Wapping got their new East Premier A season off to a winning start with a 2-0 success over Harleston Magpies.

Both matches between the sides had ended in draws last season, but new Wapping player coach Warren D’Souza saw his side take an early lead through Bobby Bull.

The second goal arrived soon after as Will Cairns set up Bull, before the ball reached Jonny Madill to find the net.

Wapping defended a series of short corners before the break and held firm in the face of more pressure after the restart as the scoreline remained unchanged.

The women made the long trip back from Norwich empty handed after a 1-0 defeat.

They were soon under pressure and defending penalty corners, but kept their composure in a new formation. Despite having most possession, Wapping were kept out of the D by the Norwich defence as the first half ended goalless.

The visitors went close from a corner after the restart and began to dominate play, only for Norwich to turn the ball over in the middle of the pitch and counter to beat new keeper Kate Brannelly.

And Norwich defended their lead in the closing stages, picking up green cards along the way, to frustrate Wapping.

The sixth team earned the only win for the women’s section, beating Brentwood thirds 1-0 thanks to Colettte Martin’s goal.

The seconds drew 1-1 with East London as Jess Frith netted and the thirds drew 1-1 with Maldon as Kris Earl struck.

The fifths drew 2-2 with their East London rivals as Lucy Taylor and Lauren Tranter struck.

The men celebrated nine wins in 11 matches, with Alex Gray (2), Bobby Watson and Alain Traill leading the seconds to a 4-1 win over Peterborough.

Greg Edmunds and Kamal Pun saw the thirds to 2-0 victory over Harleston seconds, as Darren Hutchinson (2), Will Epsom and Josh Roberts netted in the fourth team’s 4-3 win over Colchester.

The fifths beat East London thirds 5-2 as Harry Travers and Ian Harmon nabbed braces and Tom Hammond also struck, while the sixth team beat Redbridge 2-0 as Martin Manecy and Sahil Haria got on the scoresheet.

Dave Charlesworth’s goal saw the sevenths to a 1-0 win over East London fourths, as Joe Del Greco grabbed a hat-trick in the eighth team’s 6-1 win over East London fifths.

Jonny Ellis (2) and Alec Rossiter were also on target, as Sam Uden’s trele saw the 11th team to a 5-0 win over Colchester fourths, with Aaron Fronda and John Pinot de Moria also scoring.

Andy White’s goal was a consolation as the 10th team lost 3-1 to Redbridge thirds, while the ninths went down 6-0 to East London sixths.
