Essex Senior League: Stansted 2 Tower Hamlets 3
Tower Hamlets shocked the Essex Senior League by knocking high-flying Stansted off the top spot with a 3-2 victory.
Hamlets took a surprise lead through Dominic Weston in the 17th minute before doubling their lead through Luke With four minutes later at Hargrave Park.
The hosts managed to pull one back to reduce the arrears thanks to a Jack West header in first half stoppage time.
Jack West then brought the hosts level midway through the second-half but Hamlets were not to be denied all three points when Amon Walton-Owen netted a 76th minute winner, which meant the hosts fell to second and one point behind leaders Hullbridge.
