Barking crashed out of the Velocity Trophy on penalties to Bostik North league rivals Brentwood Town.

The Blues went 2-0 down in the opening 15 minutes but a brace from captain Abs Seymour took the game to extra time before they lost 5-4 on penalties at Mayesbrook Park.

Town’s Tony Stokes opened the scoring in the 10th minute before Kojo Apenteng doubled his side’s lead a minute later.

Seymour clawed one back in the 15th minute to reduce the deficit to 2-1 and they held that score line until half-time.

The midfielder then bagged his second of the night in the 51st minute to level the score after a slow start from his side.

Both sides then searched for a winner but failed to find it, sending the match into penalties, where they lost 5-4 after a strong comeback.

They will now return to league action when they welcome Maldon & Tiptree to Mayesbrook Park this weekend.
