Wapping saw six of their teams beat the big freeze to pick up five wins and a draw at the weekend.

The women’s first team had seen their East Premier derby with Old Loughtonians brought forward to a Wednesday night date and goals from Jordan Mulvaney and Katelynn Roganowicz sealed a 2-1 win.

Bee Armstrong took the player of the match award for Wapping at Luxborough Lane, while the thirds enjoyed a win by the same scoreline against Crostyx seconds on Saturday.

Looking to avenge their only loss of the season to date, they took the lead midway through the first half thanks to a sweeping finish from Charlotte Holt.

But a lapse in concentration allowed the hosts to hit back and level, before Jess Frith deflected in a short corner to seal the points and leave Wapping flying high in the Essex Premier Division going into the Christmas break.

Marie van Keef scored twice as the sixes beat Witham seconds 4-0 and the sevenths defeated Brentwood fourths by the same margin.

Molly Smith scored twice, with Krystle Stewart and player of the match Hannah Bilson also on target in a fine end to 2017.

The men’s thirds clinched a 3-0 win over Bishop’s Stortford, thanks to goals from Dom Oliver, Hamish Forbes and Tom Rose and the sevenths beat Colchester seconds by the same score as Rory Cameron, Dave Bateman and Dave Charlesworth all found the target.

The 10th XI travelled to Witham Academy and made a bright start.

A host of chances went begging, with Nick Grimwood deflecting over from close range.

Wapping eventually got their reward when Alex van Milingen pounced on a rebound to open the scoring, but Witham pinned the visitors back in the second half.

The hosts forced 12 short corners, but converted only one of them as Wapping man of the match Robin Maytum made a string of fine saves.

Hans Mehrens impressed as a stand-in left-back.
