Dickie Davies Cup holders Lapton retained the trophy after a comfortable 5-1 win against Cosmopolitan.

The Premier League leaders were too strong for their second division opponents and three goal, 12-minute first-half blitz killed the game as a contest.

Free-scoring Maurice Byfield opened his account after 18 minutes, before a Daniel Stephenson strike and another Byfield goal on the half hour gave Lapton a handy lead.

Sherwin Stanley replied for Cosmo in the 65th minute to give his side a glimmer of hope, but 10 minutes later Byfield put the game to bed with his third, while Stephenson rounded off the scoring.

Bancroft United have a chance to make amends for last seasons' Hackney Gazette Cup Final defeat after a 3-1 win over OKJH meant they made it to the last two for the second consecutive year.

Shane Allen had given his side a 10th minute lead, before Anthony White equalised. United upped the tempo in the second half as goals from Benga Odusina and Shane Baptiste sealed the victory for Bancroft.

Lapton picked up their second win of the week as they beat Premier League challengers Black Meteors 2-0 on Sunday thanks to goals from Dean Phillips and Byfield.

In the chasing pack, Clapton came from behind to beat MSW 5-2.

Brian Okwera, Johnny Offei, Sid Egan and Abraham Adejokun and Maxium Urbanas netted, while Dean Francis and Adrian Sterling scored for MSW.

Red Devils moved into the top half of the table after a Gavin Morgan strike handed them a 1-0 win over Albion Manor.

Division One runners-up Mile End beat Polit 6-2 to finish just a point behind winners Metwin.

Lee Smith struck twice, while Michael O'Donoghue, Kiren O'Donoghue, Jason Burwood and Abrahams Mahmood were all on target, while Rida Knight and E Lkhabaz replied for Polit.

In Division Two, Lammas ended their campaign 3-2 win over Jay Cubed. Danny Walker, Andy Dolan and Seagun Oladapo were on target, while Jason Harley and Steve Small replied for Cubed.

Cosmopolitan fought back from going a goal down to beat Storm 4-1.

Konstatin Smal gave Storm the lead, before doubles from Daniel Stanley and Adam Iyayi sealed the win for Cosmo.

Tottenham Phoenix beat Midfield 2-1 with goals from Jermaine Anglin and Stewart Downes, while Luke Trimm replied for Midfield.

A Ricky Hanmore hat-trick meant Wenlock Arms ended their Division Three season with a 3-0 win over champions Hackney Borough, who tasted a league defeat for the first time this season.

Mustard won 2-1 against Hoxton Foxes. Hoxton were 1-0 up at the break thanks to a Gabby Mundo, before second half goals from Dylan Kelly and Billy Wenzel gave Mustard victory.

Comet completed their Division Four campaign with a 4-3 defeat against East London, who moved off the bottom of the table.

Loren Ramsey and Jay Phull both hit doubles, while S Deering A Heath and L Mason were on target for Comet.
