PREMIER DIVISION champions Meath United finally got their East London Sunday League campaign rolling with a dominant victory over top-flight newcomers Hench FC last weekend.

Meath have suffered cup reversals and the abandonment of their controversial clash with Clapton Rangers in recent weeks, but had little difficulty in accounting for the top division's newest side in a 7-1 triumph.

Clapton Rangers maintained their enviable record of sitting atop both local Sunday leagues after their reserves side emulated the club's Hackney and Leyton League-leading first team by climbing to the top of the table following a 4-3 win over Crownfield.

In Division One, Arbour Athletic preserved their unbeaten league start to the new season by edging out league newcomers Leyton Trades 6-5 in a thrilling encounter.

But Stepney rivals East Moore are hot on their tails after overcoming Tube Lines 4-2, leaving them a point behind Arbour having played one game fewer.

Tower Hamlets newcomers White Swan and Cuckoo moved into third place after completing an early-season double over Hackney Downs B with a 3-2 victory.

Young Prince have endured a difficult start to the season and their troubles increased last weekend following an 11-2 defeat by Reama, who were relegated from the top flight last season.

In Division Two, leaders Millwall Albion and Springfield shared the points in a 1-1 draw, while East End United snatched only their second point of the campaign after a 2-2 draw with Gervic Palace.

New North Rangers dropped their first points of the season in Division Three after a 3-3 draw with Chettle Court Rangers, leaving William Fitt Tigers as the division's only team with a perfect winning record.
