In midfield Alex Mortimer, Jamie Roberts, and James Mead put in solid performances against a powerful East London midfield.

Up front Densil Donovan worked hard all game to earn Clacton's man-of-the-match, with support from Steven Key.

The home keeper saved brilliantly from a Roberts slap shot but, from another Clacton short corner, the home side were able to break away and score their second goal.

With the Seasiders more worried about who was at fault for the second goal, the home side pressed on to score a third and put the game to bed.

Clacton did regroup a pull back to 3-1 when Roberts slapped home the rebound from a Parkes strike, however east London made it 4-1 straight from the re-start.

The league breaks for Easter before the final two games of the season with Clacton needing to secure points from both games if they are to be playing Division Three hockey next season.

Clacton's next game is away to Wapping III, who are just two points behind them, before finishing the season at home to Brentwood at home on April 5.
