Tower Hamlets bounced back from a heavy 6-0 defeat to St Margaretsbury on the weekend with a comfortable 4-0 victory against Barkingside last night.

A brace from Luke Thomas, a goal from Luke With and an own goal sealed the three points for Hamlets at Mile End Stadium.

Barkingside are now 11 games without a win in the Essex Senior League and remain at the foot of the table.

Thomas opened the scoring in the fifth when he fired home from a tight angle well out near the corner flag to give his side the lead.

It got worse for Michael Walther’s side as a free-kick from near the away dugout was delivered into the near post and sliced into the net by one of their own defenders.
