Five matches survived the elements on Saturday on what was the wettest weekend of the season so far.

Chingford Town are into the semi-finals of the Premier Division Cup after a tense penalty shootout win on Saturday against St Francis. In a match littered with chances, Saints took the lead towards the end of the first half to lead at the break but an own goal midway through the second period for Town took the game to penalties. Just one miss between the sides in twelve spot-kicks saw Town book their semi-final place and just one game away from playing at Dagenham & Redbridge FC.

Jolof Sports Club have gone top of the Premier Division after a 4-2 home win against Rainham Working Mens Club. The win carries them three points clear of second placed Chingford Athletic but having played three games more than their rivals. Steve Barlex and Joshua Perry were the men on target with Rainham’s consolation goals.

In Division One, two of the top sides met as Kitgum Boys travelled to Hainault to take on Grove United. It was the hosts, Grove, who secured maximum points in a 3-1 win, go back top of the table with eight wins from eight leagues games this season with Harry Chalk, Ben Lowes and John Hughes netting the important goals. Isma Bukemya found the net for Kitgum who drop to third position.

Two games survived the weather in a hotly contested Division Two and Singh Sabha Barking took full advantage winning 5-0 at home to Newham Royals to return to the top of the pile, a point ahead of second placed Inter Plaistow. Leyton Green stay very much in touch with the promotion chasing sides with a 2-0 win over Custom House secured through a Charlie Saywood double to go third.
