Under-21s win thriller

Greasious Obiji hit a hat-trick – including the match winner – as Blues under-21s won a nine goal thriller 5-4 against Sawbridgeworth Town reserves in the Essex Senior League Cup quarter-final, on Tuesday.

It was only 1-0 to the young Blues at half-time, but a frantic second half saw Obiji compete his treble along with goals from Harron and Jack Leachman seal a home semi-final.

Terrell Hunter, Josh Knight, Steven Moore and Andrew Pearce scored for Sawbo.

Matt Wadron’s side return to league action for the first time in a month on Saturday when they host a Woodford Town reserve side who are two places above them in tenth spot. Kick-off at the ProKit UK Stadium is 2.30pm and admission is £4 for adults.
