HOLLAND FC are through to the third round of the Essex Senior Cup after an excellent 2-1 victory at Tendring neighbours Little Oakley.

Paul Phelan's side netted early in each half to ensure their name will be in the hat for the next round, with the draw taking place on September 25.

It was a brilliant result for the Eastcliff side, who had previously eliminated Ilford.

And it came on the back of an exciting 3-3 draw at Burnham Ramblers, in Thurlow Nunn League first division south on Saturday.

Keelan Sorrell, Jimmy Webb and substitute Markel Greenidge scored their goals at Leslie Field.

Holland host Lopes Tavares on Saturday and then have another home game on Tuesday, against Ipswich Wanderers in the League Challenge Cup.
