ESSEX SENIOR LEAGUE newcomers Bethnal Green United smashed injury-ravaged Barking in a one-sided game at Mayesbrook Park on Saturday.

Barking actually started well, but the visitors scored their opening goal with their first attack.

Daniel Sabaroche ran through the home defence and hit a powerful shot which Chris Clark did well to get to, but was unable to prevent it crossing the line.

In the 20th minute, Marlon Campbell charged through again and made no mistake to double his side's lead.

He could have notched a second when he broke free again and fired towards the far corner, only to see his shot hit the post and rebound across the goal.

United demonstrated their eagerness by emerging from the dressing room five minutes early for the second half and almost scored immediately on resumption, but were denied by a fine Clark save.

However, three minutes into the second half, Campbell made it three with a free header which looped over the goalkeeper.

In the 66th minute, Barking pulled a goal back, as a ball over the defence by Darren Spinks found Ruel Sandiford, who finished calmly for his second goal in successive games.

Clark then made a good one-handed save and came out quickly to defuse another dangerous situation, but had no chance when in the 74th minute the speedy Campbell finished well for his third goal and United's fourth of the afternoon.

Barking: Clark, Stone, Walsh, Spinks (Tungate 75), Sargeant, Adejokun (Greenwood 58), Small (Bennett 87), Hopkins, Steadman, Sandiford, Offei.

Subs: Borthwick, Dickinson. Attendance: 45.
