On a very cold night at Billericay Town FC it was Little Thurrock Dynamos who got into their stride fastest immediately putting Met Police Chigwell on the back foot and on twelve minutes Terry Hornsby was surprised to find himself with time and room in the Met Police box to turn and put his side one up. After this Met Police perked up and pressed without making inroads into the opposition box, this was the pattern of play with few clearcut chances being made in a hard fought encounter. This changed on the half hour when Paul Cobb neatly cushioned the ball on his head before moving forward sidestepping three defenders before hitting the net to give Little Thurrock a 2-0 lead.  They held this until half time and almost from the restart increased their lead when Dave Moran cleverly slotted the ball home.  Met Police were finding the opposition defensive set -up very difficult to break down while leaving the odd hole in their own back line which on twenty-five minutes was exploited by a good run by Jason Mcnaney who fired home his sides fourth of the evening. That sealed the game for Little Thurrock who would have piled on the misery but for a couple of fine saves by Alan Moore in the Met Police goal one of which was from the penalty spot. Little Thurrock did manage to round off the evening with a fifth thanks to Micky Arnold who pushed forward and from the edge of the box found the bottom corner.
