Sporting Bengal United progressed into the semi-final of the Peter Butcher Memorial Trophy with a 2-0 victory over league rivals Barkingside.

Goals from the returning Jay Knight and captain Kamarl Duncan sealed Imrul Gazi’s men progression in the cup competition at Cricklefield Stadium.

“All the best to Barkingside FC for the rest of the season - Jimmy and Co were great hosts as ever.”

Steve Carvell tweeted: “2-0 win, two assists and Jay Knight is back.”
