Daggers assistant pleased with display from youngsters in Essex Senior Cup win

Warren Hackett was pleased with the impact substitute Goldy Capela made after coming off the bench in Dagenham & Redbridge’s 6-0 win over Basildon United in the Essex Senior Cup.

Christian Doidge put Daggers ahead in the second minute of the match against the Essex Senior League side while Matt McClure and Joss Labadie also struck in the first half.

The young Capela came on as a substitute in the 60th minute and teed McClure up for his second before the former Wycombe Wanderers man completed his hat trick from the penalty spot after Kane Ferdinand was fouled.

Capela completed the rout with a well taken goal from 20 yards two minutes from time to seal Daggers’ progress in the competition.

The striker is not the first Dagenham youngster to make an impression on the tournament, with Jodi Jones coming to prominence during last year’s edition, and Hackett was pleased with Capela’s contribution.

“It was nice for Goldy, it was his first appearance for the first team,” said Hackett. “He’s played in a couple of development games and has been on loan so it was nice for him to get out there and get some minutes. Scoring a goal was great for him.”

Another bright young thing to shine in the win over the Bees was Jake Mulraney, who had a hand in all three of the hosts’ first half goals.

The winger looked a constant menace throughout with his pace and skill looking particularly menacing, drawing fouls from the opposition defence.

One thing that was lacking, however, was a goal although it was not for a want of trying from Mulraney who saw several efforts go wide of the posts.

Despite that, Hackett was still pleased with what he saw from the young loanee and was delighted the strong tackles did not put him off his stride.

“It was a real test for Jake because playing for QPR under-21s, he’s never going to come up against anything like he did against Basildon,” added Hackett.

“There were ferocious tackles flying in everywhere, but fair play to him, he kept wanting the ball and looking to skip past people. That’s the only way to answer it.”
