Newham United 2 Esprit 2
NEWHAM UNITED were held to a draw at home by Esprit in their Division Two match at the weekend.
Leon Lewis gave the hosts the perfect start with a well-taken early goal, but they were made to pay when Esprit scored twice before half time to turn the game on its head.
Newham piled on the pressure in the second period and deservedly scored an equaliser through winger Charlie Kerr, before a Danny Child effort was ruled out for offside.
Newham United: Polley, Sparowhawk, Millar, Koroma, Grimes, Turpin, Nott, Clarke, Kerr, Lewis, Child. Subs: Stewart, Hoddy.

Bari FC 1
AFC Avalon 1
BARI FC missed the chance to close the gap on the top three by only securing a point at home to AFC Avalon at the weekend.
They took the lead through Mohammed Kidla who scored with an excellent header.
Avalon equalised with a scrappy goal in the second half, but failed to capitalise later in the game by missing from the spot after Talha Ali conceded a penalty.
Bari were equally wasteful from 12 yards out, when Imran Merchant was fouled in the area, but Ikram Adam also missed.
