A round-up of the latest matches involving East London hockey club

Braces from Henry Emery and John Lyness helped East London men’s firsts record an emphatic 4-1 win at Long Sutton in East Division One.

Emery gave the visitors the lead early on when cleaning up a fairly scrappy short corner, and the first half was seen out pretty comfortably with the score 1-0.

Goals from Lyness and Emery took East to 3-0 within the first five minutes of the restart, putting the game pretty much out of Long Sutton’s reach.

There was a glimmer of hope for Long Sutton when they converted a breakaway goal, but East remained in control before Lyness grabbed his second goal from the penalty spot to complete the win.

East London women’s firsts were in equally dominant mood as they picked up a 3-0 triumph away to Gore Court in East South East Two.

With 25 minutes on the clock, Karen Allan dribbled her way into the D and smashed the ball into the goal to the right of the keeper to put the visitors in front.

Soon after, East won a short corner, from which Alix Hayward managed to get a well-driven shot away, which was saved by the keeper, but then slotted in on the reverse by Allan.

After half-time East moved further clear with a well-worked goal that saw Katie McQuillan give a great pass to Claire Bergin, who got a shot away, before the rebound was taken well by Emily Menzies.
