Bethnal Green United manager Justin Gardner described his side's performance in their 5-0 win against Enfield 1893 as "out of this world".

The Tower Hamlets club put on a sparkling display in their Gordon Brasted Memorial Trophy first round matchup, against an Enfield side who are favourites to capture the Essex Senior League title.

Goals from Daniel Sabaroche, Kadir Jama, Marlon Campbell, Anton Stephenson

and Ainsley Gasper were enough as the Green destroyed the opposition.

"We were ruthless on Saturday and thoroughly deserved to win by that score," beamed Gardner.

"The performance was out of this world. Our passing and movement was superb and the attitude they showed me out there was second to none.

"The way we played on Saturday, if we took on a Conference side we would have beat them."

The opening goal came after Joel Gallimore's free kick came off a cluster of players jumping for the ball and Daniel Sabaroche with all the time in the world headed home.

It was 2-0 after 53 minutes when Marlon Boatang's cross found Kadir Jama who manouvered between defenders and blasted the ball home.

Marlon Campell pounched on a terrible backpass from the Enfield defence to make the score 3-0, before Kadir Jama's ball split Enfield open after 69 minutes and Anton Stephenson easily bypassed goalkeeper Steve Wright to roll home.

With 90 minutes of the clock and the game over, the visitors made it an incredible five as Anton Stephenson was brought down in the area for a penalty, which was converted by Ainsley Gasper.

"We wanted it more then they did and we were up for it," Gardiner said, before admitting the conduct of the Enfield players before the game spurred his players onto victory.

"Their players did my team talk for me. A lot of them are friends with my players and all week they had been going on about how they were going to beat us and that really wound my players up."

Gardiner was also keen to praise his players attitude before the game and admitted he struggled to pick the team in the run up to the contest.

"We also prepared for the game really well, which helped us out massively. I was expecting a hard tense game beforehand, but we got there two hours before kick off and everyone was fantastic in the warm up and it that really set the tone," he said.

"I do play a squad rotation policy because I have 25 fantastic players at the club and I would say that picking Saturday's team was the hardest team selection I have ever had to make. I had three ex pros on the bench, which shows how strong we are at the moment.

"We are flying at the moment and confidence is sky high right now."

Gardiner will be hopeful that his side's confidence leads to another victory this weekend when they host Barking in the second round of the Gordon Brasted Memorial Trophy.-
