WENTWORTH ARMS were dumped out of the Dickie Davies Cup on Sunday in a weekend of shock results in the Hackney and Leyton League.

Premier Division title contenders Wentworth slipped up against Tottenham Phoenix, of Division Two, who secured a surprise 3-0 victory following a double from Dean Aitkens and a goal from Jerome Anglin.

Division Four newcomers AC Islington also caused a cup upset with a 5-2 defeat of Division One opponents London Aprilia.

But League champions Lapton avoided a shock defeat as they began their challenge for the only trophy they have failed to win in recent seasons, recording a 4-0 win over Division Two Maynell.

Old King John's Head were in even more emphatic form, crushing reigning Division Three champions FC 7-1, with Anthony White scoring four for the Haggerston side.

Three Compasses also recorded a 4-0 win over Division Four outfit Baris Sports, while Athletico Angels emphasised the gulf between Divisions Two and Three with a 10-2 thrashing of Lammas.

Old George Reserves overcame East London 2-0 in an all-Division Four tie while Black Meteors edged their Premier Division showdown with new boys Red Devils 4-2, with Maxwell Sarfo-Adu, Salahu Johnson, Richie Manu and Soloman Athuene all on target.

St Georges were 10-0 victors over Division Four side Royal Boys, while goals from Daniel Dennis, Jason Laidley, Simon Matson and Justin Leonce earned Jay Cubed a 4-1 triumph over The Aberfeldy.

Albion Manor strolled to a 5-1 victory over Walthamstow Village with Darren Whelan supplying a hat-trick. Raymond Gibbon and Rickie Edwards also scored for the Goldsmiths Row side.

Wenlock Arms recorded an impressive 5-2 win in their Hoxton derby clash with Midfield as in-form striker Harry Turner bagged a brace. Dave Blair scored twice and Alex Garrett also netted for Wenlock, while Luke Trim scored both goals for Midfield.

Wounded Knee recovered from an early deficit against Division Three opponents AFC Knights before Andy Matyo hit a double to inspire Knee to a 2-1 win.

The league's top clash between title contenders Clapton Rangers and Eureka produced a thrilling contest that ended in a 4-4 draw.

Clapton took a two-goal lead but their Hackney rivals hit back to level the scores. Clapton again forged ahead to lead 4-3, but in the game's final minute Eureka forced an equaliser and snatched a 4-4 draw.

James Smith hit a double for Clapton, with Ashley Bennett and Nathan Gordon also on target, while Peter John-Finn's brace and goals from Marlon Campbell and Shane Baptiste secured a point for Eureka.
