Tonbridge Angels crashed out of the FA Cup in the second qualifying round after going down 3-0 at Chelmsford City and seeing Tim Olorunda sent-off.

The hosts bossed the opening half with a snap-shot over the bar from Lewis Taylor all Tommy Warrilow's (pictured) side had to show for their efforts in the first 45 minutes.

With half-time looming the hosts snatched a deserved lead when a free-kick into the box was only half-cleared by Olorunda with the ball falling to Kezie Ibe who took a touch and slotted past keeper Lee Worgan.

The hosts put the result beyond doubt just five minutes into the second half when Sonny Miles failed to clear a cross, with Ibe again the beneficiary, firing past Worgan and into the bottom corner.

The clincher arrived a little over 15 minutes from time. Ricky Modeste's cross was headed past Worgan by Ben Judge, who was attempting to nod the ball back to his keeper, only to misjudge his attempt.

It could have been 4-0 on 76 minutes when Worgan fouled Anthony Cook in the box, however the Angels keeper denied Ibe his hat-trick with a low save to his left from the spot-kick.

There was still time for Olorunda to see red after collecting a second caution - the first sustained for dissent before he had even come off the bench.

Does the early FA Cup exit mean Tonbridge can now concentrate on their Blue Square Bet South form? Have your say below.
