Jamie O’Hara was pleased to see Jake Robinson lead by example in more ways than one as Billericay Town booked their place in the semi-finals of the Essex Senior Cup, report the Basildon Standard.

Robinson bagged a hat-trick as he wore the captain’s armband for the first time in Billericay’s thrilling 4-3 win over Isthmian North outfit Grays Athletic.

And O’Hara, who came off the bench and got his name on the scoresheet with a deflected free-kick, was keen to hail Robinson.

The Billericay player-manager said: “Jake is a leader.

“He is not the most vocal lad in the world, but he is a leader on the pitch.

“Jake scores goals, gets us points and he stepped up again.”
