ALL bar two Olympian teams made it through the first hurdle of the Essex Premier Cup on Saturday with the two teams that made an early exit doing so to fellow-Olympian outfits. Harold Hill’s three goals were not enough as they were beaten 5-3 by Old Chelmsfordians. While Ongar Town ended up losing 5-0 at the hands of Springfield.The result doesn’t tell the whole story as Premier Division Springfield had to battle hard against their Division Two opponents and only lead 1-0 at half-time thanks to an Adam Vyse penalty. David Wareham however came off the bench and rattled home a hat-trick before Louis O’Sullivan added a fifth with a sublime finish from 20 yards. Sungate won by the same score line at Tiptree Jobserve, opening the scoring in the early stages with a long range drive from David Whiting.Bobby Port added a second with a fine finish before a fine passing move that started from the keeper went through the whole Sungate side before being neatly hit home by Rorie McKenzie. Sungate lead 3-0 at half-time and added two further goals in the second period via a 25 yard free-kick from Spencer Pitfield and Danny Downer.Newbury Forest also enjoyed a successful away trip at Holland Res. as they went on a goal spree that saw them score six times whilst keeping a clean sheet at the other end. Brandon Burgess was their main man as he claimed a hat-trick and was joined on the score sheet by Alex Nicoll, Andrew Lane and Mostafa Abid.The win sets up a mouth-watering re-run of the 2013/14 Final as Newbury Forest have been drawn away to Kelvedon Hatch in the next round. Hannakins Farm needed extra-time before they could overcome Stanway Rovers Res with a 3-2 win. Toby meanwhile are through after a 4-1 win at Old Foresters. Redbridge Res. came unstuck as AFC Hornchurch U21s dished up a 3-0 win, while Weeley Athletic beat Boxted Lodgers 6-2.Last season’s runners-up, Manford Way, were knocked out at the 2nd Round stage, as Basildon Town registered a slender 1-0 win. Marcus Bowyers was the man that ended the Premier Division outfits interest in this season’s competition. Harold Wood Athletic made light work of Dagenham United running out 12-0 winners. May & Baker E.C. progress after a 6-1 win over Epping, a game in which their opponents gifted them two own goals. Oliver Bush, Richard Oxby, Conor Okus and Kiel Chandler added to the May & Baker tally. Liam Fitch scored the Epping consolation. Lee Atkinson scored Herongate Athletics’ consolation as they also lost by the same score line at the hands of White Ensign. Jonathan Wightman bagged four of the goals, with one apiece from Brett Munyard and Johnny Hilliard. Rayleigh Town progress after a 3-1 win over local rivals Benfleet. Tony Fraser, John Wheatstone and Ricky Evans were the marksmen.Canning Town were the only team to record a win on Saturday as goals from Shaun Farnum, Tom Phillips and Julian Edwards helped them beat Buckhurst Hill 3-1. Leigh Ramblers are still winless after they drew 3-3 with Kelvedon Hatch. Both teams have yet to taste defeat in the league, but are fast turning into draw specialists. Justin Hazell, Ben Munday and Luke Reid scored the Leigh goals but they remain in the relegation zone while Kelvedon Hatch, who scored via Ryan Parker (2) and Chris Neville, sit in mid-table having only won once against three draws. Frenford Senior and Bishops Stortford Swifts also shared a point after their game ended goalless.Catholic United move to the top of the table after a 4-3 win at Shenfield AFC. Brad Vaughan, Dave Collins, Craig Robert and Aaron Comerford score their goals while Shenfield AFC’s replied came from Sam Lock, James Brett and Ben Carroll. Galleywood move up to fourth after they came away from Great Baddow with a 3-0 victory. Thomas Watling scored twice with Adam Dowsett adding the other. Things are not going well for Hutton at the moment as they lost their fifth game in a row at Runwell Sports which keeps them rooted to the foot of the table. Aaron Pottle and Liam Sewell were the Runwell scorers in the 2-1 win, cancelling out Garan Hammerton’s effort for Hutton. Newham United also remain in the relegation zone without a win so far this term. More worryingly they are shipping goals and conceded seven at Snaresbrook on Saturday. Harry Brown lead the charge with a hat-trick, Bradley O’Donovan bagged a brace with Drew Barbiar and Daniel Tesfay scoring one apiece. Newham United scored twice themselves but are, like Hutton, now winless from five league games. London APSA picked up their first win of the campaign as goals from Jordan Malick and Bilal Bapu helped them beat Old Southendian 2-1. Ed Gould scored the Old Southendian goal.FC Hamlets move up to second after a comprehensive victory over Old Barkabbeyans. They won the game 6-0 with John Gilroy scoring a hat-trick. George Oakley scored a penalty with the other goals being claimed by Ishmael Carter and Jay Morris. Clifford Newby-Harris ripped the Ramsden Scotia defence to shreds as he scored four of Ryan’s goals in their 5-0 win. The other goal was scored by Malik Donaldson. James Lakey scores for Upminster but they remain in the relegation zone after a 3-1 reverse at Lakeside.Rayleigh Town Res. open up a three point lead after a 3-1 win at Debden Sports. Joe Pyne, George Vile and Ryan Cushway were their scorers, which cancelled out the Chris Charlombous strike. It was certainly a good afternoon for Tom Burke, who was making his debut for the Leytonstone United first team and went on to score all their goals in the 3-0 win over Broomfield, which was their first three points garnered so far this term. The win now moves them up to ninth. Dan Cann hit the target for Old Chelmsfordians Res. but Harold Wood Athletic Res. claim all the points in a 2-1 win. May & Baker E.C. Res. also win on the road, coming away from Roydon with a slender 1-0 win which moves them up to fourth.Essex Premier Cup 1st RoundHannakins Farm 3 Stanway Rovers Res. 2 (aet)Harold Hill 3 Old Chelmsfordians 5Holland Res. 0 Newbury Forest 6Old Foresters 1 Toby 4Springfield 5 Ongar Town 0Tiptree Jobserve 0 Sungate 5Redbridge 0 AFC Hornchurch U21s 3Weeley Athletic 6 Boxted Lodgers 2Senior League Cup 2nd RoundHarold Wood Athletic 12 Dagenham United 0Manford Way 0 Basildon Town 1May & Baker E.C. 6 Epping 1Rayleigh Town 3 Benfleet 1White Ensign 6 Herongate Athletic 1Premier DivisionCanning Town 3 Buckhurst Hill 1Frenford Senior 0 Bishops Stortford Swifts 0Leigh Ramblers 3 Kelvedon Hatch 3Division OneGreat Baddow 0 Galleywood 3London APSA 2 Old Southendian 1Runwell Sports 2 Hutton 1Shenfield AFC 3 Catholic United 4Snaresbrook 7 Newham United 2Division TwoFC Hamlets 6 Old Barkabbeyans 0Lakeside 3 Upminster 1Ramsden Scotia 0 Ryan 5Division ThreeDebden Sports 1 Rayleigh Town Res. 3Leytonstone United 3 Broomfield 0Old Chelmsfordians Res. 1 Harold Wood Athletic Res. 2Roydon 0 May & Baker E.C.
