Previous leaders Clapton Community battled to a goalless draw at Harlow Town, as Clapton got the better of Hoddesdon Town.
And Hackney Wick came out on top at Newbury Forest, while Barkingside got the better of Enfield Borough and Tower Hamlets took the points from Dunmow Town, after May & Baker had drawn with Southend Manor.
Sean O’Callaghan was the hat-trick hero for Hutton in their 6-1 success at New Lodge, as Andrew Webster bagged a brace and Stephen Judge also hit the target.

Rivals Clapton fell behind against Hoddesdon just before the break at the Terence McMillan Stadium, but Junior Adeoye headed them level 15 minutes from time.
Jordan Burnett then put the hosts in front on 85 minutes and Erald Desa sealed a 3-1 victory to make it six in a row in the league.
The only way to celebrate a 3-1 home win. https://t.co/GuUBBwUNAJ

Substitute Solaiman Rechia was the matchwinner for Hackney Wick over Newbury Forest at Oakside, heading home from close range soon after his arrival.
Enfield Borough took the lead after 25 minutes against Barkingside, but Fred Agyemang levelled just before the break.
And substitute Kian Skilbeck opened his account for the season when grabbing a winner on 72 minutes for James Wakeling’s men as they moved up to 14th.
Tower Hamlets had their management duo to thank once again for their latest win at Mile End Stadium.
Connor French and Kiernan Hughes-Mason had both netted in their 3-1 success at Park View a week earlier.

And the pair each found the target again as they beat Dunmow Town 2-1 to move up to 10th above Southend Manor, who rallied late to deny May & Baker on Friday.
The scoreline remained blank until the 71st minute at Aveley’s Parkside Ground, when Idris Aminu put Bakers ahead.
And when Gabriel Odili added a second with nine minutes left, it looked like the hosts would claim all three points.
But Manor refused to be beaten and bagged a late brace to ensure honours finished even.
