FA Trophy: Margate 2 Barking 0

Barking crashed out of the FA Trophy with a 2-0 defeat to Isthmian Premier Division outfit despite a strong effort away from home.

Goals from Adem Ramadan and Elliott Reeves on the stroke of half-time killed the game off and meant Jay Saunder's men went on to progress at Hartsdown Park.

Barking took the match to a replay after holding Margate to a 0-0 draw a few days earlier at Mayesbrook Park but couldn't pull off anymore heroics.
