Colchester United 3 Thurrock 2

The U’s rounded off a good day, which included keeper Sam Walker signing an 18-month permanent contract from Chelsea, by beating Thurrock 3-2 in the quarter-finals of the Essex Senior Cup tonight.

The U’s were 2-0 up at half-time, thanks to an opening goal from Macauley Bonne, who then set up Freddie Ladapo with the second.

Callum Harrison made it 3-0 early in the second half, before Thurrock responded with goals from substitute Loui Hazelwood and Ross Wall.

But the U’s held on to set up a semi-final date with Concord Rangers.

COLCHESTER: Cousins, Olufemi, O’Donoghue, Sanderson (sub Andrews, 29), Kent, Harrison, Szmodics, Ladapo, Curtis (sub Lapslie, 76), Bonne, Sembie-Ferris.
