Tower Hamlets went against the odds to progress in the Gordon Brastead Memorial Trophy with a 2-1 victory over Takeley.

Damian Briggs' outfit came from behind to seal the win with two second-half strikes and bag a place in the second round of the cup competition at Station Road.

The hosts Jason Todd found the back of the net to give them the lead and they held onto that until the half-time whistle.
