East London 1 Wapping III 0
EAST LONDON'S men's first team edged out local rivals Wapping by a single strike at Mile End Stadium at the weekend.
The home side were looking to continue their recent good form and were without several key players, but a composed performance from midfielders Adam Willoughby, Howard Nicklas and Keith Davison ensured they controlled the contest throughout.
After a goalless first half, Chris Jones opened the scoring to make it 1-0, and they came close to extending the lead through Dan Hyden, but Wapping held firm.
