Saturday 7th January 
Enfield 1893 v Basildon United 
Eton Manor v Burnham Ramblers 
Haringey & Waltham v Tower Hamlets 
Hullbridge Sports v Barkingside 
Ilford v FC Romania 
Redbridge v Sawbridgeworth Town 
Sporting Bengal United v Waltham Forest 
Stansted v Clapton 
Wadham Lodge v Southend Manor 
West Essex v London Bari 

The league leader's Barking are not in action this weekend (they did lose their last game at home to Ilford prior to Christmas) so this may allow second placed Southend Manor to close the gap to just one points if they are victorious at Wadham Lodge. The Blues will have FIVE games in hand over Manor so will still be strong favourites for the title whatever the result.  

Southend warmed up for Saturday's game with an impressive 1-5 victory at FC Romania in the Gordon Brastead Memorial Cup - Michael Hopkins got a hat-trick with youngster Bayley Newell (on loan from Vanarama South side Concord Rangers) scoring twice. 

Burnham Ramblers are bottom of the table with a four point gap between them and Sporting Bengal United - they travel to 15th placed Eton Manor with United hosting Waltham Forest at The Mile End Stadium in an East London derby game.
