Bond hat-trick helps U's book final place
Colchester United booked their place in this season's Essex Senior Cup Final with a comfortable 4-0 win over Ryman League Premier side Concord Rangers.
A hat-trick from midfielder Andy Bond and another goal from youngster Drey Wright helped the U's secure a place in the final against Canvey Island.
All of Colchester's goals came in the first half and Bond also missed a penalty, after Kayode Odejayi had been fouled in the area.
Colchester reserve-team boss Richard Hall fielded an experienced side, which also included the likes of Kem Izzet, Matt Heath and Michael Rose, as the U's breezed through to the final.
Colchester United: Cousins; Hamilton, Heath, Aldred, Rose; Wright, Bond, James, Izzet, Coker; Odejayi.
