Our guide to the weekend’s fixtures


East Premier B

Crostyx v Havering (12pm)

Ollie Cipa’s late goal allowed Havering to claim an exciting 5-4 win at Letchworth last weekend.

And they will visit a Crostyx side, currently sitting in fifth place, looking to keep pace with top two Wisbech Town and Ramgarhia.

Like Cipa, Chris Dunn netted a brace in Havering’s most recent outing – making it nine in five games – and Michael Caruana Smith was also on target.

East Division 2S

Stevenage v Upminster (1pm)

Upminster were knocked off top spot by Brentwood after being held to a draw by Royston last weekend.

Four successive wins had taken Glen Noller’s side to the summit and long-serving Mike Scrivener put them ahead at Coopers.

But Royston hit back with a double after the restart and Upminster needed a Noller strike to salvage a point from a 2-2 draw.

East Division 4SE

Romford v Chelmsford III (1pm)

Table-topping Wapping 3rds hit Romford for six in east London last weekend.

John Toh actually opened the scoring for the visitors, but Wapping hit back in style to run out 6-1 winners.

Romford will want to bounce back quickly at Robert Clack, but Chelmsford are flying high in second place at present, despite suffering their first defeat in five last weekend.
