Gary Pearman pleased with strength of squad ahead of hosting struggling West Norfolk this weekend at the Memorial Ground

Andrew Little scored three of East London’s seven tries during their 49-21 win over Southwold in the first round of the Senior Vase last weekend.

The outside centre was in fine form as the two London Three North East rivals produced an entertaining contest at the Memorial Ground in West Ham.

Ryan Billinghurst put the hosts 6-0 up after slotting two penalties with ease.

Southwold hit back with two penalties, before taking the lead with an unconverted try five minutes before the break.

Dan Bracken went over for East London to ensure it was all square at half time, before Michael Anderson scored a try just after the break.

Once more the visitors levelled it up with an effort of their own, before Little took over and grabbed two quick tries with Billinghurst converting both.

Joe Kelly helped East London extend their advantage by running past three opponents, before allowing Josh Cooke to go over for an easy effort.

Southwold briefly threatened to come back by crossing over, before Little completed his hat-trick with a charge down and a clean set of heels.

Alex Mylchreest grabbed one final try with Billinghurst kicking the extras to seal a 49-21 victory for East London.

Player/coach Gary Pearmain was happy to see the strength in depth at the club shine through.

“We were forced to make a few changes from last week because of injuries and unavailability,” he said.

“But those that stepped in did themselves and the club proud and we have some nice selection headaches for next Saturday.”

East London host struggling West Norfolk this weekend eyeing a third win in the league up against a side which has lost every time they’ve played in the division so far this season.
