East London Sunday League

JUVA A will carry Tower Hamlets' hopes in the Dick Coppock Cup final, after outgunning fellow Div 3 side New North Rangers in their semi-final 4-1.

Francis Kennedy quickly shot Juva ahead from a Nana Ageykun pass. New North had an immediate chance to equalise but failed to take the opportunity, shooting straight at Juva keeper Harvey.

It proved a vital miss as Juva doubled their lead when Corin Harrison played a neat one-two with DJ Stewart and crashed in the second from 25 yards.

New North had a number of chances, but didn't take them and Harrison fired in his second with a good shot on the turn to make it 3-0 at the break.

New North reduced arrears when Tshion headed powerfully home from a corner, but some slick passing saw Ryan Sammut add a fourth for Juva before the end to ensure their final place.

There they will meet unbeaten Div 3 leaders Newham Rangers, who were given a terrific tussle in their semi, but finally got through against London Football Academy 4-3 after extra time.

SK Veleciku made it through to the final of this season's East London Cup competition, when they won a Hackney borough derby semi-final, 4-2 against Royal Standard Rangers.

In the league programme, Meath United moved close to capturing the Div 1 title with a 3-2 victory over Rolls Park, whom they will meet in the League Cup final, coming back from 2-0 down. Meath need just another two points for the crown.

Beaumont International are the form team of the division. They continued their recent fine form with a 2-1 defeat of Hackney Downs A to move second and get in shape for their Jubilee Cup semi this weekend. Crownfield and Hackney Downs B shared the points in a 1-1 draw.

Arbour Athletic continue to stretch away towards the Div 2 title. They thrashed lowly Leyton United 6-1, while Larkswood moved second thanks to a 12-1 crushing of East End United. Adriatiku and East Moore's match has gone to the league committee for adjudication.

Neither of the Div 3 games involving Juva B and Anadolu and the meeting of William Fitt Lions and bottom side Chettle Court, have also gone to the league committee because Juva B and Chettle Court couldn't field teams.

This coming weekend's programme features the semi-finals of the Jubilee Cup - the oldest of the league's cup competitions. Div 1 midtable outfit Clapton Rangers will have a tough task against champions-elect Meath, while Prospect will be anxious to take advantage of their reprieve in the competition - East Moore having been found quilty of fielding ineligible players in the quarter-finals and therefore thrown out - Prospect face the in-form Beaumont International.

The East London League, in its 79th year, are now considering applications for next season, particularly in the under-18 division (Div 3) and the senior division.

League secretary Eugene Egan on 07901-964988 or egan914@hotmail.com has further details.
