Stanway Villa 0 Tigers B 1

TIGERS under-13s produced a gutsy performance to reach the final of the Essex Cup.

Stanway, unbeaten all season, found Tigers hard to break down during a close encounter.

Tigers started the better and were dominant in midfield, with Luke O'Sullivan, Thomas Hughes and Jack Barraclough winning most battles and creating space for Tigers' front men.

Kemal Cetinay went close early on, but lacked power in his shot to trouble the Stanway goalkeeper, while the best chances fell to Johnathan Nzengo.

Stanway, to their credit, came out for the second half with more fight, but Tigers won it when Cetinay and O'Sullivan combined to net.

Tigers: Wells, O'Connell, Allman, G Winn, Nzengo, Dobson, Barraclough, Hughes, O'Sullivan, Cetinay, R Winn, Diya, Barker, Bailey, Merry.


Upney Tigers 5 UPR 1

UPNEY TIGERS under-15s took a step closer towards an unbelievable treble as they overcame UPR.

Already in the Essex Cup semis and League Cup final, Tigers were dominant. The scoring was opened by Jay Simmons before a diving header from Jordan Collins made it 2-0.

Simmons then glanced home a Ben Cox corner for 3-0 and Joshua Ambersley made it four from close range. Cox made it 5-0 with a fine goal from a flowing move.

With only seconds to go there was a consolation goal for UPR, but man of the match Robbie Gammaldi and Tigers were irresistible.

Upney Tigers: Puddick, Newall, Barclay, Moorton, Collins, Gammaldi, Chapman, Rutterford, Baker, Cox, Wallace, Simmons, Bundock, Ambersley.

Barking Colts 2 Chigwell 4

BARKING Colts under-15s were beaten by a strong Chigwell.

Colts fell behind early on, only for Joshua Whincup to net a glorious free-kick to level.

Colts' lack of concentration saw Chigwell storm into a 3-1 lead, but Whincup scored again.

There were also good performances from Joseph Clark and Leon Tyrrell was outstanding as Colts' replacement goalkeeper.

Barking Colts: Whincup, Palmer, Wiltshire, Brown, Sargent, Dimond, Blandford, Tyrrell, Bussey, Harvey, Douglas, Clark, Wilson, Ayilara, Barlow.

Tigers B 3 Parsonage Colts 4

PARSONAGE COLTS under-12s came out on top in this Division B clash with Tigers.

Colts went in front with a powerful header from Christian Pankui, though Tigers fought back to take a 2-1 half-time lead.

Pankui then scored his second and completed his hat-trick to make it 3-2 before Tigers levelled.

Tommy Ivers-Grant and man of the match Luke Bolton then combined well to set up Brendan Ocran for a stunning winner.

Parsonage Colts: Haim, Turner, Bolton, Weaver, Korhkut, Xhafa, Ivers-Grant, Pankui, Brown, Ocran, Alozie, Cooper, Plunkett, Dennett, Lowe.

Dagenham United 6 EMH 2

DAGENHAM UNITED under-11s crushed EMH in ruthless style.

The opening goal was scored by George Broughton in the first few seconds of the game, followed by one from Odafe Okaka.

EMH replied, but another goal from Okaka took the score at half time to 3-1, before Broughton netted once more.

Okaka pounced for his hat-trick, as did Broughton, to cap a memorable win for a battling Dagenham United.

Buckhurst Hill 1 Cobra 3

BATTLING Cobra under-10s defeated Buckhurst Hill in fine style.

A brilliant goal in the first few seconds from Callum Wastell set Cobra on their way and another fine goal from Ola-Dapo Smith doubled their lead.

Hill pulled one back, but just couldn't stop Cobra, who scored another courtesy of an own goal.

Man of the match was Wastell who was in fine form.

Cobra: Wastell, Smith, Hare, Ayoola, Adams, Marshall, Syer, Plumridge-Biggs, Benmouna, Vialls.

Riverside Rangers 0

Collier Row 2

RIVERSIDE RANGERS under-10s were beaten by an impressive Collier Row.

Two teams who know exactly how each other play, provided a great game for both sets of players and spectators.

Row pressured Riverside well at the start and the Riverside goalkeeper Gregg made some great saves in the first half to keep the scores level at the break.

In the second half, Riverside were slower out of the blocks than Row, who netted twice. Sudais Khan was man of the match.

Riverside Rangers: Sach, Thompson, Robery, Dukes, Khan, Johnson, Davies, Syal, Beckwith.
