It was another wet and windy weekend which saw four fixtures fall foul of the elements once again. Of the matches that took place, an intriguing Fenton Cup 3rd round clash was top of the bill as Premier Division side Chingford Town travelled to Division One champions elect Blue Marlin. The higher ranked Town pulled off a good performance, winning 5-0 to book their place in the quarter finals against Custom House. Aaron Gonzalez was the star of the show bagging four goals with Duane Lees notching the fifth to secure their side victory.
In the Premier Division, last season's Ilford & District League runners-up AAH Romford's sparkling form continues as they move up to fourth position in the table following a home 2-0 win against St Francis. The sides in and around them have games in hand but no doubt they deserve to savour the moment.
The Division One game of the day came at Wanstead Flats where Forest Green recovered from two early Glendale goals, scored by Joshua Coppeard and Andrejs Nosikovs to rescue a point. Glendale's fellow strugglers, Chingford Town Res, also put in a strong performance as James Hooper scored the only goal in their 1-0 win at Lord Nelson. Debutant Raul Constantin was Northend's hero as he scored the only goal of the game against Three Colts, a result which closes the gap on their opponents to five points but with a bucket load of games in hand to inflict further damage.
Division Two's results each went to form as leaders West Essex Res continued winning ways and indeed protected their unbeaten record with a 7-2 win over Northend Res. Doubles from James Bromley and Jack McQuibban added to strikes from Alex Welch, Otis Gatehouse and Adam Norris as West opened up a five point gap over second placed Grove United. Cowley Community returned to winning ways as they over visitors Dagenham United in a 4-1 scoreline despite a Conor Kennedy goal for Dagenham. Custom House keep pace with the leading pack but will need results to go their way in the remaining games despite a comfortable 4-0 win at St Francis Res. Jack Field bagged a brace adding to singles from Robert Wooster and Tim Mason.
