Adam grabbed a superb second after the interval, but they were pegged back when the Minors scored straight from the kick off.

Newham United 5 Lonsdale 2

NEWHAM UNITED progressed to the semi-finals of the Trophyland Cup with a confident 5-2 victory over Division One side Lonsdale.

Four goals from Danny Child and one from Charlie Kerr were enough to see them through despite Lonsdale equalising twice in the second half.

Newham led 1-0 at half time thanks to Child, but the home side were pegged back by Lonsdale as they scored a penalty early in the second period.

Child was able to restore Newham's lead shortly afterwards, before Lonsdale equalised again.

However, there was no coming back for the visitors once Child scored twice more to take his season's tally to 27 goals.

Good work by Jermaine Stewart led to Kerr rounding off the win late on.

Newham United: Polley, Millar, Clarke, Koroma, Hoddy, McGuinness, Nott, Clarke, Kerr, Lewis, Child.

Subs: Sparowhawk, Hennessey, Stewart, Grimes, McGrath.
