London Senior Cup: Woodford Town 1 Clapton 0

Woodford continued their good form as they progressed past Clapton in the London Senior Cup at the Harlow Arena on Tuesday evening.

Manager Dee Safer made six changes to Saturday's starting eleven that sealed a 2-1 win over Stansted and it was debutant James Jewers who broke the deadlock in a tight affair, coolly slotting home with 14 minutes on the clock.

Woods dominated possession for large parts of a match which sees them unbeaten in three games, but were unable to put further daylight between them and their spirited opponents.

Woods Manager Dee Safer praised the togetherness of his squad despite a number of high profile players departing the club in the past week.

"We have no hold on players and they leave with our blessing, however we have a steady stream of quality from several sources as we showed tonight, we also end up with players 100 per cent committed as you could see."

They now go away to St Margaretsbury on Saturday.
