CROSTYX took advantage of Redbridge and Ilford's inactivity at the weekend to move to the top of the Norwich Union East Premier League with a 3-0 victory over the bottom club, Broxbourne, with goals from Paul Diver, Graham Smith and Steve Rookes, writes Bill Colwill. Crostyx lead Redbridge thanks to their greatly superior goal difference.
