BBC Essex Premier Cup

There were the usual shock results in the 4th Round of the BBC Essex Premier Cup with Old Southendian’s 3-1 victory over Frenford being the pick of them. The hosts may have climbed to the summit of the Premier Division but found their opponents were reading from a different script. Sam Jones, Matt Wilson and Jon Staines scored the Old Southendian goals which cancelled out Luke Woodward’s goal for the hosts. Shenfield AFC also caused an upset as they beat Little Oakley Res. 1-0. Will Marlowe’s extra time goal proved to be the winning goal and the Division One team now go into Wednesday’s Quarter Final draw. Joining them will be Catholic United who needed extra time before running out 5-1 winners over Witham Town Res. A George Saunders brace plus a strike form Chris Neville saw Kelvedon Hatch overcome Hutton 3-0. Buckhurst Hill went on a goal spree at Snaresbrook. The game was effectively won in the first half where Buckhurst Hill went in at the break three goals to the good. They went on to win the game 8-0 with Nathan Sollosi notching a hat-trick, while Jose Espinosa scored twice; the other marksmen were Tyriq Soloman, Sam Sollosi and Keaton Moore. Petrit Elbi scored twice in May & Baker E.C.’s 3-2 win over White Ensign. Conor Okus scored the other May & Baker goal, cancelling out Liam Sewell’s brace for White Ensign in this all-Olympian Premier Division encounter. Manford Way are also into the last eight after a 2-1 win at Old Chelmsfordians. Sam Coe and Julian Edwards bagged the goal. Sungate however crash out as they found Waltham Abbey Res. in rampant mood.  Goals from Callum Maltese, Ellis Lentil, Yasseir Nazor and Danny Haigh saw the Essex Senior League Reserves Division high fliers win the game 4-0.
