It proved to be a bad night on the road for Barkingside and Redbridge as both fell to Ryman North defeats.

Gursel Gulfer’s Barkingside travelled to Theobalds Lane to face Cheshunt and got off to a terrible start as Jason Hallett netted after only two minutes.

There was no change to the scoreline until just before the hour, when Marcus Milner doubled Cheshunt’s lead and Gulfer sent new signing Tyrone Scarlett on for his debut soon after.

Hallett hit his second goal of the night on 63 minutes and Luke Marshall compounded Barkingside’s miserable evening with Cheshunt’s fourth six minutes from time.

Barkingside turn their attentions to the FA Trophy this weekend as they visit league rivals Tilbury.

Barkingside: Behcet, Adebayo, Hayes (Abitogun 66), Wright, Spencer, Wren, Lataaya, Dove (Scarlett 59), With, Odegi-Uzokwe, Nzengo. Unused subs: Gray, Salmon, Heard.


Redbridge fell to their 11th successive defeat in all competitions at Chadfields.

Motormen had put up a brave fight at leaders Cray on Sunday, before two late goals gave the final scoreline some extra gloss for the hosts.

But they were chasing the game from the 17th minute onwards against the Dockers after one of their former players, Emiel Aiken, netted for the home side.

Kurt Smith doubled Tilbury’s lead on 55 minutes and Harry Cook made it 3-0 on the hour before Redbridge substitute Sam Williams was shown a red card.

Smith struck again eight minutes later before making way for Francis Babalola, but the hosts saw Conor Mead given his marching orders with 12 minutes remaining.

Daniel Jones grabbed a last-minute reply for Motormen, but it was little consolation in another losing cause.

Defeat leaves them hovering just above the bottom three, having now conceded 47 goals in 12 matches.

And joint bosses Dave Ross and Ricky Eaton will now try to lift their players for their FA Trophy trip to Arlesey Town on Saturday.

Redbridge: Avery, Bansende (Cornelius 65), Alexandrou, Dorgu, Parish, Coxi-Sebastfao, Gent, Kabashi, Ogboin (Good 65), Jones, Drake. Unused subs: Knight, Francis, Williams.
