SPRINGFIELD, from Division Two, caused the biggest shock of the day in the Jubilee Cup second round as they knocked out Premier League leaders Inter Lucia with a 5-3 victory.

Concordia also turned the form book up side down as they demolished in-form E.F.Y 6-1, while East Moore A overcame a fright after trailing Byron Athletic 4-1 at one stage before battling back to secured their place in the next round by winning 6-4.

East Moore's goals came from Shaun Brennand (5) and Ricky Field (1). Despite his five goals, Brennand did not take the man of the match award however - that accolade went to Jesse Mason.

Adriatiku cruised into the next round, thumping East End United 7-1, with East End's consolation coming from Luke Evans.

S.K Veleciku made life difficult for themselves as Gevic Palace gave them a real battle but it was to no avail as S.K eventually ran out 6-4 winners.

Millwall Albion progressed to the next round with a comfortable 5-1 win over Tube Lines. Stoke Newington also went through to the next round as Reama failed to show.

In the Premier Division, bottom club Hench pulled off a shock, overcoming Clapton Rangers 1-0, while Beaumont International narrowly lost out to Hackney Downs A 5-3. Athletico Hackney again let a 2-0 half time lead slip, conceding two goals after the break to draw with Crownfield.

In Division One, Hackney Downs B's poor run of form continued as they went down 2-0 against Haggerston Park Lions, with Aaron netting both goals. Holloway, who defeated Queensbridge Rangers 4-2, continue to make steady progress up the table, while White Swan & Cuckoo lost out narrowly to Arbour Athletic by a 3-2 scoreline.

New North Rangers lost to a last minute penalty to William Fitt Tigers who now lead the division by a narrow 5-4 win. Acorn beat William Fitt Lions 3-0 and Besiktas narrowly win against Stratford Juniors 3-2.
