East London Sunday League
CHAMPIONS Meath United reignited their fading title challenge in the East London Sunday League with a crucial victory over Rolls Park last weekend.
Meath have struggled to emulate their form of recent seasons in the opening weeks of the current campaign, but will hope that Sunday's 1-0 win will revive their championship ambitions after leaders Clapton Rangers slipped up against Inter Lucia.
Clapton fell to their first defeat of the season as Inter collected a 3-1 victory that lifts them into second position in Division One.
SK Veleciku remain third following a narrow 3-2 win over Hackney Downs, while Beaumont climb into fourth position courtesy of a 5-1 rout of Hench FC.
The clash of the day in Division Two saw Arbour Athletic lose out to promotion rivals Reama 5-4 in a controversial contest.
Arbour appeared destined for at least a point following goals from Danny Lambert, John Gilroy, John Rossington and Perry Greenberg but the outcome was sealed late on when Reama cracked home a free-kick despite an Arbour player lying injured on the field.
White Swan and Cuckoo, from the Isle of Dogs, are in second place after a 5-3 victory over Queensbridge Rangers, while East Moore remain third with a 2-1 defeat of Hackney Downs B.
Young Prince achieved their first win of the campaign when they beat Haggerston Park Lions 4-3, having raced into a 3-0 lead.
In Division Three, EFY dropped their first league points of the campaign in a 2-2 draw with Springfield, but Stoke Newington kept their 100 per cent record by overpowering Gervic Palace in an 8-3 triumph.
William Fitt Tigers side made it five wins out of five in Division Four with a 5-1 win over Stratford Juniors and currently lead New North Rangers, who also have a perfect record, on goal difference.
