Hitchin Town U18s were knocked out of the FA Youth Cup after a rollercoaster 6-4 defeat to Dagenham and Redbridge at Top Field.

The Daggers opened the scoring after two minutes when Luke Hurst headed in, but the home side replied a minute later with a Desejado Da Silva headed goal.

Dylan Florence rifled in for 1-2 on 18 minutes before Kieran Hamilton brought the Canaries level again with a scrappy goal on 37 minutes for 2-2.

Lanrewaju Balogun put the visitors 2-3 up in the 43rd minute, until Da Silva got his second in the 51st minute with a free-kick for 3-3.

Florence scored a penalty in the 55th minute but Charlie Moss got the Canaries final leveller for 4-4 in the 68th minute,

The visitors killed the game when Hirst put them into the lead again on 78 minutes, and Balogun chipped Canaries keeper Josh Mollison for 6-4.
