Takeley boss Duncan Easley was left disappointed in his side as they bowed out of the FA Cup with an extra-preliminary round 2-1 defeat to near neighbours Stansted on Saturday.
The game, played at Bishop’s Stortford’s Woodside Park ground, saw Stansted 2-0 up at the break with a brace from Ollie Fortune.
Takeley could only register a consolation through Jack Friend late in the second half as hopes of a possible cup run fizzled out.
Easley told the Dunmow Broadcast: “The cup game was disappointing, we didn’t play that well and gifted them two goals which gave us too much to do.
“I thought we’d have a good chance, but we just didn’t perform.
You may also want to watch:
“We had a lot of possession in the second half, but didn’t create too much.
“We are lacking a cutting edge at the moment.
