East London men's first team recovered from last week's defeat with a 6-0 victory over Saffron Walden seconds at Mile End.

Lee Tickner opened the scoring after 10 minutes slotting home after a slick East London passing move.

James Cook and Kevin Taylor added to the score before half time. A second-half hat-trick from Taylor finished off the game with the vital three points keeping East London in the hunt for promotion.
