Essex Senior League: Tower Hamlets 2 Leyton Athletic 1

Tower Hamlets nabbed a 2-1 win over basement club Leyton Athletic to pull themselves a step further away from the Essex Senior League relegation zone.

New signing Louie Clarke inspired Hamlets to victory by netting a brace to help them earn the three points at the Mile End Stadium.

The visitors got off to a dream start Valter Pedro Simao struck the ball from range and his effort went in off the goalkeeper to give his side a 1-0 lead after just two minutes.

The lead only last seven minutes as Clarke was picked out with a long ball over the top with the attacker volleying it home first time to level the score.
