WEST HAM failed to recover from two first-half Senrab strikes as they went down to defeat at the weekend.

The visitors took the lead after eight minutes, before they doubled their advantage shortly afterwards and although they dominated the rest of the half, West Ham could not strike back.

It did not take long for the Hammers to open their account in the second period through Chelsea Martin, but try as they might, West Ham could not find another goal and crashed to defeat.

West Ham: Amey, Bland, Hill, Hodges, Martin, Pverill, Richards, Rose, Sillitoe. Subs: Alford, Harvey, Hopkins, Jamieson.

TKO 2

Snaresbrook FC 1

TKO ran out deserved winners in this EBHFL Division One Cup Final at Dagenham & Redbridge FC on Saturday.

TKO started the better, with the lively Leon Wickens causing Snaresbrook problems early on, although against the run of play Snaresbrook scored an excellent goal.

It didn't take long for TKO to equalise, after an inch-perfect pass from Richie Eames, found the impressive Wickens, who calmly clipped over the advancing keeper.

The introduction of Warren Ryan for Eames maintained the pressure from TKO.

Steve Willis then replaced the hardworking Kevin Burns and most of the attacking football came from TKO.

Any Snaresbrook forays were dealt with by the commanding presence of Danny Cooley, alongside Lee O'Donoghue, skipper Russell Fairs and youngster Ben Protheroe.

Goalkeeper Mike Pimblett made a couple of outstanding saves whenever Snaresbrook did break through.

The TKO midfield four of Danny Stephenson, Paul Burnett, Eames and Ryan worked tirelessly, and this eventually produced the winner as a cross-shot drifted in at the far post.

TKO: Pimblett, Protheroe, O'Donoghue, Fairs, Burnett, Burns, Stephenson, Eames, Starkey, Wickens,Phillips, Farley, Gallery, Ryan.

Senrab A 0

UPR A 4

SENRAB under-13s finished what was fine season on a downer after suffering defeat against champions UPR.

Senrab started their final game of the season well enough and were unlucky not to go ahead when Shandon Matthews headed just over.

Despite that chance, 1-0 was a fair reflection at the break though.

Senrab again had chances in the second half, but it was UPR who wanted to win more and played like champions.

They went 2-0 up early in the second half and two late goals made it 4-0.

Senrab: Hession, Collier, Croxford, Nimoh-Badu, White, Brown, Edgar, Bader, Smallwood, Harris, Matthews, Wellington-Emile, Elliman, Kizza.
