WILTSHIRE JUNIOR CUP: Eagles win leaves Swiss cheesed off
10:59am Monday 7th October 2013 in Latest News
CALNE Eagles got through to the second round of the Wiltshire Junior Cup with a much needed and impressive 4-2 win over Swindon & District Premier Division side Swiss Chalet Rangers.
Calne took the lead after 17 minutes when Rangers’ keeper Aaron Selby spilt the ball on the goal line after saving a Stu Windsor header, leaving midfielder Russell Driver with the easiest of tap-ins.
However, as the half progressed, the away side started to come much more into the game, and after a period of sustained pressure, they managed to equalise right on the stroke of half-time through top scorer Mark Hughes.
Stuart Windsor put Calne back in front when he latched onto Brett Cullen’s long pass before coolly finishing from 12 yards out.
Ten minutes later, 17-year-old Jordan Winter scored his first goal in men's football when he was quickest to react after Rangers failed to properly clear a corner kick.
Calne then seemingly made the game safe by scoring a fourth when Stu Windsor once again raced clean through on goal and lobbed onrushing keeper Aaron Selby.
In closing stages, Swiss Chalet forced a lot of pressure and got a goal back through midfielder Lewis Polden.
DJC Marlborough 0 White Horse 5
White Horse FC, who are tipped to be one of the main flag bearers for the Trowbridge League in this season’s competition, got their cup campaign up and running with a convincing 5-0 victory away at Swindon League side DJC Marlborough.
The Third Division newcomers led 2-0 at the interval courtesy of goals from Ross Parker and Kane Scott.
The second half was a stroll in the October sunshine for White Horse as Pete Ayton, Dave Appleyard and Marek Miszta shared the goals that earned the Westbury-based outfit their place in the second round.
