Saffron Walden’s women were held to a 1-1 draw by East London in East Two South West on Saturday.

They began well and got their reward when Banks carried the ball towards the D and swapped passes with Westnedge before scoring.

Pargeter made two fine saves and some last-ditch tackles by Mitchell and Pearce kept Walden ahead.

But East London had the better of the second half and drew level, before their keeper denied Banks and Bozianu to ensure the teams shared the spoils.

The thirds lost 2-1 to their Stevenage rivals, with Gallia Goddard on target.

And the men’s thirds went down 3-1 against Colchester in East Three South East.

Haydn Watts and Gary Foster produced good runs early on and a sensational run from Nigel Stevenson was finished off by Foster.

But Colchester scrambled an equaliser before half time and took two chances after the restart. Jacob Stevenson was man of the match.
