One tie also in the Dewar Shield, holders Club Santacruzense de Londres beat Premier Division rivals Woolwich 90 3-1 to set up a Semi Final tie against the winners of Long Lane B or Jam. Joel Ramos scored twice, and Abel Viera once for the Portuguese side. Daniel Cotterell with the consolation for Woolwich. 

Two games in the second round, first leg of the Fred Jolly Memorial Cup, and The Oddfellows Arms march on, this time at the probable expense of Bayswater RK. Surely an 8-2 deficit will be too much. Jake McIntyre scored 4, Coy Hardy two, with further goals from Richie Hamill & Eddie Rowland. Also building a healthy first leg lead are Hornfair Athletic who recorded a 6-3 win over AFC Kingfisher, Dominik Smereczynski scored twice and Patrick Smereczyski once for Kingfisher, but the FIVE goals for Sam Bailey and one for Lewis Oduku have put Hornfair in the driving seat.

In the Amalgamated Lifts Limited Premier Division, Footscray Lions missed the chance to go top, going down 2-1 at Springhill United, who move off the foot of the table. Two goals from Patrick Ward doing the damage, with Anthony Sharpe's strike for the Lions no more than a consolation. Falling to the bottom of the table are Orpington Eagles who go down 3-1 at home to Jam. Michael Soile, Myles Alexander and Kai Bichard scoring the goals for Jam, while James Brand was on target for the Eagles. St Michaels are up to 5th spot with a 5-0 win over Sabanoh 97. Jack Jolly's hat-trick and Daniel Smith's brace sealing an emphatic win.

In the Supreme Engraving Senior Division, Woodside Celtic missed the chance to go joint top with Eltham SF and The Oddfellows Arms, neither of whom were in league action, as they went down 2-1 at Turk Ocagi Limasol Russellers. Hamid Bangura and Matthew Dowdall with the winning goals for TOL. Goals galore as Blackfen United leapfrog opponents Phoenix Knights as Daniel & Glen Bannell both scored twice, Jamie Jeffrey & James Tidnam each scored one in a 6-4 win. Corbin Blackie, Jack Cox, Zak Williams James & William Groom on target for Phoenix.

In the Danson Property Services Division One, with the top two in Cup action, Kent Wanderers closed the gap in 3rd spot with a hard fought 2-1 win over Maroon XI Ricky Gould and Chris McGinty with the goals for Kent while Padraig Biggane's strike for Maroon was not enough. Long Lane A slip to 4th as they go down 5-3 to Teviot Rangers. Ryan House, Owen Jeavons, Ryan Jobson & John O'Connor among the goals for Teviot while Jerron Cragg, Jake Keys and Tony Stanley on target for Long Lane A. Last but by no means least in Division One, congratulations to Danson Albion who recorded their first league win of the season with a shock 3-2 win at FC Forza Greenwich. Martyn Brady scored twice, and Dan Cummings once for Danson, while Matthew Woolf scored twice for Forza.

No games in the ABA Technical Division Two so straight into the Summerhill Music Division Three as Heath and Vanbrugh shared 4 goals and the points. Aaron Daniel Anthony with two for Heath and Jack Payne and Robbie Scotcher for Vanbrugh. 

In the Bert Holloway Trophy Group 1, Bexley Athletic are top with a 100% record after a 2-1 win over Baldon Sports. Rennell George and Paul Corbett with the goals, while Keegan Robinson was on target for Baldon. In third spot on goal difference are Division Three Mottingham Forest who recorded a shock 3-0 win over Division two side Springhill United Reserves.

Bostall Old Boys are  in second spot after a 3-1 win over Eltham Lions, John Blaney, Mark Hughes and Kevin Lawrence all on target while Ryan Norris hit the consolation for Eltham. 

In Group 4, it doesn't make good reading for Baldon Sports Reserves as they went down 13-2 to Mottingham Park Rangers. Stuart Jordeson scored 4, Jordan Johnson 3, Esmail El Khabaz 2, with further strikes from Adam Ezrouki, Justin Gould, Karl Pink and Charlie Richmond.
