Northants FA Area Cup.

Eight sides faced external opposition with only two sides failing to progress.

Duston Garage Reserve Premier Division leaders Bugbrooke ‘A’ were by far and away the biggest winners.

The return trip along the A5 was miserable for visiting North Bucks outfit Yardley Gobion after the rampant Badgers ran in eleven goals.

Town League sides JLB and Upper Mounts both found Combination opposition too strong.

Spratton Reserves cruised to victory, scoring six against the Mounts, while JLB fell to Heyford Reserves. Harleigh East, Alex Marlow, and Paul McIntyre all found the target to bring some cheer to the club.

Dan Brown scored twice for West Haddon Reserves and an Edward Harman strike forced overtime in the clash with Wollaston Reserves.

Despite these goal-scoring exploits it was Wollaston who progressed with a penalty shoot-out victory.

Daventry Comms managed to hold on to top spot for a second successive week, possibly putting an end to the hot-potato that has characterised it thus far.

A 4-1 win over Spratton ensured that the Daventry side held onto pole position and increased the goal difference advantage over Wollaston.

The Vics were also winners, seeing off Strip Mills 3-1 and remain level on points with the leaders.
