Essex Senior Cup: Brentwood Town 2 Hornchurch 4

Hornchurch progressed into the next round of the Essex Senior Cup with a 4-2 victory over Isthmian North outfit Brentwood Town.

A brace from Chris Dickson and goals from George Saunders and Ronnie Winn sealed the win for the Urchins at the Brentwood Arena.

Mark Stimson's will now determine who they will face in the next round when the draw is made this evening.

Brentwood then took that 1-0 lead into the half-time break but it didn't last long as seven minutes into the second-half George Saunders levelled the score.

The young wide picked up the ball out wide, cut inside, and fired a shot into the top corner.
