Colchester United are out of the Essex Senior Cup after losing 4-3 at Blue Square Bet South side AFC Hornchurch.

A U's team featuring the likes of Andy Bond, Matt Heath, Ben Coker and new loan signing George Porter bowed out of the county competition at the quarter-final stage.

Goals from Freddie Ladapo, Alex Gilbey and an own goal by the Urchins' Reiss Noel were not enough to prevent Colchester from being eliminated from the competition.

Colchester will check on the fitness of winger Jack Compton, who limped out of the tie in the first half.
