KO Cup – Round 2 – Week 7

Week 6 saw the first round of matches in the AM Print & Copy Sponsored Knockout Cup in the Shoestrings-Chargrill Sponsored Chippenham & District Sunday Football League.

Group A:

FC Box 4-3 Spires Athletic

Box Pick Up Win In Tight One

Spires Athletic will be wondering what they will have to do to get on the right side of one these thrillers they find themselves involved in on a weekly basis as they lost by the odd goal of 7 once again this time away at FC Box.

Spires actually found themselves in at the break with a slender 1-0 lead thanks to a Josh Bolwell strike.

Box had Adam Mitchell to thank for turning the game on its head as he scored 3 unanswered goals to make the scoreline 3-1 and gave Box what seemed like a cushion but this prompted them to maybe relax a little too much which allowed Toby Beattie in to make things interesting once again at 3-2.

But it was Mitchell once again who provided the pivotal moment in this tie as he pounced for his fourth goal of this exciting to restore the 2 goal buffer and despite Louie Lang leaving the tie on a tight rope for the final stages, Box held out for the 3 points.

Kingfisher FC 1-4 Pack Horse FC

Horse Too Strong For Fisher

Pack Horse picked up a valuable win at Sutton Benger Rec as they ran out 4-1 winners over Kingfisher.

It was Fisher who actually made the brighter start and deservedly took the when Ed Baldwin got his head to a Lee Fernandez corner and shortly after Baldwin had a glorious chance to make it 2 when put through by Lee Carey but he went too wide round goalkeeper Jack Williamson and he could not convert.

Parity would be restored before the break when Josh Madle struck to make it 1-1 at half time.

Horse would score 3 more unanswered goals through a Tyler Smith Brace and a James Bartlett effort to claim the 3 points in this group match.

British Lion FC 6-0 Warminster Athletic FC

Liam Mortimer grabbed 4 to add to a goal apiece for Dean Taccuso and Jamie Hall in a 6-0 thrashing.

Group B:

FC Devizes United 6-0 Royal Oak FC

United Too Strong For Oak

FC Lacock 6-0 Chippenham Icons

Fox & Hounds (Warminster) FC 4-1 Calne United

The winning run continues for the Foxes

A hard fought win against a physical Calne United side ensured Fox & Hounds stay unbeaten in their AM Print & Copy Cup group.

The initial exchanges were evenly balanced and it took 26 minutes for the Foxes to get off the mark. A well directed free kick 30 yards from goal from the foxes dead ball maestro Reece Collyer, which seemed like a well drilled machine, found the head of Steve (The Salmon) Corbin to put the Foxes 1 nil up, making that distinctive pinging noise as it bounces in off the right hand post.

The Calne United side still created chances by threading long balls over the top. The back line of Jamie Yard, Alan Hitchcock, George Ingram and Chris Fry keeping a solid back line by stopping the balls getting to their intended targets. On the 38th minute, from a quickly taken free kick, Calne United were able to take the initiative and catch the Foxes on the back foot and equalise through Adam Welch to make the score at the interval 1-1.

The next goal came 4 minutes after the restart when a corner was floated over into the Calne box by Reece Collyer and the Calne United captain was penalised for holding Adam Tester as he tried to head the ball. The referee didn’t need any time to make a decision and swiftly pointed to the spot with Reece Collyer calmly slotting home for 2-1.

In the 76th minute the Calne United goalkeeper, Sam Peacock decided he could carry the ball out of his box and take on Taylor Kitley and lost the ball, Jayson Stokes took no time to see the keeper scrambling back towards his goal and lobbed the ball into an empty net for 3-1.

Calne United started to get a bit more joy in the middle and forced a good save from Thomas Waterland to deny an in-swinging corner and only a few minutes later a Calne shot took a massive deflection off a Foxes defender to narrowly miss the right hand upright.

The corner that followed sparked a heated confrontation when a Sorin Cosmin Soreanu decided Dee Mackay was taking too long to give the ball back and wrestled him to the floor. a small melee ensued with Jamie Yard and the Soreanu both being sent off.

Calne had their tail up for the last quarter of the game but that tail stopping wagging when Jake Owen latched onto a long ball and controlled it well in the box whilst being pressed by the Calne defence. He was able to send both on-rushing Calne defenders to the shops and cut across the keeper to slot home to take the game away from Calne for the fourth and final goal in a 4-1 win.
