Jarvis Monk made two saves in the shootout as Stansted beat Wivenhoe Town 4-1 on penalties in the first round of the Buildbase FA Vase on Saturday.

Michael Salako gave the 1984 winners an 80th-minute lead at Hargrave Park, but George Hart equalised six minutes later for the visitors from Thurlow Nunn League, First Division South.

But it was the hosts' day as goalkeeper Monk produced two penalty saves as they took the honours in the shootout.

The Airportmen, who reached the third round in 2019-20, face Thurlow Nunn League opposition again in the second round away to Premier Division side Fakenham Town. The tie is scheduled for Saturday November 20.

Stansted went into the game on the back of a 9-2 drubbing of Sporting Bengal United in the Essex Senior League, Premier Division last Wednesday (Oct 20).

Salako, John Clarke and Michael Mignot bagged braces and were joined on the score sheet by Daniel Okah, Jack Mitchell and Luke Hornsley.

In the Premier Division on Saturday, Takeley were 4-1 winners at home to Southend Manor thanks to strikes from Elliott Long, Kieran Southgate, Glen O'Hanlon and Charlie Allum.

Sawbridgeworth Town let a two-goal lead slip as efforts from Harry Davison and Billy Purdy were worth only a point in a 2-2 draw at Sporting Bengal, and Bishop's Stortford's tenants Enfield were held to a goalless draw by visitors St Margaretsbury.

Takeley were knocked out of the BBC Essex Senior Cup last Wednesday by West Essex. The preliminary-round tie ended 2-2 – Long and Carl Mullings netting for the hosts – before the visitors triumphed 4-2 on penalties.

Last Tuesday (Oct 19), Jamie Cureton's double and an effort from Louie Johnson earned Enfield a 3-0 win at Hoddesdon Town in the first round of the Herts Senior Cup.
