Brady Maccabi A recorded only their second win of the season as they saw off the challenge from title hopefuls Southgate Harmen.

An overhead kick from Nick Collins and Dan Levy’s winner earned them a 2-1 victory. Alex Bourne replied for Harmen in what was was a niggly, petulant affair with five cautions, four of them coming for a poorly behaved Southgate side.

There were wins for both Glenthorne teams in Division Two, as a Jason Levy strike gave the A team the narrowest of victories over EDRS Stonegrove - opening a three-point gap at the top of the table.

Meanwhile, Nick Pitch (2), David Shome and an own goal secured the points for the B team, as they dispatched Hendon Harriers 4–2. John Nesbitt and Geoff Isaacs netted for Hendon.

Brady B continued their recent unbeaten run, making it five without defeat, with a stout defensive performance against St John’s Wood Tigers, with Brian Deal giving Brady an unlikely lead with just 15 minutes remaining after Tigers had dominated the game.

Tigers equalised with a late goal from Grant Morgan, but Brady held on to take a share of the spoils at 1–1.

And Marshside put their recent heavy defeats behind them to record a win against in-form Temple Fortune, despite playing the entire game with ten men, an own goal and a winner by Fara Moghim giving them a 2–1 win.
