Upminster men’s firsts collected a routine 6-0 win at home to Cambridge City thirds in East Division One.

Jamie O’Dell opened the scoring via a short-corner drag flick, while Russell Murphy soon added to the lead when driving forward from midfield and crashing a shot past the keeper.

The third came courtesy of an Ollie Cipa miss-hit that found its way to Lyndon Ford, who smashed home from close range.

Ford’s second and Upminster’s fourth also came from a similar distance, albeit a much more deliberate pass.

O’Dell added the fifth, beating half the Cambridge defence before slotting past the on-rushing keeper, before the final goal cane courtesy of trademark Cipa drag-flick.

Upminster will hope for another comfortable win this Saturday when they make the trip to Broxbourne.

Next up for the seconds is a home match against their Crostyx counterparts on Saturday.

In Essex Division One, Upminster’s thirds secured a 3-1 success at home to Wapping fifths.
