A composed team display gave Wapping a routine 2-0 victory over Letchworth as they continued their strong run of form.

They headed into the match just four points off the summit of the table after a hard-fought victory over Chelmsford a week earlier.

Wapping made a slow start to the match and a wayward pass from the first whistle put them in some bother inside the opening minute.

Letchworth were largely ineffectual in the first half as Wapping set the tempo, but failed to create many clear cut chances.

A half of limited openings at either end inevitably finished all square, but Wapping would undoubtedly have been the happier of the two sides.

They made their overall dominance pay after the restart as Letchworth pushed higher up and allowed their opponents to exploit the greater space.

The go-ahead goal came with 10 minutes of the second period played as a long corner from Jonny Madill picked out Adam Fallis at the back post.

He was left with the most of straightforward tap ins which gave Wapping a deserved advantage they wouldn’t relinquish.

Madill turned from provider to scorer five minutes later to put the result beyond doubt with a well-taken effort from close-range.

Letchworth looked to mount a late comeback ,especially after Wapping’s number was reduced by a yellow card for Will Cairns.

The Wapping defence remained resolute, however, and a calm display allowed them to see out the 2-0 victory.

The Ladies Firsts also enjoyed a productive weekend as they eased to a 3-1 win over St Albans.

Their clash followed a remarkably similar storyline to that of Wapping’s men, as a strong first half display went unrewarded and it remained goalless at the break.

David Meesham’s rousing half-time team talk looked to have the desired effect as his side started the second period with renewed attacking impetus.

A short-corner soon after the restart yielded the breakthrough as Aisling McKeon, who impressed throughout, fired at goal and Jordan Mulvaney deflected in.

A period of Wapping dominance saw Bee Armstrong pop up with a captain’s goal to make it 2-0 before St Albans hit back soon after.

 The strike could easily have imbued St Albans with greater confidence, but Wapping did well to stifle their attacks and frustrate.

They sealed the win with a fine team move which culminated in Emma Evans slotting home..
