Wapping’s men maintained their impressive home form in East Premier A with a 5-1 win over Chelmsford at Lee Valley.

The hosts began well with Ben Andrew slipping the ball between the keeper’s legs, only for the ball to be cleared off the line by a defender.

Ollie Salvesen and Grant Aidoo-Nash did manage to find the back of the net to put Wapping 2-0 up at the break, but it took some composed defending by captain Will Cairns and the returning Mark Bennett to deny Chelmsford a reply.

The visitors started the second half well and managed to halve the deficit from a short corner.

But Wapping applied more pressure and Aidoo-Nash tipped in a pass from Oliver Bull at the far post and Max Bowerman tapped in a fourth.

Ben Bull completed Wapping’s nap hand when pouncing on a misplaced pass to slot home from the top of the D, keeping them two points behind leaders Peterborough ahead of a trip to Letchworth this weekend.

The thirds beat Cambridge Nomads 4-3 thanks to goals from Josh Roberts, Hamish Forbes, Martin Holden-White and Brad Wherry, while the fifths thrashed Brentwoods seconds 7-2.

Ollie Perez bagged a brace, with Mark Rigby, Tom Finill, Matt Patt, harry Travers and Dave Eason also on target, while Ali Parkes and Charlie Ballentine netted as the sixth team beat Clacton by a 2-1 margin.

Dave Charlesworth’s hat-trick led the sevenths to a 4-2 win over Brentwood thirds, but the women were edged out 1-0 by leaders Ipswich in their East Premier Division encounter.

The over-35s were in England Hockey Cup action against Teddington and pressed hard from the start, only to fall behind to a breakaway goal.

The home side doubled their lead soon after, but player of the match Becky Hart tried to rouse Wapping Remains, who won a host of short corners which they could not convert.

Teddington struck twice more after the restart to put the result beyond doubt, although Rachel Haseloff hit back with a short corner goal to provide some late consolation.

Captain Jo Ward said: “I’m incredibly proud of the squad for making it through to round three and we will look to improve on this result next year and hopefully bring home some silverware.”

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
