Clapton progressed into the Gordon Brasted Memorial Trophy semi-final after seeing off high-flying Essex Senior League outfit Basildon United with a 1-0 victory.

The Tons will now face either Takeley or Hullbridge Sports after bouncing back from Saturday’s 5-1 loss to Stansted to defeat the Bees at the Old Spotted Dog.

Jonny Fowell’s men were boosted by dual-registered players Johnny Ashman from Bowers & Pitsea and Romford’s Kai Bichard coming into the team.

The only goal came when a whipped in free kick was headed home by Dylan Ebengo and it was enough to inflict a rare defeat on the Bees, who also saw George Whitby sent off late on, as they exited the competition at the last eight stage.

Ebengo tweeted after the match: “Good 1-0 win always good to captain the side and keep a clean sheet even better when you score the winner.”

Clapton: Lopez, Miller, Santos, Ebengo, Bello, Long, Greenslade, Ashman, Campbell, Bichard, Akpele.

Subs: Henry, Ossai, Hill, Loblack.

Basildon United: Wheatley, Willis, Whitby, Phillips, Burgess, Barton, Spooner, Marsh, Adlington, Hornsley, Bowers.

Subs: Selby-Knight, Cumming, Chorley, Blackburn.
