Wapping's men produced a five-star display to see off Saffron Walden in East league Premier A.

Full of confidence after winning their previous three matches, they survived an early spell of pressure from the home side.

And Wapping then began to dictate play with excellent passing and movement, breaking the deadlock when Ollie Bull latched on to a loose ball to fire home from close range.

The second goal was the pick of the bunch, as Jonny Madill finished off a well-worked two-touch move through middle with a shot on the turn from the top of the D.

Two more goals followed in quick succession before the break, as Tom Sibley fired home short corner and Joe Chedd showed quick reactions at close range to tap in.

A fifth goal arrived soon after the restart as Gaston Golstein tapped in at the far post, but as the half wore on, Walden sat deeper in defence to limit the damage while looking to counter.

Wapping will expect a sterner test when they welcome St Albans seconds for a top-of-the-table clash this weekend.

The seconds lost 5-3 to East London, with goals from Alain Trail, Bobby Watson and Toussaint Wattine, but the thirds beat Norwich City 2-0 as Martin Holden-White and Chris Holland struck.

Jon Broomfield (2), Tarim Chana and Will Taylor netted as the fourths beat Chelmsford seconds 4-3, while Harry Travers and Tom Hammond bagged braces in the fifth team’s 5-1 win over Redbridge.

Mark Rigby was also on target in that win, while Tim Alexander, Fareed Anees and Dave Charlesworth goals saw the sixth team to a 3-2 success over Crostyx seconds.

The sevenths drew 2-2 with their Redbridge rivals, as Tom Griffiths and Jonny Ellis netted, and the eighths had a 1-1 draw with Southend seconds as Joe de Greco struck.

The ninths beat East London sevenths 2-1, thanks to Sam Uden and Alex Van Millingen goals, but the 10ths lost 4-0 to Saffron Walden fifths and the 11th team went down 3-1 at Thurrock seconds, where Saad Ghuri got their solitary goal.
