Barkingside fell out of the BBC Essex Senior Cup yesterday, losing an entertaining Preliminary Round tie 3-2 at Cricklefields to Hollland.


After a goalless first-half, which presented 'Side with some chances, the game came alive after half-time.

Holland came out of the blocks brilliantly after the break. Goals from Ryan Mahon (56 and 58 minutes) and Harry Willoughby (66 minutes) putting the visitors firmly in control.

To their credit 'Side didn't roll over and fought back in a thrilling ending to the game. First Dan Jones scored on 76 minutes and just six minutes later Joe Gent scored to make it 2-3.

Sadly 'Side couldn't find an equaliser, to take the game to penalties and fell to defeat.

Despite losing, the Sky Blues showed character in and will look to bounce back with good results in the league. Holland will now face either Benfleet or Wivenhoe Town in the First Round of the competition.

'Side are next in action away to title-contenders Halstead Town on Saturday 23rd October. Kick-off for that match is at 3pm.
