Billericay Town turn attentions to an FA Trophy push as they host Tooting & Mitcham tomorrow (Saturday, 3pm kick-off) at the AGP Arena.

The Blues will face fellow Bostik Premier Division outfit in the first qualifying round of the cup competition as they bid to progress into the second round.

Glen Tamplin’s go into the Trophy tie on the back of a huge 7-3 victory against League One outfit Southend United in the third round of the Essex Senior Cup on Tuesday evening.

Hat-tricks from Billy Bricknell and Jake Robinson, as well as a goal from Dan Walker was enough to help them progress in the competition.

The Shrimpers travelled to Billericay with a squad that included eight players that have played in their first team this season but they were punished for failing to take their chances with Theo Robinson wasting three clear-cut chances.

The hosts had no problem in front of goal and found themselves 1-0 up after four minutes when a deep right cross from Daniel Walker was volleyed back across goal by Bricknell, enabling Robinson to volley the ball home from six yards.

Billericay doubled their lead in the ninth minute, with Bricknell stabbing home from inside the six yard box, after goalkeeper Nathan Bishop had failed to hold a header from a corner.

Southend got back into the game in the 15th minute as Jermaine McGlashan’s deep wing cross was neatly controlled by Ranger before he fired a low shot into the bottom right corner.

Bricknell then restored his side’s two goal cushion in the 23rd minute from the spot after new signing Andre Olukanmi was brought down.

The visitors hit back to make it 3-2 early in the second-half when McGlashan netted from the spot.

It was soon 4-2 when Bricknell completed his hat-trick in the 52nd minute.

United substitute Norman Wabo got on the score sheet two minutes after coming on in the 64th minute to make it 4-3.

The Blues hit back with two goals in the space of just three minutes as Robinson netted in the 70th minute before Walker found the net a minute later to make it 6-3.

Robinson then put the nail in Southend’s coffin as he completed his hat-trick in the 80th minute.
