TRAK FC boss Paul Newman admitted he and his players felt embarrassed after their 15-1 Chairman’s Trophy demolition of Save on Tyres Athletic.
Despite starting the game with only 10 men, Trak dominated the first half to lead 10-0 at the break before adding another five following the interval to complete a routine victory.
Oliver Sly led the way with six as Barry Cleminson grabbed a hat-trick, Richard Miles and Steven Que netted braces, while Sam Ockwell and Darren Coleman also found the net.
“For a quarter-final of the cup in was a bit embarrassing really and that is a strange feeling to have at the end of a game of football,” he said.
“We were 3-0 up after 20 minutes and then 10-0 at half-time so it was pretty much game over then because it felt like a kickabout in the park for us.
“We’re in the semi-finals now and we of course want to go on and win it.”
