Troy Deering scored a hat-trick as Shakespeare FC made light work of MDM to progress to the fourth round of the Dickie Davies Cup.

Joining them are Clapton Rangers, who put the disappointment of last week’s London FA Sunday Challenge Cup quarter-final defeat behind them to record a 2-1 win over FC Bartlett.

Nathan Scarborough and Ashley Taylor-Forbes were both on target for Clapton, but Bartlett’s Temi Abuoloto halved the deficit to make Rangers hold on for their victory.
