The first team beat a young and skilful Chelmsford seconds 3-0 in East League Division One South, with goals from Ailish Hendry, Renske Pesch and Emily Menzies.

Perdita Blinkhorn produced some fine saves on her way to the player of the match award, with a trip to Canterbury up next this weekend.

The seconds visited Shefford & Sandy in Division Two South West and took the lead from their first short corner of the match as Mara Waters fired home.

Nicky Sevel tapped in a second from Lucy Bohoslawec’s cross, before Waters struck twice more to complete her hat-trick, firing home on the reverse and then tapping in from close range.

Bohoslawec completed the 5-0 win with a reverse-stick finish, as Annabelle Seymour-Julen took the player of the match award.

The third string travelled to Colchester seconds and netted four times in each half for an emphatic 8-0 victory, while the fourths earned local bragging rights against Wapping thirds thanks to a 3-1 win.

And the fifths maintained their hold on top spot as Katie Wardle shone in midfield to take player of the match honours from a 5-1 triumph against Brentwood seconds, as the sixth team hit Havering thirds 8-0 at Mile End.

And the seventh team were too strong for Brentwood fourths, claiming a comfortable 5-0 victory in Essex.

Lucy Benson opened the scoring at the end of a superb team move, with Amy Ballard bagging a brace as Emilie O’Brien and Cat Senior also found the target.

Ruby Beardsall earned the player of the match vote, while Danae Lopez and Jennifer North produced some excellent runs.

East London’s winning sequence was continued by the eighth team following their much-needed 2-0 success over Romford seconds.

Dasha Popilina, Sarah Collister and Eva Bashford-Harrison linked up well, with Cathy Scott opening the scoring before the interval.
