Ollie Bull's late brace helped Wapping come from behind to beat lowly Norwich City 2-1 in East Premier A.

Buoyed by a fine win at Bedford, the hosts were in confident mood on a bitterly cold day.

And after a sloppy start, they began to take control and apply pressure on the visitors, whose keeper made a string of saves from penalty corners in a goalless first half.

It was a similar story after the restart as Wapping dominated possession and territory, but could not make the breakthrough.

As frustrations began to grow, the home defence were caught off-guard by a long aerial from the Norwich full-back, which found his striker to score against the run of play with around 10 minutes left.

But Bull turned things around with two goals in two minutes and, despite missing further chances late on, Wapping claimed the points ahead of their trip to Saffron Walden this weekend.

The women have endured a tough start to their season, but were in determined mood for the visit of Peterborough, who forced Kate Brannelly to make a number of quality saves.

Wapping continued to absorb pressure in the second half and, with only three minutes left, got the only goal of the game.

Chelsea Hodgson played a one-two with newcomer Emily Wilford, who found Katelynn Roganowicz to the right of the D, and he first-time pass found Jordan Mulvaney to fire home.

Matthew Hyden’s hat-trick led the men’s seocnds to a 4-3 win over Dereham, with Alain Trail also on target, while Tom Hammond’s treble saw the fifths to a 5-1 victory over Clacton.

Martin Holden-White (2) and Hamish Forbes struck as the thirds beat Potters Bar 3-0, while Dave Bateman and Hamza Ateeque goals saw the sevenths to a 2-1 win over Havering seconds.

The sixth team beat East London thirds 3-1 thanks to goals from Alistair Dance, Martin Manecy and Jon Attenbury and the eighths defeated Redbridge seconds by the same margin as Gareth Williams, Oli Perez and Angel de Perez notched.

Sam Uden (2) and Jon Lowe saw the ninths to a 3-2 win over Maldon seconds, while the 10ths and 11ths had 2-1 wins over Waltham Forest and Braintree Knights, with goals from Ivo Verstralen, Josh Murphy, Dylan Morgan and Ian Bradley.

The fourths were the only men’s team to lose, going down 5-2 to East London after Oscar Faas and Will Epsom netted.

The women’s thirds drew 2-2 with Chelmsford as Pascaline Dubois and Babs Lo Guidice struck, while the fifths beat Colchester thirds 3-0 with goals from Lucy Taylor, Claire Williamson and Lauren Bould.

Francesca White (2), Ali Scott and Christina Cassidy netted as the sevenths beat Braintree seconds 4-0, while Jess Bartlett (2), Faye Zeller (2) and Celine Guillamet led the eighths to a 5-2 success over Witham thirds.

The fourths lost 2-0 to East London thirds, though, and the sixth team went down 4-1 to Romford, with Emma Mcready getting the consolation goal.
