The East London Sunday League

THIS season's league Senior Cup final will be a repeat of last year's, when Div 1 leaders Meath United and Rolls Park will contest the final again.

Holders Rolls Park were 3-1 winners against Hackney Downs A in their semi, thanks to a brace of goals from Wells and one from Field.

In the other semi, Div 1 leaders and champions elect Meath overcame Crownfield 2-1 with goals from Hamley and Dean Goggin senior.

Meanwhile, in league action, Prospect saw their chances of possibly catching Meath recede almost completely, when they were beaten 2-1 by the ever-improving Beaumont International, who are third in the table.

Hackney Downs B are another side running into a run of form and they won the Hackney derby with Inter Lucia comfortably enough 3-0.

In Div 1, Stepney's Arbour Athletic are now eight points clear of nearest rivals SK Veleciku after a 1-0 victory over the resurgent Clapton Rangers. John Gilroy got the only goal of the game to give Arbour victory.

Adriatku just edged a 2-1 win over Royal Standard Rangers, while Larkswood kept in contention with a 2-0 success over Byron Athletic.

Leyton United finally got off the bottom of the table, to be replaced by East End United, whom they beat emphatically 8-2 in the division's basement clash.

In Div 3, New North Rangers ran up double figures (13) when they met bottom side Chettle Court Rangers, who scored two in reply. Broadwater kept up their challenge for second spot with a 5-0 thumping of Shoreditch Youth, while a no show from Juva B saw scheduled opponents William Fitt Lions awarded the points.

There are two Hackney derbies in this weekend's cup programme. Royal Standard Rangers play SK Veleciku in the semi-final of the East London Cup, while there is a meeting between Juva A and New North Rangers in the last four of the Dick Coppock Cup.

On the league front, Meath United need just six points for the title. They can reduce that requirement by half with victory over Rolls Park this Sunday, in a preview of the Senior Cup final.
