FA Youth Cup fourth round: Ipswich Town under-18s 2 (Lankester 15, 82) Dagenham & Redbridge under-18s 1 (Bonds 11)

Dagenham & Redbridge under-18s are out of the FA Youth Cup after a 2-1 loss at Ipswich Town in the fourth round.

The young Daggers had progressed through five rounds to reach that stage, having started in the second qualifying round.

At the Tractor Boys’ Portman Road ground, it was the Essex club who took the lead in the 11th minute.

Midfielder Elliot Bonds was played through in goal, before calmly tucking the chance away.

Daggers’ lead lasted just four minutes, though, with Ipswich levelling through Jack Lankester from the spot.

With eight minutes left in the match, there was late heartbreak for Daggers when Lankester found the net again.

Micah Hyde’s young team were unable to find an equaliser in the minutes that remained as they went out of the cup.

But the youngsters can be proud of their efforts after making the fourth round for the first time in Daggers’ history.

Ipswich: Ware, Crowe, Clements, El Mizouni, Marshall, Ndaba, Dobra, McGavin (c), Lankester, Foudil, Cahill.

Subs: Wilton, Egan, Knight, Hughes, Vega.

Daggers: Chapman, Turvey, Alici, Gallagher, Lee, Agboola (c), Florence, Bonds, Balogun, Hyde, Hirst

Subs: Naija, Salis, Agboola, Williams.
