Wapping’s men maintained their pursuit of East Premier A leaders Peterborough with a 6-1 win at Saffron Walden.

Buoyed by their success over St Albans, they took an early lead in driving rain as Will Cairns sent a drag flick into the bottom right corner from a short corner.

Alain Traill added a second and Grant Aidoo-Nash tapped in a third at the far post after good work on the line by Tom Sibley.

Goalkeeper James Bowler had some work to do to keep the scoreline at 3-0 at half time, while Sibley cleared a corner off the line after the restart.

But Walden eventually got their reward with a deflection, before Cairns produced another fine drag flick to make it 4-1.

Nathanael Crawley led on an attack on the right, before a swift pass across the D allowed Jonny Madill to add to his tally.

And a carbon copy move saw Matthew Seddon to find the net and round off the scoring and move Wapping up to second, two points behind the leaders.

Wapping travel to Ipswich this weekend.

The women were left to rue a 1-0 defeat against their Peterborough rivals in the East League Premier Division.

They began well, forcing a string of short corners, and kept their opponents on the back foot as Kate O’Sullivan, Jordan Mulvaney, Vanessa Sharman, Lottie Colquhoun, Katelynn Roganowicz and Jennifer Allen executed a relentless full press.

Strong build-up play on the left led to a chance for Lucy Todd, who went close to netting, as Meg Pugh, Becky Hart, Dannie Jones, Hannah Gage and Emma Skinner frustrated Peterborough.

But the only goal of the game came from a Peterborough corner and, although Ciara Murphy, Aisling McKeon, Todd and Emma Evans combined well in midfield, Wapping were left empty-handed.

Adam Cope’s goal proved in vain as the seconds lost 3-1 to Dereham, but Darren Hutchinson netted twice as the fourths beat West Herts thirds 4-2 and a Harry Travers hat-trick saw the fifths to a 5-2 win over Waltham Forest seconds.

Matt Patt netted four times as the sixth team beat Brentwood thirds by a 7-2 margin and Ed Richards was another to fire a treble as the men’s tenth team eased to a 7-0 victory over Romford seconds.

The women’s seconds beat Sudbury 5-2 with goals from Ruth Tilsey, Lou Song, Ellie Carr, Zara Reid and Fran Sutton, while the sevenths romped to a 7-0 triumph against Thurrock thirds.
