Hackney Downs A are now in a commanding position at the summit of the Premier Division after they run out 5-2 winners over Crownfield.

Homerton's title challenge took a knock, as East Moore established themselves as Hackney Downs closest challengers, moving into second place, after beating Homerton 3-2, with Tony and Ricky Field getting East Moore's goals.

Rolls Park have three games in hand over most of the teams in the top half of the table and could still mount a challenge.

They eased past White Swan & Cuckoo with an efficient and determined display to win 2-0.

In Division One, top of the table side Stoke Newington got back to winning ways after a recent defeat.

The north London side were struggling against Railway Tavern and had to come from behind to grab a vital 4-2 win over fourth-placed Millwall Albion.

Stoke Newington's goals came from LJ, Luke Doyley, Kyle McKenzie and Dominic Livingstone.

Queensbridge jump into second place after beating Docklands Amateurs 3-1, Millwall Albion stay in the hunt by beating Romainia Galaxy 5-0 and Hackney Downs B finally showed some form and thumped Hare & Hounds 7-2.

In Division Two, Concordia were trailing 2-1 at half-time to Ollerton Green, but gained the upper hand in the second half with their superior fitness proving to be the clinching factor as they ran out 6-2 winners.

Ollertons goals came from man of the match Jamie Healy, who netted his first goal for the club and a free kick hit from distance from Mark Hill who scored his fourth of the season.

The 45's move into second spot after a late goal against William Fitt Lions meant they claimed all three points in a 3-2 win.
