Striker's five-goal haul helps Stepney Club complete thrilling Jubilee Cup comeback

By CIARAN McGRATH

STRIKER Shaun Brennand stunned Byron Athletic with a five-goal haul as East Moore recorded a memorable Jubilee Cup comeback in the East London Sunday League.

Byron had appeared on course for an upset victory and a place in the third round of the competition when they led Division Two leaders East Moore 4-1 midway through the clash.

But Brennand inspired a thrilling fightback as East Moore put the Division Three outfit to the sword, scoring three times in quick succession to draw level and netting twice more to seal a remarkable 6-4 triumph.

Brennand's fivesome ensured East Moore reached round three, with Ricky Field also on target, but his record tally was not enough to earn him the man-of-the-match award, which went to team-mate Jesse Mason.

Springfield, from Division Two, caused the biggest shock of the second round as they knocked out Division One leaders Inter Lucia, while Concordia also turned the form book up side down as they demolished in-form EFY in a 6-1 win.

Adriatiku cruised into round three with a 7-1 thumping of East End United, with East End's consolation strike coming from Luke Evans.

SK Veleciku made life difficult for themselves as Gervic Palace gave them a real battle but it was to no avail as the Division One side eventually ran out 6-4 winners over Division Three's bottom club.

Millwall Albion progressed to the third round with a comfortable 5-1 win over Tube Lines, while Stoke Newington also advanced as Reama failed to show.

In Division One, bottom club Hench FC pulled off a miraculous defeat of title contenders Clapton Rangers to pick up their first points of the campaign.

Hench, who had conceded 53 goals in nine straight defeats, recorded the biggest shock of the league season with a 1-0 win over third-placed Clapton.

Beaumont International narrowly lost out to Hackney Downs 5-3, while Athletico Hackney again let slip a two-goal half-time lead in a 2-2 draw with Crownfield.

In Division One, Hackney Downs B's poor run of form continued as they went down 2-0 against Haggerston Park Lions.

White Swan & Cuckoo lost out to Arbour Athletic as goals from goals from John Gilroy, Leroy Kemai and last week's hat-trick hero Nick Fautley secured a 3-2 win for the Stepney club, while Holloway defeated Queensbridge Rangers 4-2.

In a titanic battle between the two unbeaten sides in Division Four, New North Rangers lost to William Fitt Tigers after a last-minute penalty sealed a 5-4 win for the Tigers, who head the table on goal difference.
