SWINDON Supermarine made it two knockout victories in four days with a 4-1 success at home to Larkhall Athletic in the Southern League Challenge Cup on Tuesday night.

Lee Spalding’s side had previously claimed a 3-0 success away at Wantage Town in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Southern League Premier Division side Supermarine were a cut above their Division One South opponents throughout the 90 minutes at the Webbswood Stadium.

After having the better of the early proceedings against Larkhall, Marine eventually got their noses in front after half-an-hour as Kane Simpson scored a superb 25-yard strike.

The cushion was 2-0 shortly afterwards as Bradley Gray hit the back of the net, and there was more good news for Marine before the break as Henry Spalding grabbed a third for the hosts.

Lewis Powell pulled a goal back for Larkhall on the hour but any nerves in the Marine camp were calmed 10 minutes from time when Conor McDonagh pushed the cushion back up to three goals.

Highworth Town will look to join Marine in making Challenge Cup progress this evening as they host Mangotsfield United.

There was also Tuesday night action in the Hellenic League as the Floodlit Cup began.

Shrivenham were made to work for their place in the next round as they battled to a 4-3 win at home to Wantage Town Development.

Antonio Gerrish struck twice for Shrivvy, Jack Allan got one and the hosts’ lot was completed by an own goal.

Fairford Town were unable to join them after they lost at home to Bourton Rovers in a penalty shoot-out.

The two sides could not be separated over the 90 minutes as the game finished 1-1 – with Nathan Hawkins’ scoring a 30-yard free-kick for Fairford – before Bourton won 4-3 on penalties.

Royal Wootton Bassett Town are out too following a 3-1 defeat at home to Malvern Town.

Andy Sandell got Bassett’s goal – making it 1-1 at the time.
