Reserves Round-Up

It was the 2nd Round of the BBC Essex Premier Cup on Saturday and as usual it offered up its usual thrills and spills. Grays Athletic made progress at the expense of Great Wakering Rovers in an all- ESL affair that ended in a 2-o win for Grays with Rivaldo Nunes scoring both goals. Redbridge also progress after a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Arlesford Colne Rangers that saw a goal apiece from Jacob Dingli, Ince Ryan and Yusuf Olajide. Hullbridge Sports however crash out of the competition after a 7-0 defeat at the hands of Great Baddow.  A brace from Anthony Fox with Dean Merrett also adding a goal was not enough to see Heybridge Swifts through as Old Chelmsfordians went on to win the game in extra time 4-3. A Max Hall hat trick; a brace from Oliver Green and a Shane Holyland strike ensured that Rochford Town went through at the expense of Burnham Ramblers Res who scored twice via Edison Tereziu but ended up on the wrong end of a 6-2 score line. Sungate also knocked out an Essex Senior League opponent as they entertained Stansted and then sent the Airportmen  packing with a 5-1 defeat.  Tyrell Bull, Alfie Branch and Terrell Hunter hit the target for Takeley but  strikes from Antoine Fontaine, Boateng Agyemang, Josh Woodcock and Dominic Herbert saw Snaresbrook through with a 4-3 away victory.
