Essex Senior Cup: AFC Hornchurch 3 Great Wakering Rovers 0

AFC Hornchurch progressed into the quarter-finals of the Essex Senior Cup with a 3-0 victory against Bostik North side Great Wakering Rovers.

Goals from Nana Boakye-Yiadom, Lewwis Spence and George Purcell helped inspire the Urchins through their fourth round clash at Bridge Avenue.

The visitors were reduced to 10-men after just 22 minutes when right-back Jason Ring made a two foot challenge on Jay Porter and he was shown the marching orders.

Urchins took advantage of that and 14 minutes later a fantastic crossfield ball fell to Porter, who picked out Boakye-Yiadom inside the box, and the attacker slid the ball home to make it 1-0.

In the 40th minute midfielder Spence doubled his side’s lead after smashing home a shot after Purcell had his original effort blocked.

They went into the half-time break 2-0 up and in full control of the match.

Rovers were then reduced to nine men in the 74th minute when Ollie Woodhouse picked his second yellow of the match for a late challenge on George Saunders as he looked to race down the wing.

Three minutes later Purcell made a good run, played the ball inside for Winn, who shoots but has his effort blocked.

The ball then fell to Purcell who blasted home to seal a 3-0 win and the club’s progress.
