Tough day for Hurst Farm United in quarter-finals of the Cavendish Cup

Matlock & District League

It was Cavendish Cup quarter-final weekend and the biggest winners were Boythorpe who romped to a 10-0 win at Hurst Farm United.

Elsewhere, Chesterfield Town are into the semi-finals after overcoming South Wingfield 3-0, whilst Shirland Miners Welfare beat Laburnum Saints 5-2 and Shirebrook Rangers’ 2-1 win over Black Hippo completed the line-up.

In the league, Division One action saw Ashover well beaten at home by Codnor Miners, 4-0.

Stu Ryan’s penalty, Russ Sharp’s brace and Loz Bond did the damage for Codnor.

In Division Two, Barley Mow enjoyed a 4-2 away success at AFC Lea Holloway.

The visitors led 3-0 at the break after a dominant first-half display, Ash Morton putting them in front after a poor back pass and then adding a second after more hesitant defending.

Jono Elliott then added a third before the break.

A scrambled goal pulled one back for Lea and Tony Rodgers added a second soon afterwards, but Morton completed his hat-trick from the penalty spot to seal Mow’s victory.

Also in Division Two, Wirksworth Albion overcame Tansley 3-1.
