A crowd of 785 saw Hackney Wick play Clapton on Non League Day


Clapton came out on top against local rivals Hackney Wick in front of a crowd of 785 on Non League Day at the Old Spotted Dog.

Tons took the lead when Wick keeper Steven French came out to collect the ball but was beaten by the bounce and Jeffrey Cobblah rolled it into the empty net.

Nead Clarke went close to a second, hitting a post, and Hassan Nalbani fired the rebound over.

And Nalbani and Clarke had chances at the start of the second half, before Tons were awarded a penalty.

Nalbani sent French the wrong way from the spot to double Clapton’s lead, but Jamie Hardwick hit back for the home side to set up a tense final 10 minutes.

The visitors held on to take the points, though, and are set to welcome Great Wakering next weekend, when Wick travel to Hullbridge.

Hackney Wick: French, Adomah, Ahmed, Casey, Collins, Camara, Goray, Idemudia, Gaweda, Ramires, Hardwick. Subs: Goncharov, Bastel, Djop, Lupungu, Guerra.
