The Early setback at the FA’s new stadium venue in East End / Long Look came when Knru Charles latched onto a diagonal pass over the top in the 6th minute to catch out the Wolues defence and coolly slot home to give the National League and Presidents Cup Champions, Islanders the lead, but the Wolue’s fired into life, responded 13 minutes later when Tim Parson rose highest to bullet home a header from a Phil Nelson corner and in the 27th minute, Nelson scored what turned out to be the winner from the penalty spot, after his original shot was handled by an Islanders defender in the box
The score line stayed at 2-1 as both defences remained resolute throughout a tense, tactical, probing second half from both teams.

One Caribbean FC had a hard fought 1-0 win over One Love FC in a game that saw OCFC hand senior debuts to three U17 players in Adrian Pallidin, Gethin Jones & Jarrell Fredricks, who along with Miles Creque held One Love at bay until some more experienced players, held up through work commitments arrived.
The youngsters though more than held their own and kept the game goalless, however with the additional players the team began to grow in confidence and started moving the ball around with pace and precision to create more and more scoring opportunities. Towards the end fitness told on the tiring One Love players and just when it seemed a share of the points was inevitable, up popped striker Kelvin Glasgow, who scored in added time at the end of the game to snatch all three points.
