PUBLISHED: 09:00 10 January 2018
Hackney Wick crashed out of the Gordon Brasted Memorial Trophy with a heavy 4-0 defeat to Takeley.
The Wickers crashed out of the cup competition in the second round while Takeley progressed into the quarter-final at the Old Spotted Dog.
Lew Roberts gave the visitors an early lead before this was quickly doubled by Jason Todd, and when Will Green added a third soon after the tie was pretty much over inside the opening half hour.
Matt Gill netted a late fourth to seal a fine win and set up a home quarter final tie against Hullbridge Sports.
Tony Ievoli’s men will now turn their attention back to the league campaign as they make the trip to high-flyers Basildon United on Saturday at the Ho Ho Stadium.
They still sit bottom of the table and will be hoping to cause an upset to help lift them off the foot of the Essex Senior League.
