Clapton progressed into the quarter-finals of the London Senior Cup as they secured a penalty shoot-out win against Erith Town.
The 10-men Tons battled back to make it 4-4 and send the game into penalties where they won 4-3 against the Southern Counties East League Premier Division at the Erith Sports Stadium.
They will now face either Tooting & Mitcham or Harrow Borough in their quarter-final tie.
Defender Dylan Ebengo tweeted after the match: “What a win in the London cup, longest 120 minutes I’ve played, especially when you go down to 10 men in the 80th minute and are 4-3 down in extra time with two minutes to go.
“To captain the side to a fantastic penalty win, I’m so proud of every single player today.”
Lanre Vigo also tweeted: “My body is finished but honestly it was worth it, proud of all the boys that played for Clapton Football tonight, with God, hunger and desire you can do the impossible.”
