Disappointing exits for Essex Senior League rivals

St Margaretsbury 3 Ilford 2

Ilford crashed out of the FA Vase at Spartan South Midlands League outfit Bury after a disappointing display.

Allan Fenn’s Foxes made the trip to the Recreation Ground on the back of a 4-2 midweek win over Eton Manor to face hosts who are without a win in their first 12 matches in the Premier Division season and propping up the table.

But the visitors were made to pay for a slow start, as first-half goals from Courtney Clay and Harley Haag left them 2-0 down at the interval.

Ryan Wade then made it 3-0 to the home side in the second half, to leave Ilford with a mountain to climb.

And although veteran striker Chris Stevens added to his impressive career tally and Paul Clayton also found the net, the Foxes could not force an equaliser and found themselves dumped out.

Ilford will look to put the frustration behind them when they go back on the road to Stansted for a league fixture on Tuesday.

Ilford: Clark, Lane, Paliulis, Matthews, McLeavy, Nkosi, Thomas, Clayton, Stevens, Mtyanda, Edmunds. Subs: Hart, Mullings, Ramsey, Kanu, Solarin.


Broadfields United 2 London Bari 1

Below-par Bari crashed out after suffering their sixth defeat in seven outings since their extra-time win over Barkingside in the previous round.

The east Londoners travelled on the back of a 4-0 midweek defeat at Stansted and fell behind as Rex Kimona put the home side ahead.

But Darryl Morson levelled for the visitors, before making way for Jermaine Nicholson midway through the second half.

Marley Anderson-Richards netetd the winner for the home side, though, and Bari will look to end their poor run of form when they return to action at Erith & Belvedere in the London Senior Cup on Tuesday.

Bari: Boateng, Akpele, Appiah, Erhabor, Grassi, Kamara, Morson (Nichols 67), Mpalampa, Nishizawa, Richardson, Sonupe.


Sporting Bengal 0 Southall 3

Sporting Bengal boss Imrul Gazi admitted his side had a ‘bad day at the office’ as they crashed out at Mile End Stadium.

The east Londoners had won 6-2 when the two sides met in the competition previously, and returned to action after a 10-day break, since their 2-1 win over east London rivals Clapton.

But they lacked a cutting edge in front of goal this time as they failed to take a series of chances.

Southall, meanwhile, converted three of their opportunities to go through and Gazi tweeted: “Bad day at the office, created chances but that’s the difference. Good luck to Southall FC.”

After suffering a fourth defeat in six league and cup outings, Gazi’s men visit Takeley on Tuesday.
