East London [M8s] 6 v 0 Upminster [M5s]

Upminster 5s fell to a heavy defeat at Mile End Stadium on Saturday morning against East London 8s. A fast paced start from the home team culminated in an early lead, which was doubled shortly before half time. In spite of some good play during the first half from the youthful Upminster team, an exceptional piece of skill at the start of the second half ensured a third goal for East London, who tagged on three more before the end. This defeat leaves Upminster 5’s winless after 8 games, with a tough game against Romford 2s in store next weekend.
