NEWHAM United advanced into the Bill Nolan Memorial Cup semi-finals with two goals from Danny Childs and one from Alex Read.

Top-scorer Childs rounded the Coral goalkeeper to put Newham ahead, before home goalkeeper Alan Austen came to the rescue with a penalty save.

Alex Read then doubled Newham's advantage with his fifth goal in three games, before Charlie Kerr was brought down and allowed Childs to grab his second from the spot.

Coral scored a late consolation penalty, but it was too little too late as Newham progressed.

Newham: Austen, Millar, J Clarke, Koroma, Grimes, Nott, McGuinness, O Clarke, Kerr, Read, Childs, Hoddy, Polley, Sparrowhawk, Lewis.
