Basildon Town were the day’s big hitters as they knocked Rochford Town to one side with a 9-2 victory. Sener Suavi helped himself to five of the goals; Keith King grabbed a hat-trick, with the other goal being supplied by Alfie Phillips. Dave Watson and Sean Chimba scored the Rochford consolations.

There was another hungry forward on show in the Shenfield AFC v Upminster tie. Unfortunately for Upminster Ronnie Hobbrough led the Shenfield charge, bagged five of the goals with Ben Carroll and Ben Absolon scoring apiece in the 7-1 success. Plenty of goals too in the Laindon Orient v Lakeside showdown – nine of them in fact with the home side notching six of them. Glen Jordan opened Laindon’s account in the 5th minute and added a second just before the half hour mark. Henry Ballard went on to score a brace in the second half with Ashley Blackburn and Adam Cole also getting their names on the score sheet. Drew Klessa-Smith actually scored a hat-trick for Lakeside, but in the end in proved to have been in vain.

A Jack Darby-Clarke brace plus goals from Darren Burrell and Bradley Read saw Corinthians beat Wakering Sports 5-2, with Ryan Curtis and Danny Pallett the Wakering scorers; FC Hamlets also scored five against Beacon Hill Rovers, whilst also keeping a clean sheet at the other end. Epping Town did likewise on their visit to Old Barkabbeyans, with Daniel Ezeorji (2), Tim Curtis, Liam Clifton and Chris Lockwood the marksmen. Snaresbrook beat Ramsden Scotia 4-1 courtesy of goals from Drew Barbier, Yasin Hammad, George Bacon and Ryan Barker-Francis.

Leigh Town secured a relatively easy passage into the next round after they overcome White Ensign Res. 4-0. Jed Ofori meanwhile fired Newbury Forest Res. into the next round as his double saw his side record a 2-1 win at Dagenham United, with Ashley Retter their scorer. . Tom Howe, Jordan Gregory and John Smithwick were the Runwell Sports scorers in a 3-1 win over May & Baker E.C. Res. The hosts scored their goal through Emmanuel Boateng. Newham United knocked Ryan out with a 2-0; Lamar Obinkwo and Richard Boah scored a goal apiece.
