WENTWORTH ARMS have suffered a major blow in the Hackney and Leyton League title race as they slipped to a surprise defeat to Albion Manor on Sunday.

The Mile End side took an early lead through Neil Cashman, but Manor responded with goals from Allan Mullen and Richie Edwards to record a 2-1 victory that leaves Wentworth seven points behind Premier Division leaders Clapton Rangers.

Clapton maintained their two-point lead over reigning champions Lapton following a 3-0 win over Red Devils as Tope Oletagu hit a double and James Smith was also on target for last season's treble winners.

Lapton crushed lowly Prince Regent 5-0 as Daniel Stephenson, Lefty Mgoumi, Dennis Bozdoga, Joma and Jason Elliott all netted for the Dalston side in an emphatic triumph.

Old King John's Head moved up to fourth place and continued their impressive form with a 3-2 win over St George's as David Laird struck twice and Anthony White also scored.

A bad-tempered affair between Bancroft United and Black Meteors ended with honours even at East Marsh following a 1-1 draw.

Michael Idi-Anderson gave Meteors the lead but Justin Weatherman levelled for Bancroft, whose goalkeeper saved a late penalty to preserve the point.

A shock result in Division One saw Wounded Knee overcome Lancresse Rangers in a nine-goal thriller that represents a major setback for Lancresse's promotion hopes.

Steven Ayedole, Don Weekes and Michael Williams netted for Lancresse, but a Jason Reid hat-trick and a goal apiece from Andy Matyo and Diego McLaren ensured Knee came out on top 5-4 in a dramatic encounter.

Real Romania lead the division and are proving one of the surprise packages of the season after they overcame London Aprilia 5-2 with the prolific Ionut Coropceanu scoring another brace.

Homerton Rangers won the top clash in Division Two against promotion rivals Athletico Angels as goals from Lee Greenaway, Quincy Roberts and Mario Allen secured a 3-2 victory.

Leaders Delta had to rely on Dave Armstrong's penalty to overcome stubborn resistance from FC Lockers, while Old George were 6-0 winners over bottom side Walthamstow Village as Jason Cann-Woode netted a hat-trick.

FC Big Kahuna remain top of Division Three following a crushing 8-2 win over Wenlock Arms, while Tottenham Phoenix occupy second position following a thrilling 4-3 defeat of AFC Knights.

Division Four leaders Regents Park Rovers beat Baris Sports 2-1, while AC Islington overcame FC Storm 3-1 and East London forced a 3-3 draw

in their entertaining encounter with Cock Tavern.
