BARKING KNOCKED OUT OF LONDON SENIOR CUP
Barking exited the London Senior Cup at its first hurdle after a 2-0 defeat to Ryman South side Greenwich Borough.
Greenwich opened the scoring after 13 minutes as Kaka Dembele capitalised on a soft header by Bless Ferguson to lift the ball over Bowles. It was 2-0 after 36 minutes as Bowles failed to clear a long ball and Francis Babalola snuck in to tap the ball home.
Barking stepped up in the second half as they looked to get back into the game but they were met with good saves by George Kamurasi. Kamurasi had to be on top to deny Jay Knight and Dan Gilchrist on separate occasions. Greenwich thought they had a third in injury time but their counter-attack was disallowed for offside.
