JK Silvertown sealed a 2-0 victory over table-toppers Barkingside on a cold morning in Beckton.

JK knew they had to be at 100 per cent to get anything out of the game against trhe undefeated Barkingside.

It was JK who started the brightest out of the both teams, but not really cutting out any real chances.

In the 30th minute a bad back pass from JK found the Barkingside forward with an open goal and somehow he managed the blaze it over - meaning they went into the break goalless.
