The penultimate week of action got underway on Thursday evening with the conclusion of this season's Premier Division Cup as Waltham Abbey A took on Soul at Victoria Road. Louie Pegg struck midway through the first half before Freddie Bose doubled that lead shortly after, but Luke Hillier's free-kick brought Soul back to within a goal before the break. Soul pushed hard early in the second half but another Louie Pegg header put Abbey further ahead, only for Duke Aidoo to strike within seconds and make it 3-2. But an Alfie Bruno half volley and then a Louie Pegg penalty completed his hat-trick and ended the game 5-2 in Waltham Abbey's favour, sending the trophy home with the Abbotts.


Onto a sun-blazen Saturday afternoon, it was Fenton Cup semi-final day for both Ongar Town and Dagenham United who met to christen a new facility at Fyfield. Ongar made a strong start with Scout Bown netting to give them the lead but Dagenham twice went close from set pieces before a further Bown goal and a Mofi Tunde-Ojolowo effort gave Town an eventual 3-0 victory and a place in the final.


Back in the league, East division champions, Fairlop Rovers, rounded off their league fixtures with a home game against Waltham Abbey A, ahead of their play-off next weekend. Rovers warmed up for that contest with a 2-1 win in Debden, Harry Rouse and Ellis Simmonds scoring the goals to take their wins tally in the league to fifteen for the campaign with one more big game to come.

Elsewhere in the division, there was a cracker of a game between Something From Nothing and Soul who combined to produce a nine-goal thriller in their fixture. Michael Ogunbo and Zachary Thomas both struck twice for Soul but it was the hosts who walked away the happier side at full-time, SFN taking a 5-4 win on the day to record a fifth win of the season.


The big game of the day in the West division came from Loughton where Snaresbrook and Renegade went to battle to define the importance of next week's remaining fixtures. Knowing that nothing but a win would do for them, Renegade were the side to come away winners against their rivals for runners-up as Fabio Pereira and Deimar Queni both scored to make it a 2-0 win for the visitors. A pivotal last day awaits both sides next Saturday.
