Barking have progressed into the first qualifying round of the FA Cup with a 2-0 victory over Isthmian North outfit Heybridge Swifts.
A brace from David Fallah helped Justin Gardner’s side to seal the victory in their first competitive fixture of the new season at Mayesbrook Park.
Forward Fallah broke the deadlock in the 28th minute to give the Blues a lead in the early stages of the encounter.
They held onto that lead until the half-time break with a controlled performance and then doubled the lead in the 59th minute through the former Staines Town man Fallah as he grabbed his second of the match.
