Hornchurch, Romford bow out
Essex Senior Cup defeat for duo
Hornchurch were left fuming after bowing out of the Essex Senior Cup with a 4-1 defeat at League One Colchester last night.
Urchins saw Andy Tomlinson controversially sent off five minutes before half-time, with the hosts already 2-0 up.
Tomlinson was dismissed for a challenge on Lloyd James, as referee Crysell wrongly considered him to have elbowed the Colchester player.
Bradley Hamilton had opened the scoring from a James corner on 11 minutes, as his near-post flick looped over Joe Woolley.
