AFC Casey’s scored an excellent 3-2 NFA Sunday Cup win over last season’s finalists Wellingborough Saxons.

The win sees Casey’s progress to the quarter-finals.

Casey’s defended against the wind and up the slope in the first-half, but still took the lead through Chris Trill.

Casey’s pushed for a second, but it was Saxons who levelled just before half-time.

Casey’s wasted early chances in the second half, and it looked ominous when Saxons took a 2-1 lead.

But Casey’s hit back strongly, equalised late in the game through Trill.

Extra-time was on the cards at this point, but Casey’s nicked it when Trill scored his third of the match.

This Sunday Casey’s are at home to Woodlands at Staverton Park (ko 11am).
