KO Cup – Round 3 – Week 8

Week 8 mostly saw another consecutive round of AM Print & Copy Sponsored Knockout Cup in the Shoestrings-Chargrill Sponsored Chippenham & District Sunday Football League.

Group A:

FC Box 3-2 British Lion FC

Another Close Victory For Box

FC Box maintained their 100% record to their Knockout Cup campaign as they edged another tight affair against British Lion by 3 goals to 2.

Spencer Dymond-Hall kept up his current hot streak as he opened the scoring and Box looked very comfortable when Ben Wicken added a second and they went in at the break with a 2-0 scoreline.

However, Lion hit back and the game was back level through goals from Glyn Rowles and Robbie Whyte.

But there was time for the match to swing back in Box’s favour and Adam Mitchell was the hero scoring the final goal of the game to put Box in a great position to reach the knockout stages of the competition.

Pack Horse FC 1-14 AFC Melksham

Melksham Back With Huge Win

After a week off with no fixture you could have forgiven AFC Melksham being a bit sluggish when returning to action but it turned out to be quite the opposite and they were clearly champing at the bit as the came away with a stunning victory over Pack Horse who are certainly no mugs that is for sure.

There will be no surprise that Rhys Talmash was amongst the scorers and he helped himself to no no less than half of the 14 goals that were scored by his team on the day.

A plethora of players chipped in with singles and they were, Danny Harrison, Jordan Kirk, Zac Hillier, Jack Baker, Jack Woolsgrove, Jack Broom and one goal for goalkeeper Adam Dhimsa meant that the picking the ball out of the net from Ollie Deane was not the only action of the day for him in a 14-1 win.

Warminster Athletic FC 4-1 Kingfisher FC

Athletic With KO Cup Upset

Warminster Athletic will be extremely happy with their exploits this Sunday as they ran out convincing 4-1 winners against Kingfisher of Division 2.

Gareth Bradshaw opened the scoring for Warminster and Dan Chesterton scored the second and they went in at the break with a bit of a cushion. Despite Matty Holdaway grabbing a goal back for Fisher, the points stayed in Warminster with further goals from Noah Millard and Harry Bodymore putting the icing on the cake.

Group B:

Calne United 1-8 Lavis FC

Lavis Bounce Back In Style

It looks like it was a case of being ‘the next opponent’ for Calne United as Lavis FC righted the wrongs from their defeat last week in some style.

Matt Purdy bagged a hattrick, Jack Booth scored twice and a goal apiece from Ryan Underwood and Jack Sterling with the other an unfortunate own goal made for 8 goals with United’s response coming from Adam Walsh.

Chippenham Icons FC 5-1 Sporting Box FC

Icons Back On Track In Comfortable Win

Chippenham Icons are proving somewhat of a team that lie in between the top echelon of the Premier Division but also too strong for Division 1 as this result against Sporting Box maybe goes to show.

Ryan Nicholls(2), Rich Hudson(2) and an own goal made the numbers for Icons.

Royal Oak FC 6-4 Fox & Hounds (Warminster) FC

Oak Win A Humdinger of 10 Goal Thriller

A thoroughly entertaining game took place at Northbrook and it was Royal Oak who prevailed against Fox & Hounds 6-4.

By halftime it was Oak who were the happiest of the two sides, leading 3-1 thanks to goals from Jed Kirkwood(2) and Brody Broom. Fox’s goal was an equaliser an audacious effort from Reece Collier inside his own half which beat Tom North in the Oak goal.

After the break, the Fox’s turned the game on it’s head to lead 3-4 with 2 goals from Jake Owen and Taylor Kitley.

But the pendulum then swung back in the other direction as a brace from Cam Wildman and a Sam Chapman goal ensure Oak took the win.
