Charlotte Critchley, Rebecca Smart, Phoebe Darwin and Alice Dolton were also on target in a strong performance.

Courtney O’Connor (penalty) and player of the match Georgina Box netted as the fifth team beat County Wanderers 2-0, while the sevenths ran out 7-0 winners over Thurrock thirds.

Dane Lopez and Amy Ballard scored twice each, with Emilie O’Brien, Fran Jarvis and Ruby Beardsall also on target.

Rachel Farmer’s goal was only a consolation as the eighth team lost 4-1 to Upminster fifths, while Hannah Conway netted as the ninth team were edged out 2-1 by Romford seconds.

The men beat West Herts seconds by the same margin, with goals from man of the match Ewan Duffin and Ben Gregory, but the thirds lost 4-2 to Clacton, as Mike Hazlewood and George Fall found the target.

Joe Williams (2), Ross Hannah, Alex Hommerson and Dan Moore led the fourths to a 5-0 win over Havering seconds, but the fifths lost 3-2 to Rochford after Jack Owen and James Smith struck.

Ben Tucker’s goal earned the sixth team a 1-1 draw at Maldon seconds, while the sevenths shared four goals with Brentwood fourths, with Alastair Greenless and George Winter scoring.
