East London's ladies' first team picked up a vital 1-0 win at title rivals Maldon and Little Baddow at the weekend.

The current league leaders made the trip to a side currently second in the Essex Women's Hockey League Division One, but only by virtue of goal difference.

East London had a strong opening half but couldn't find the breakthrough.

The visiting defence were enough to prevent the home side from taking the lead and an excellently taken goal from Georgie Manley was enough to claim all three points and a clear lead at the top of the table.

East London's men's team made tough work of earning the 2-1 victory over a University of Essex side at Mile End.

The home side dominated possession Sand headed into the break with a slender 1-0 lead thanks to a close range finish from Dan Hyden, after excellent work from James Cook.

The second half continued in the same fashion but the University side began to create chances at the opposite end, converting with 20 minutes remaining to draw the points level.

East London continued to press and eventually Cook found an opening again slipping the ball through allowing Adam Willoughby to convert for his fourth goal in five games.
