Barking are through to the semi-finals of the Gordon Brasted Memorial Trophy following a 3-2 win at home to Redbridge.

The Blues took the lead just before the half hour mark at Mayesbrook Park when top scorer James Peagram found the net from distance.

The Motormen, though, were able to restore parity with a stunning strike of their own as the teams went into the break level.

It seemed to be a night full of long-range efforts as James Jaconelli lashed home from 25 yards to put Barking back in front with around 20 minutes remaining.

Redbridge, however, remained undeterred and were able to level the score once more to set up a grandstand finale.

With less than 10 minutes remaining, Liam Burgess struck a perfect volley from just outside the area to put the Blues ahead for a third time and into the final four.

Barking’s opponents in the semi-finals will be Takeley after they beat Ilford 2-0 at home.

Both of Takeley’s goals came in the first half, with George Wappett twice teeing up the prolific Charlie Cole to score against the Foxes.

The Cricklefield club had a chance to pull a goal back late on after being awarded a penalty, but were unable to convert the spot kick.
