Leaders Walthamstow were held to a 2-2 draw by Hoddesdon Town, but neither Stanway Rovers or Redbridge could cut into Stow’s lead as their top of the table clash also ended in a 2-2 draw. Over at Wadham Lodge the Stow were handed a 15th minute lead by Charlie Cole, but the visitors drew level with a Harry Norman goal, then took the lead midway through the second half via Ethan Rookard. Stow were able to salvage a point with a Yemi Adelani header. Ernest Okoh and James Crissell were the men that got Stanway Rovers back on terms after Redbridge had gone in the break leading 2-0. Ibrahim Kehinde rifled home a penalty, with Anthony Martin also chipping in. Stanway’s fight back means that at the end of the day Stanway and Redbridge remain 2nd and 3rd respectively on 43 points, with Walthamstow managing to maintain their seven point lead at the top. Enfield’s game against Athletic Newham was postponed, meaning that Stansted took the chance to move to 4th after a solitary Billy Coyne goal secured a 1-0 away win at Southend Manor. Over at Catons Lane and Saffron Walden were beaten by the same score line as Little Oakley captured the points via a Greg Rodger strike. It took until the 51st minute before the deadlock was broken in the Clapton v FC Clacton fixture. Dillon Gordon’s goal opened the FC Clacton account and they doubled their lead in the 73rd minute via Harry McDonald. The floodgates opened a little after that point as Jett Hogan made it 3-0 a mere three minutes later, with Mekhi McKenzie then rounding up the show with a penalty in the 82nd minute to see Fc Clacton register a 4-0 away win that sees them 7th. Clapton remain 18th. Sawbridgeworth Town down in 20th also shipped four at Cockfosters, who end the day 9th. George Beattie handed the hosts the lead on 32 minutes and they were able to go in at half time two goals to the good as Fred Agyemang scored the first of his eventual brace in first half stoppage time. Agyemang notched again just before the hour mark, with Joe Entwhistle adding a fourth Cockfosters goal five minutes from time. Sawbo’s managed a consolation via Arley Baker in the 88th minute. Mo Kargbo scored both Ilford goals in their 2-1 win over West Essex, with Sam McNally notching the West Essex reply. West Essex are now 14th, one place above Ilford with only goal difference separating the two.
