And having been unbeaten up to the point of winning the Division 2 title a fortnight ago, Clayhall A lost for the second successive weekend, going down 3-1 to Pel City. Perry Somers (2) and Ashley Marks gave Pel the spoils, whilst Clayhall’s solitary response came from a Brian Deal penalty.

Ashlodge beat Brady Maccabi B 3-1 through an own goal and a brace from Phil Mayer, with Martin Schultz replying for Brady.

Glenthorne B came from behind to beat Temple Fortune B 6-4 with goals from Ray Russell (2), John Diamond (2), Fara and Alan Lee.
