It was a difficult week for East London HC men's side as they could only draw with Thurrock

It was a difficult week for East London HC men's side as they could only draw with Thurrock.

Both teams are fighting for promotion from Div3SE this season and the importance of the game was obvious from the go.

Thurrock enjoyed much of the possession but East London were consistently threatening on the counter attack.

The Tower Hamlets club took the lead three times through striker Kevin Taylor and captain Adam Larkin (pictured right) only for Thurrock to pull back each time to secure a 3-3 draw.

The Ladies team played local rivals Wapping, a team they had convincingly beaten in pre-season.

However, with many of their key players missing the East London girls found this encounter much more difficult and eventually lost 2-1.

The girls drop from the top of Essex Division One but remain within three points of the leaders.

Elsewhere in the club the men's 2nd XI drew 1-1 away, also at Wapping, to keep them within two points of the inner-city team who currently sit in the second and last promotion spot in Div 5SE.

The Ladies second XI faced a skilful Old Southendian team and eventually lost 4-1.

This was despite some excellent goal keeping from Sarah Ward-Davis and a fine goal, which drew the scores level midway through the second half, from captain Morag Campbell.

For the past six months, employers and employees have been adapting to ways of working from home. The green light has now been given to many people to go back to offices safely. From flexible hours and staggered starting times to deep cleaning, we’re getting ready for new ways of working.

School’s in for summer – and beyond – with health experts agreeing that pupils safely returning to their studies is “positively” the right thing to do. It’s vital for all children’s welfare, not just in terms of students’ future education but also mental and physical well-being, as well as social interaction of classmates.

The NHS Test and Trace system provides protection for family, friends, colleagues and the community, and is here to keep all of us safe and allow us to enjoy summer safely. We take a look at how the system is working and talk to one member of the thousands of team members about her experiences.
