In the Fenton Cup, holders Chingford Athletic made safe passage through to the next round with an emphatic 11-0 win over Glendale with the self-proclaimed “Wall” seeing them to an eighth clean sheet in ten games. Michael Mignot bagged four goals with James Clarke also netting a hat-trick. Gary Murray’s double and strikes from Tom Pearce and David Livie completed the rout.
