Redbridge crashed out of the London Senior Cup in the first round with a 2-1 defeat to Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division side Cockfosters.

The Motormen got off to a bright start and found themselves 1-0 up early on but were pegged back with two late goals from the home at Chalk Lane.

After an early goal from Ricky Eaton’s side Toby Omotoshu drove a shot into the back of the net from 20 yards in the 69th minute.

They then put the nail in the coffin for the visitors as Adam Murad’s free-kick was parried to Jamie Stephens who swept the ball home to seal a 2-1 win in the 86th minute.

Cockfosters will now travel to Wingate and Finchley in the next round of the London Senior Cup.

Elsewhere, neighbours Barkingside continued their poor start to the Essex Senior League with a fifth consecutive defeat in the league as they fell short and ended up losing 1-0 to Sawbridgeworth Town.

The Robins are now tenth after an early Daryl Doolan strike saw them seal the three points at Crofters End.
