Ashley Meyer and Roger Hiett both netted braces at Robert Clack Leisure Centre, with Jamie Noris and Femi Fanibi also getting in on the act.

And a third successive win sees Romford top on goal difference ahead of their trip to Old Southendian seconds this weekend.

The women were also able to celebrate after beating Maldon seconds 5-1 in Essex League Division Two.

Leah Butcher scored twice for the home side, with Lorraine Farnham, Lucy Polak and Danni Ross also hitting the net to give them a boost ahead of a derby at Brentwood this tomorrow (Saturday, 2pm).

The news was not so good for the men’s seconds, who lost 5-0 to Redbridge Academy in East Eight South East.

And the women’s seconds suffered defeat by the same margin, going down 6-1 to Crostyx fourths in Essex Division Five.
