Romford’s men bounced back from defeat to thrash Wapping eights 8-1 in their East Five South East clash at Robert Clack.

Player-coach Roger Hiett opened the scoring with a drag flick from a corner and Ashley Meyer made it 2-0.

James Norris sent an aerial to Meyer to add a third, with Alfie Harvey tapping in at the far post, as Meyer completed his hat-trick with a reverse-stick strike from the top of the D before the interval.

Wapping replied in the second half, but Meyer’s fourth goal was followed by two more from Harvey and a superb diving save from Tom Woodman late on denied the visitors a second.

Stand-in keeper Stuart Boyling was beaten just once as the thirds lost 1-0 to Chelmsford sevenths, but the seconds lost 5-1 to Wapping 10ths.

The women beat Essex League Division Two leaders Old Southendian 1-0 thanks to Leah Butcher’s goal, after a mazy run, but the seconds lost 4-1 to Braintree fourths.
