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.

Tower Hamlets showed good fight but fell short with a 3-2 defeat to league leaders Saffron Walden Town at the Mile End Stadium.

Ross Adams, Spike Bell and then Greg Strong netted for the visitors to seal the points and remain top of the table by two points.
