Two goals from Jeremy Leigh helped Waldaf Town pull off a surprise win over North London Raiders in a thrilling 4-3 victory.

Further strikes from James Kaye and Adam Kaye sealed the points in a memorable Division One encounter.

Raiders replied through Wayne Davidson, Richards Sacks and an own goal.

Moving into Division Two and St John's Wood Tigers avenged their early-season defeat at the hands of London Maccabi Lions, with first-half goals from Ashley Marks and Paul Herszaft. David Kyte pulled one back for Lions from the penalty spot after the break, but the Tigers held on for the points.

EDRS Stonegrove took full advantage to cruise into top spot with a 9-0 crushing of Marshside. Russell Rich helped himself to a hat-trick, Martin Seifert and Ian Leader scored two each, with a Malcolm Joseph penalty and late strike from Nigel Conway completing the rout.

Glenthorne United A maintained their title challenge with a 5-0 defeat on Temple Fortune. David Michaels bagged a hat-trick, with Greg Morris scoring the other two . It was Glenthorne’s fifth straight league win out of five, and they are yet to concede a goal.

Fortune manager David Goldberg commented: "We competed well but gave away a selection of really silly goals. Under the circumstances we did as well as we could."

It proved to be a good day for Glenthorne all round, as their B-team came back from a goal down to Phil Mayer’s strike for Hendon Harriers to beat them 3-1 thanks to a wonder free-kick from Adam Lennard and two fine strikes from Nicky Pitch.
