Ilford continued their solid start to the Essex Senior League season with a 2-0 win at home to local rivals Newham.

The Foxes went ahead in fortuitous circumstances in the 28th minute with Newham conceding an own goal at Cricklefields Stadium.

And the win was wrapped up when Elias Armar Tackie scored for the second straight game two minutes before half time.

Ilford are now sixth in the standings, level on points with fourth-placed FC Romania, while Newham remain in the bottom three.


Tower Hamlets battled back from a goal down at Burnham Ramblers to earn a credible point on the road.

Hamlets fell behind to a 23rd minute goal from Aaron Phillips which put the hosts in charge at Leslie Fields.

The points looked to be remaining with the hosts until Nasser Bello popped up in the 75th minute to grab the visitors a draw.

Hamlets are now 16th in the standings as the look to pull away from the danger zone.
