There were some fine results for a selection of Suffolk and North-East Essex sides in the extra preliminary round of the FA Cup, held over the weekend.
FRAMLINGHAM TOWN had enjoyed a head start on the rest by recording a 3-1 win at Hackney Wick on Friday night. It was evenly poised at 1-1 early on until goals from Danny Smith (26) and Cyrus Thorpe (65) saw the Suffolk visitors through to the next round, where they will be on the road again at Basildon.
A hat-trick from Josh Mayhew was the highlight of STOWMARKET TOWN'S 6-0 thrashing of hosts Clapton. Christy Finch bagged a brace and Joe Jefford scored the other.
FC CLACTON notched an impressive 3-0 home win over St Margaretsbury. Mekhil McKenzie scored early on, before second-half headers by Jack Clowsley (68) and Chris Ribchester (88) sealed the win.
STANWAY ROVERS were 2-1 winners at Hullbridge Sports. An in-form Jordan Blackwell gave Stanway a 16th minute lead, which was doubled by Tom Holdstock on 52 minutes. Timonthy Monsheju pulled a goal back via a penalty (82).
