Clapton enjoyed a good week in the Essex Senior League after remaining unbeaten in their local derby clashes.

The Tons travelled to rivals Newham last Wednesday (February 24) and smashed eight past the home side.

Roddy Lemba and Tony Cookey helped themselves to braces while Nathan Cook, Freddie Morris, Geoff Ocran and Nathan Mukuna all found the net in the 8-1 win.

Harry Cooper’s goal for Newham was a scant consolation at Chadfields Stadium.

Michael Walther’s Clapton then played out a 1-1 draw with London Bari at the Old Spotted Dog on Saturday.

Warren Mfula was on target for the Tons to earn them a point after Peter Wilcox scored for Bari. Tons visit Station Road this weekend to take on Takeley.

Newham couldn’t bounce back from their seven-goal reverse as they lost 2-0 at local rivals Sporting Bengal United on Saturday.

Shamrez Darr’s men put in an improved display, but have dropped to 20th in the table and do not play again now until next Wednesday.

Bari are set to to face Greenhouse Sports tonight (Wednesday) with the match taking place at Ilford’s Cricklefields Stadium.

After that fixture, Chris Davis’ team will host Allan Fenn’s Foxes this weekend at the Old Spotted Dog.
