Tower Hamlets broke their duck for the season with a slender 1-0 victory against Southend Manor at Mile End Stadium.

Having taken just a single point from their first five matches of the campaign, Hamlets held firm in a goalless first half in east London.

And a second-half effort from Silo Joao proved enough to bank all three points and lift them off the bottom of the table above Barkingside.

Manager AJ Ashanike took to social media site Twitter to post: “Glad to be back on the pitch after 1 year off and to get that clean sheet and win. Well done boys @TowerHamletsFC. Unlucky @SouthendManorFC safe trip back home lads.”

Tony Cookey posted: “Great to be back playing and great results for the lads @TowerHamletsFC we go again!!!”

Neighbours Sporting Bengal United crashed to a 4-1 defeat against high-flying Stansted.

Bengal conceded three times in the second half to fall to defeat against the Airportmen at Hargrave Park.

Beaten 4-0 at home by Woodford Town in midweek, Bengal made the trip up the M11 to take on a Stansted side looking for a third straight win.

And they found themselves behind after only 11 minutes as Callum Ibe netted for the hosts.

Bengal were back on terms before the half-hour mark, but Ibe restored his side’s lead eight minutes into the second half.

Ibe completed his hat-trick from the penalty spot on 59 minutes and Bengal’s bad day was completed in stoppage time when Connor Hammond converted another spot-kick.
