East London men’s firsts kept the heat on East Premier B leaders Wapping with a 3-2 win at home to Waltham Forest.

East opened the scoring through Craig Spencer after well worked move, but Waltham Forest hit back through a goal which required goalline technology to make it 1-1 at the break.

The hosts came out strongly in the second half and scored from a short corner thorough Andy Cumine.

Lapse defending meant that Waltham hit back immediately, but Eliott Bingham then tapped home the winner to edge the game for East.

The women’s firsts are also embroiled in a title challenge, though a 1-1 draw at home to Upminster saw them slip to second in East One South and a point behind new leaders Maidstone.

East scored first when a beautiful disguised ball from Ailish Hendry found Emily Menzies who deflected it home from inside the D.

Despite the hosts dominating the exchanges, throughout Upminster equalised due to a defensive mishap.

There was better news for the women’s seconds as they cruised to a 9-2 success at West Herts in East Two South West.
