THE league's Jubilee Cup final will be an all Tower Hamlets affair as Premier leaders Meath set up a final date with second-placed Prospect.

Prospect enjoyed a quick reversal of fortunes against in-form Beaumont International. Beaumont had beaten Prospect in the league the previous week, but this time Prospect came out on top 3-1 to reach the final.

Meath had it much easier, despite a plucky showing by Division One Clapton Rangers, who succumbed to goals from Leon Cleverly, Danny Bradshaw, a Johnny Quinn penalty and Jamie Heath.

In the Hackney derby in Division One, Inter Lucia and Hackney Downs B shared the points in a 2-2 draw, while Rolls Park proved too strong for bottom-of-the-table Reama in a 6-3 win.

SK Veleciku went goal crazy in Division Two as they crashed 17 past lowly Byron Athletic in a crushing defeat. The victory takes Veleciku up one place in the table to second behind leaders Arbour Athletic, who weren't in league action.

Leyton Predators were also firmly among the goals, with 10 against East End United, while Stepney's East Moore narrowly won their clash with Larkswood by the odd goal in three. John Gilroy and Matt Wheeler were on the mark for Moore in the 2-1 win. Leyton United edged out Adriatiku 3-2 in their meeting.

The shock of the day came with a first defeat for unbeaten, runaway Division Three leaders Newham Rangers by Juva A. The sides are due to meet in the Dick Coppock Cup final and this 5-2 success was a massive boost for Juva, whose goals came from a David Ottley penalty, George Hope, Corin Harrison, Matty Phillips and Bobby May.

Broadwater have been out of form in recent weeks and lost further ground on the leaders in a 6-2 defeat by Stratford Juniors. London Football Academy beat the improving William Fitt Lions 2-1 and Anadolu were awarded the points from their unfulfilled fixture with Chettle Court Rangers.
