AC Milano were knocked out of the Essex Combination Premier Cup by Senior Division side Belfry after a 4-2 defeat.

Lukman Hasan and Kamran Iqbal missed good chances early on, before Belfry took the lead from the spot.

The hosts struck twice more before the break, with goalkeeper Ehsan Afzal booked for a foul, and added a fourth early in the second half to leave Milano with a mountain to climb.
