Wapping’s women slipped to a slender home defeat in their penultimate match of the East Premier Division season at Lee Valley.

The home side began brightly, putting Maidstone under early pressure with patient attacking play on the wings.

But the visitors held firm and, as the first half progressed, came into the game more to take the lead with a well-worked short corner routine.

Wapping pushed forward in search of an equaliser in the second half, with Maidstone looking to counter, and the home side went close with a number of shots and short corners.

But they had keeper and player of the match Meg Pugh to thank for denying Maidstone a second goal with a string of fine saves as play opened up.

However, despite a late spell of pressure, Wapping could not get back on terms and were left in third place ahead of their final outing at St Albans.

The seconds slumped to a 10-0 loss against Sevenoaks, while the thirds went down 3-1 to Witham, with Jessica Frith on target.

The fourths drew 1-1 with Maldon, as Ruadhan Jenkins netted, while the fifths beat Brentwood seconds 2-1 thanks to goals from Anna Fisher and Ella van den Brink.

Bee Hughes bagged a brace and Bea Dyer also found the target as the sixth team beat Witham seconds 3-2, while the sevenths enjoyed a 5-0 victory over Redbridge thirds, as Ali Scott scored twice and Christina Cassidy, Sara Humphreys and Amy Christie also netted.

A hat-trick from Gige Barbuto helped the eighths to a 4-1 win over Chelmsford sevenths, with Nicky Easson also getting in on the act.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

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.
