Wapping men’s firsts ended their season with a 3-3 draw at Letchworth in East Premier A.

A brace from Grant Aidoo-Nash and an Adam Fallis goal helped secure a point for Wapping.

The women’s firsts also played their final game of the season in the East Premier Division, but suffered a 1-0 loss at St Albans.

Wapping made a promising start with an aggressive press which left the hosts struggling to get themselves out of trouble at the back.

The visitors played some superb connecting passages of play from the back line through Dannie Jones and Aisling McKeon in the middle and onto the forwards, creating several promising breaks and circle entries from Katelynn Roganowicz and Jordan Mulvaney.

However, they could not quite convert their play into goals, with the match goalless at half time.

Wapping went out strong from an inspiring half-time team talk and looked on top of the game when St Albans made a quick breakaway, luckily Hannah Gage and Becky Hart stepped up keep them out.

The hosts piled the pressure on and managed to get a series of corners which Lucy Todd and Bee Armstrong kept at bay.

However, St Albans played a flat ball to the back post which was deflected into the top left corner past Vicky Salt to give the hosts the lead.

Wapping were not deterred and kept pushing all the way to the end of the game looking to put the ball away, but couldn’t convert.
