Clapton and Woodford Town seal victories while Ilford and Tower Hamlets fall to defeats in the Essex Senior League this weekend.
The Tons grabbed a 2-1 win over West Essex at Mayesbrook Park after a turbulent week off the pitch.
Clapton grabbed the lead nine minutes before the break with a low drive from the edge of the area, but after lots of pressure from the home side they finally broke through ten minutes from time when Brad Russell slid home after Michael Mignot had seen an effort parried.
However, they grabbed a winner with five minutes to go to take all three points.
