REIGNING East London Sunday League champions Meath United suffered a shock set-back in their bid to retain the Premier Division crown as they slumped to a

surprise defeat at Crownfield last weekend.

United saw their recent run of good form come to an end with a 3-2 loss to the Waltham Forest side, while second-place Clapton Rangers also fell to an upset defeat in a five-goal thriller against Athletico Hackney.

With two of their title rivals slipping up, leaders Inter Lucia took advantage to stretch their lead at the top of the table to six points following a late 2-1 win over Beaumont International.

At the other end of the table, Hench FC fell to an eighth straight defeat as Hackney Downs A cruised to an 8-1 win. Gamet Powell netted four times for the Hackney side while Andre Porter also hit a hat-trick.

The Stepney derby in Division One produced a thrilling encounter as East Moore and Arbour Athletic shared a 4-4 draw.

In a pulsating encounter, Arbour led until the dying stages but Troy Deering netted late on for East Moore to grab an improbable draw and a share of the points.

The big game in Division Two between Adriatiku and Millwall Albion was settled by a late penalty, which enabled Ariatiku to run out 4-3 winners.

New North Rangers continued their unbeaten run in Division Three with a sixth successive victory as they swept to a 5-0 triumph over third-place William Fitt Lions.

William Fitt Tigers also boast a perfect record from five games after an 8-2 win over Acorn extended their own unbeaten start to the season.

In the division's other game, Concordia slumped to a 5-1 defeat by East London Advertiser Cup holders Stratford Juniors.
