McIntosh opened the scoring as he rounded the keeper after being picked out by Zatash Ali inside the box before Coxi-Sebastiao made it 2-0 as he let fired a rocket of a shot into the net after a ball in from midfielder Steven Carvell.

McIntosh then stretched Bengal’s lead to 3-0 before Leyton were awarded a penalty but goalkeeper Richie Robbins denied the effort.

Carvell then played in McIntosh once again who fired home to complete his hat-trick before the hosts finally got themselves on the score sheet.

Leyton Athletic then added another to reduce the score to 4-2 before McIntosh netted his fourth of the match.

Coxi-Sebastiao then put the game to bed as he fired in a sixth to seal the three points for Bengal.

Imrul Gazi’s side will now face West Essex in the Errington Challenge Cup on Wednesday evening.
