Clapton CFC progressed to the third round of the Essex Premier Cup with a 2-1 win over Runwell Sports on Saturday.

The opposition, who play a step below Clapton in the Essex Olympian League Division One, struggled to contain their East London visitors.

You may also want to watch:

One corner fell to defender Dean Bouho, who fired it through a pack of bodies, and winger Josh Adejokun showed great reactions to flick the ball over the diving Runwell keeper for an early opening goal.

Clapton's second came from a corner as well as left-back Justin Cummins' delivery caused chaos, eventually dropping to Fama Sangare, who popped it into the corner.

But a killer third goal did not come and Runwell began to grow in confidence which saw them reduce the deficit when Joe Olley squeezed a shot home from a tight angle.

The Essex side pushed for a late equaliser, but Clapton held on to book a home tie against Leigh Town in the next round.
