A quartet of goals from leading marksman Chris Stowe helped his Colebrook Royals side on the way to another victory, this time seeing off Singh Sabha Barking in a 5-0 win in Newbury Park.

In the division’s other game, braces for each of Jason O’Hare and Danny Vass plus a single goal for Rasheed Allen were enough for Inter Plaistow to see off Glendale in a 5-2 victory. Terry Allen was the Dales’ scorer for both of their goals.
