Sporting Bengal’s FA Cup journey came to an end as they were hit for six in Hertfordshire.

Imrul Gazi’s Essex Senior League outfit had already made club history in beating Ipswich Wanderers and Clapton to reach the first qualifying round for the first time in their history.

But they conceded three goals in each half to bow out well beaten and Gazi said on Twitter: “@KLFCofficial well done lads. Some times just gotta concede to the fact the opponent was far superior. Great experience for my young team.”

Only six minutes had been played when David Vaughan brought down Steve Ward in the box and Lewis Toomey stepped up to convert the spot-kick.

But Sporting went close to an equaliser almost immediately as Shiblu Miah’s effort was beaten away by Danny Boness in the home goal.

It was 2-0 after just nine minutes, though, as good work on the left by Oran Swales saw his cross deflected into the path of David Hutton, who volleyed into the top corner of the net.

The shellshocked visitors dug deep after that double setback, as they tried to find a way back into the tie.

But they had a let-off as Lewis Lockyer saved from Toomey, who then saw another effort hit the post and rebound across the face of goal.

Kings Langley claimed their third goal of the afternoon five minutes before the interval, though, as Toomey made up for his previous miss by volleying home from close range.

But Sporting hit back just six minutes into the second half as Miah slotted the ball past Boness.

Lockyer was called upon to make a good save soon after, only to be beaten for a fourth time on 56 minutes as Ryan Plowright turned the ball home from close range.

And Hutton made it 5-1 just two minutes later as he curled a delightful shot beyond Lockyer for his second goal of the game.

Substitute Sean Coughlan went close to a sixth for the hosts, hitting the inside of a post, but they got it five minutes from time as Toomey ran clean through and rounded Lockyer to slot home again and complete his hat-trick and compound Sporting’s exit.

Sporting Bengal: Lockyer, Adeji, Sadiq Ahmed, Rahman, Tandon, Ratambwa, Cameron, Z Hussain, Miah, Rokun Choudhury, Vaughan. Subs: Shahed Ahmed, Rivera, Adjei, Samad, Rokib Choudhury, Garner, Jama.
