey on Monday.
