There was Cup action on offer this weekend with games in the Peter Butcher Memorial Trophy and Errington Challenge Cup. Harlow Town Res. got things off on Friday evening as they entertained Sporting Bengal United. The result went the way of the Premier Division outfit as goals from Kaleem Luthra, Bobby Redwood, Jason Ngandu and a returning Steve Carvell saw Harlow Town Reserve eliminated. Tim Strike and Romain DoRogerio notched the Harlow replies. The other scheduled game on Friday evening between Aveley Res and West Essex was postponed due to the unfortunately death of a young Aveley player over the Christmas period.


Onto Saturday and high flying Hullbridge Sports were knocked out of the Errington Challenge Cup by a rampant Hoddesdon Town. Joss Lillis opened the Hoddesdon account in the 3rd minute; Connor Bolton and Kane Lowe added to the tally before the hosts were able to pull one back via Nathan Scarborough in the 25th minute. But Aiden Critchley then notched to see Hoddesdon leading 4-1 at the break and a further goal was added in the 64th minute as Lillis closed the show on a resounding Hoddesdon victory.


Meanwhile Barkingside Res. brushed Southend Manor aside in the Peter Butcher Memorial Trophy; the 5-1 win including a hat-trick from Carl Patten. Darren Seymour and Ishmael Raymond were the other Barkingside scorers, with Mark Frostick’s goal against his former club proving to be a mere consoalation for his new one. Tower Hamlets didn’t go the same way though, they made sure they ended the challenge of the Reserve Division team they had to face and duly despatched Grays Athletic Res. 4-1. Yoan Edoukou, Suibo Balde, Montel Williams and Ezekiel Kamara the Tower Hamlets scorers; Manraj Phagura scored the Grays reply. Ilford last week lost 3-0 at home to Clapton in the league. The Foxes went and gained revenge on Clapton this weekend in the Peter Butcher Memorial Trophy winning the tie 2-1. Alexander Cathline handed Ilford the lead in the 17th minute but Leon Lewis replied for the Tons just on the half hour. But the game was then won by Ilford fifteen minutes from time when Lamarr Douglas fired home from the spot. The other game saw Tiptree Jobserve Res. eke out a 1-0 win over Saffron Walden Town Res. with Liam Whitehead supplying the goal.
