LAPTON showed no sign of relinquishing the Premier Division crown they have won twice in succession as they opened the new season in the Hackney and Leyton League with an easy

3-0 win over Bancroft.

Dean Robinson hit a brace for the Dalston side and Jason Elliott added the third.

Promoted pair Clapton Rangers and Wentworth Arms both began their top flight campaigns with victories.

In a thrilling encounter, Wentworth beat Albion Manor 4-3 despite a hat-trick from Manor's Darren Whelan, as Sam Cassman's double and goals from Vinny Williams and Ashley Diamond secured victory for the Tower Hamlets side.

Clapton staged a late rally to overcome Old King John's Head 4-0 with last season's top scorers Daniel Senghore and Nathan Scarborough both scoring twice.

FC Metwin hit the ground running in Division One as they crushed Leyton Trades 8-2 - with top-scorer James Smith netting five times.

Army and Navy came from behind to defeat newcomers Real Romania, who had led through Ionut Corpeanu. Jamie McDonald bagged the equaliser before Tony Scally hit a second-half winner for the Hackney side.

London Aprillia, relegated from the top flight last year, enjoyed a promising start with a 5-0 hammering of Wounded Knee.

Athletico Angels underlined their promotion credentials in Division Two with a 3-0 defeat of Old George, courtesy of goals from Andrew Brockbank, Ashley Greene and Michael Case.

FC Highstone thrashed Walthamstow Village 6-1 and FC Lockers went one better with a 7-1 triumph over AC Scorpions.

Cass Weaver scored three for Highstone, Brian Dobson provided a pair and Tom Pearson and Ross Coleman also scored. Adrian Watson bagged Scorpions' only goal.

New side Lammas began life in Division Three with a 4-1 win over FC Big Kahuna.
