DAVID Knight will be among a number of familiar faces when Tilbury make the trip to Bowers & Pitsea in the fourth round of the Essex Senior Cup tonight.

Having finished last term as the Isthmian North top goalscorer and got his hands on the title, Knight left Bowers in October.

The striker - along with the likes of Ryan Boswell, John Easterford and Marlon Agyakwa - will return to the Len Salmon Stadium looking to knock his former employers out of the Essex Senior Cup and Bowers boss Rob Small is relishing the challenge.

“David will be back at Bowers for the first time since his departure and I’m looking forward to seeing him again,” said Small.

“Tilbury have a number of ex-Bowers players in their squad and we know it will be a very difficult game because we have worked with a lot of them.

“There are a lot of familiar faces there that we are looking forward to seeing.

“The good thing is that every player that has left Bowers has left on good terms.

“As a result, I’m sure they are looking forward to seeing some of the players still at the club.”

Bowers were originally drawn to host National League South outfit Braintree Town at this stage of the competition.

However, the Iron were removed from the Essex Senior Cup after they were found guilty of fielding an ineligible player in their third round victory over Tilbury.

As a result, the Dockers were reinstated and they, along with Bowers, will be keen to be involved in the quarter-final draw taking place tomorrow.
