MOM: Nicky Barnes

Report: A valiant effort by Rovers though they were outshone by Braunston's strength in a game where the result did not reflect Duston's performance.

Referee: Richard Beasley


Beat Nene Rangers 2-0

Scorers: James Pearson, Jo Gray

Team: Reece Clarke 10, Stephen Roberts 10, David Maye 10, Anthony Baine 10, Eddie Kingston 10, Sam Freeland 10, James Pearson 10, Brett McCormick 10, Matthew Nicholls 10, Ross Malpas 10, Jo Gray 10, Steven James 10, Ed Robinson 10, Aran French 10

MOM: The whole team

Report: This was the hardest game so far for Park, both teams gave 100 per cent. Park were kicking into the wind in the first half, with Jo Gray outstanding up front, he set up James Pearson for a well-taken goal just before half-time. The second half was much the same, with Eddie Kingston and Steven Roberts playing solidly in defence, Rangers couldn't get past our defence. Park kept pushing forward with good efforts from Ross Malpas, Steven Jones and Matthew Nicholls going just wide, before Eddie Kingston's pass to Jo Gray saw him beat two players to score a great goal. All credit to both teams for their football and team spirit, they all deserved MOM.

Referee: Pete Ayling


Beat Towcester Juniors 7-1

Scorers: Danny Tero 3, Courtney Douglas 4

Team: Nana Duodu, Danny Campbell, Josh Tait, Aidan Leach, David Tero, Danny Cramphorn, Mark Russell, Danny Tero, Courtney Douglas, Jean-Pierre Francis, Dean Hall, Elton Myftari

MOM: Danny Tero, Courtney Douglas

Report: Towcester had the early pressure but were unable to score. Celtic then pushed forward and were rewarded with a 4-0 led at half-time. All credit to Towcester who battled hard in the second half and kept Celtic at bay until the last 10 minutes of the game when Celtic finally broke through again and put another three goals in. Towcester got a consolation with the last kick of the game.

Referee: Russell


Beat Parklands B 9-3

Scorers: Conor Stanford 4, Jon Simmarco 2, Simon Fairbanks 2, Rob Brookes

Team: Karsten Webb, Andy Routledge, Aiden King, Conor Husbands, Rob Brookes, Simon Fairbanks, Calum Wickens, Daniel Harvey, Adam Smith, Jon Simmarco, Conor Stanford, Gregg Westley, Jack Parker

MOM: Conor Stanford

Report: After an even start, Blisworth took control with some sweetly-taken goals scoring five before 10-man Parklands pulled one back before the interval. Two quick goals in the second half sealed the game. Parklands' heads never dipped and they battled well throughout, scoring a couple of goals themselves in the second half.



Drew 1-1 with Parklands

Scorer: Luke Bartley

Team: Tom Woodward, Sam Wright, Luke Bartley, Jo e Carr, Joe Pragnell, Ryan Andrew, Matthaus Marriott, Daniel Essom, Joe Baker, Sean Steel, Harry Williams, Ben Avery, Aaron Pearso, Daniel Komianos, Joshua Clark


Beat Moulton Magpies 2-1

Scorers: Jack Edser, Anthony Smith

Team: Aiden Wilsin, Andy Parr, Ashley Dogget, Edward Hyde, Chris De Luca, Dan Quy, David Horner, Jack Edser, John Walters, Ollie Baxter, Steve Ryan, Matthew Gundel, Joe Callaghan, Anthony Smith, Jack Whiting

MOM: Anthony Smith

Report: A lack-lustre start to the match didn't bode well, especially with Moulton getting the best of what few chances there were in the first half. This is not to underestimate Andy Parr's achievement at keeping a clean slate for Cogenhoe. A half-time change around brought Anthony Smith and Matthew Gundel into play, which totally changed the team dynamics. Cogenhoe began to play as a team. This resulted in a goal by Jack Edser almost from the off. A second followed 15 minutes later by Anthony Smith, returning from injury. Soon after Moulton seized a goal back and continued to threaten, stretching Cogenhoe's defence. A last minute corner from Moulton kept the Cogenhoe supporters' nerves on edge right up to the final whistle.

Referee: Antonio De Luca


Beat Duston Knights 6-0

Scorers: Chris Brand 3, Paul Lucas 2, Mikey Hewitt

Team: Andrew Greasley, Barnaby Anderson, Chris Brand, Sean McKenna, Danny Mitchell, Paul Lucas, Mikey Hewitt, Kerryn Smyth, Michael Stanton, Austen Greaterox, Shane Boucherm Adam Bazeley, Luke Norrey, Ciaren Burnell, Jack Curtis

MOM: Chris Brand

Report: Brixworth again struggled to get going against Knights in the first half and were 1-0 at the break following some scrappy Brixworth play, which kept our keeper on his toes making several good clearances into the wind. The second half started better with Brixworth eventually starting to dominate a spirited Knights team and scoring regularly in the last 20 minutes with a Chris Brand hat-trick and an excellent headed goal by Paul Lucas. Well played Knights for keeping going to the final whistle.

Referee: Paul Curtis


Beat Kingsthorpe Jets 3-0

Scorers: Danny Mortimer, Damon Herbert, Alex Quatrine

Team: John Barrett, Daniel Barnard, Andrew Rose, Jake Nagy, Franco Reina, Tom Horsley, Matt James, Max Collins, Danny Mortimer, Damon Herbert, Alex Quatrine

MOM: Matt James

Report: An entertaining game with both sides battling well. Jets performed well above their league form enjoying plenty of possession. Whitefield played well and created many chances. The main difference between the sides was in front of goal with Whitefield putting away their chances. Alex Quatrine and Danny Mortimer put the game safe and Damon Herbert completed the scoring against his old club.

Referee: Chris Sheppard


Lost 3-0 to Eye Focus

Team: Daniel Rainbow 9.5, Theo Stanley 9.5, Jamie Holdon-Hales 9.5, Steven Burns 10, Mtthew Clues-Hills 9.5, Nickolas Herridge 9.5, Sam Pete 9.5, John Scott 9.5, Tom Watkins 9.5, Daniel Callaway 9.5, Charlie Wright 9.5, Simon Wright 9.5, James Leslie 9.5, James Critchell 9.5

MOM: Steven Burns

Report: On a windy Kingsthorpe Rec Eye Focus started with eight players due to a breakdown. Sunnyside kicked off playing with the wind and went close on numerous occasions with their keeper pulling off magnificent saves from Callaway, Scott and Wright. They then hit Sunnyside on the break and went in 1-0 up at half-time. Playing with a full side and with the wind to their advantage Eye Focus scored a second. Sunnyside played, good football against the wind and went close on numerous occasions but for excellent goalkeeping. Eye Focus then scored a third, well played both teams.

Referee: David Martin


Beat Cottingham 5-2

Scorers: Stephen Kelsey, Jordan Winter, Ryan Gleeson, Ryan MacHardie 2

Team: Jordan Allen, Alex Nembhard, Anthony Reynolds, Adam Collier, Jonathon Hazell, Stephen Kelsey, Jordan Winter, Ryan Gleeson, Ben Richardson, Ryan MacHardie, Franklin Mwanza, James Chapman, Tim Melvin

MOM: Adam Collier

Report: A very windy Wilbarton made it very difficult for both teams to play some decent passing, although it was always Wootton who managed to do so in patches. Two scrappy goals by the home side put them two up. Late in the first half Steve Kelsey pulled one back for Wootton. The second half Wootton with the wind behind more or less controlled the game and added four goals by Ryan MacHardie (2), Jordan Winter and a thunderbolt from Ryan Gleeson to secure the match and progress into the second round. Well done to Cottingham who never gave up.

Referee: Daniel Glaswenski


Lost 1-0 to Brackley Athletic

Team: Tommy Law, Peter Stiles, Matt Duguid, Chris Tyrell, Jake Osborne, Jake Stone, Mark Cadman, Dominic McDowell, Colm Pacey, Luke Archer, Nick Pawley, Steffan Cook, Callum Gray, Jason Locke

Report: Two cleared off the line, the woodwork hit four times and a penalty were just some of the better opportunities for Moulton. McDowell, Stone and Cadman were superb in midfield passing their way through a physical Brackley team. 12 minutes remained when Magpies fell to a sucker punch by conceding a goal from a corner. Moulton's best performance of the season was not matched by the result.

Referee: Kevin Worrall


Lost 4-3 to Towcester Juniors

Scorers: Tom Moriarty, Ashley Bryan, Jack Diamond

Team: Scott Burton, Jon Lee, Stuart Poole, Aaron Goodman, ross Marriott, Aaron Mitchell, Jack Diamond, Ben Burbidge, Tom Moriarty, Dale Spick, Stuart Wicks, George Briar, Bill Jones, Ashley Bryan, Manveer Mahill, Dan Hawkins

Report: A close encounter played in a true cup spirit. Towcester took a 2-0 lead inside the first 10 minutes but Harpole kept fighting and goals from Tom Moriarty and a cracking shot from Ashley Bryan pegged it back to 2-2 at half-time. Towcester came out determined from the kick-off and took the lead again. With lots of chances missed by both teams Harpole then scored another scorcher by Jack Diamond. The decisive goal went to Towcester from a free-kick, which the Harpole keeper Scott Burton made a good save but Towcester followed up to score. Harpole still kept the pressure on until the final whistle but couldn't make it pay.

Referee: Stephen Edwards


Beat Booth Rushden Youth 4-0

Scorers: Stuart Dilley 3, Matt Sillecchia

Team: Gavin Harding 9, Jake Hogben 9, Kierran Butcher 9, Josh Melling 9, Gez McGowan 9, Sean McBride 10, Matt Sillecchia 9, Beau Bennett 9, Ashley Rollinson 9, Stuart Dilley 9, Joe Morris 9, Jerome McFarlane, Ahmed Shahabi, Chris Gilligan 9, Jamie Smeathers 9

Report: Celtic never looked in danger of being first round victims. With a goal in the first two minutes by Dilley, the Celtic midfield controlled the game and gave Rushden nothing. Dilley got his second following a patient build-up. He then completed his hat-trick early in the second half with a fierce drive low into the bottom corner. Sillecchia made it 4-0 late into the game with a long shot outside the box, where the keeper let it slip through his fingers.

Referee: Craig Druce


Lost 3-0 to Whitefield

Team: Ryan Emery, Kyle Humphries, Ryan Mannion, Alex Codner, James Grant, James Cox, Jamie Webb, Stephen Healey, Peter Stewart, James McClary, Scott Hill, Ryan Maloney

MOM: The whole team

Report: A good performance from Jets, but Whitefield's defence had a good day and stopped everything coming through. A good performance. Well done to the whole team.


Beat Drayton Grange 4-0

Scorers: Beau Bennett 2, Matt Sellechia, Jamie Smeathers

Team: Gavin Harding 8, Jake Hogben 7, Kierran Butcher 8, Josh Melling 8, Gez McGowan 8, Sean McBride 9, Matt Sellechia 8, Beau Benntt 9, Ashley Rollinson 8, Stuart Dilly 8, Jamie Smeathers 8, Ahmed Shahabi 8, Chris Gilligan 8, Jerome McFarlane 8, Joe Morris 8

Report: Celtic took the game by the scruff of the neck from the first whistle. Celtic confined the game in Grange's half, rarely letting them out. With all the possession, Celtic had little to show for it. Finally they got their first goal and they never looked back. Matt Sellechia netted once, with other strikes from Beau Bennett (2) and Jamie Smeathers.

Referee: Neil Melling



Beat Drayton Grange 5-0

Scorers: Ali Smith, James Russell 2, Junior Anderson, Jordan Campbell

Team: Dean Love, Alan Li, Ali Smith, Aaron Wright, James Russell, Albi Cosgrove, Tom Whelan, Liam Harris, Junior Anderson, Reece Morgan, Jordan Campbell, Ryan Brown, Micah Pink, Sam Johnson

MOM: Liam Harris

Report: An explosive start to the game with Russell blasting the ball into the net after defensive errors in the first five minutes of the match. A throw in contacted with Russell allowing him another goal just four minutes into the game. Grange settled down and despite good football, Buckby's Campbell and Anderson scored two more goals. A great cross from Morgan allowed defender Smith to score another. Grange had their moments and certainly played better football in the second half. Li defended brilliantly kicking clear two certain goals from the goal line. Well done boys.

Referee: S Littlemore


Beat Towcester 4-3

Scorer: Tom French 4

Team: Daniel Kilsby, Ryan Knight, William Mann, Richard Gill, Jack Jones, Ricky Humphries, Edward Jones, Alex Williams, Tom French, Daniel Porter, Daniel Mould, James Newton, Darren Smith

MOM: Ricky Humphries

Report: The Flames took a 2-0 lead before Towcester pulled one back just before half-time. The second half was just as exciting with Towcester equalising twice before Brixworth scored the winner with five minutes to go. Exciting football with Tom French scoring four excellent goals for the Flames.

Referee: G Newton


Beat Kingsthorpe 2000 4-3

Scorers: Jamie Lyons 3, Danny Molyneaux

Team: Joe Collier, Danny Adams, Nathanm Austin, Kieran Condon, Richard Marocco, Micky McMahon, David Willey, Matthew Bull, Jamie Lyons, Lewis Trasler, Tony Burton, Nick Herbert, Danny Molyneaux, Matt Hardy, Ryan Smith

MOM: The whole team

Report: Hart returned to winning ways with a far more spirited performance over a very dogged competitive Jets team. Jamie Lyons opened the scoring with a well-taken goal from Jamie Lyons, which saw Hart lead 2-1 at half-time. Jets came out strongly in the second half and went 3-2 up. Harts 'never say die' attitude saw Jamie Lyons completed his hat-tricking goalmouth scramble from a corner. Danny Molyneaux added the winning goal after leading like a salmon to head in from another corner kick. Very well played both teams in a league, which is proving to be very tough indeed.

Referee: M Cupoli


Beat Moulton Magpies 9-1

Scorers: Ali Smith, James Russell 3, Tom Whelan, Liam Harris, Junior Anderson, Raph Brown, Jordan Campbell

Team: Dean Love, Alan Li, Ali Smith, Aaron Wright, James Russell, Albi Cosgrove, Tom Whelan, Liam Harris, Junior Anderson, Raph Brown, Jordan Campbell, Ryan Brown, Micah Pink, Sam Johnson, Reece Morgan

Report: Buckby faultered at the start of the match allowing Holman to score a great goal against his old team. Shocked Buckby had to fight hard for their first goal from Russell. This was followed by three more goals from Campbell, Anderson and Raph Brown, Russell managed a hat-trick. Buckby rose in strength and despite a valiant effort from Magpies managed to score another five goals in the second half.

Referee: G Wales


Beat Parklands Tigers 7-1

Scorers: Conor O'Mahony, Ryan Clayson, Grant Murphy, Kurt Baker, Ashley Moreton 3

MOM: Conor O'Mahony

Report: Warriors got off to a flyer through Baker but Parklands hit back well. Warriors took control with Clayson, Murphy and O'Mahony each scoring and Morten scoring three giving us a 7-1 lead. Parklands showed great spirit and persistence throughout. Both goalkeepers Walden and Davies made great saves. Well done both teams.

Referee: Gary Newton


Lost 4-0 to Cogenhoe

Team: Sam Kelly, Jamie Wright, Jack James, Tim Spencer, Ronan Hammond-Furniss, Dan Spencer, Andrew Taylor, Sam Buss, Ali Courtney, Jamie Berry, Joe Robertson, Daniel Evans, Greg Courtney, Zac Roke, Ben Whiting, Tristan Simpson

Report: Cogenhoe took advantage of the wind in the first half and scored three goals with having two attempts on target but it was easily saved. In the second half Cogenhoe added to their tally with one more goal making it 4-0 to Cogenhoe. Shortly before the end the Towcester keeper Sam Kelly made a good save to deny Cogenhoe their fifth goal. Towcester never really tested the Cogenhoe keeper throughout the game.

Referee: D Hemmings


Lost 1-0 to Brixworth

Team: chris Dickenson 8, Steve Molyneaux 8, Mark Hughes 8, Kieran Wickens 8, Sam Regan 8, Brad Jones 8, Dave Griffin 8, Oliver Clarke 8, Tom Hillyer 8, Nathan Webster 8, Henry Blencowe 8, Jonathan Jay 8

MOM: Sam Regan, Brad Jones

Report: Again a frustrating day for Cogenhoe, they had most of the possession in the first half and hit the post twice with shots from Sam Regan and Brad Jones. The second half was more equal with Brixworth scoring the winner.

Referee: Steve Griffin


Drew 3-3 with Harpole

Scorers: Dan Quigley, Alan Holland 2

Team: Steve Maryon 9, James May 9, Sam Lavelle 10, Ryan Bunce 10, Dan Healey 9, Dan Quigley 9, Chris Bayliss 9, Saul Russo 9, Josh Barnett-Burns 9, Alan Holland 9, Tom Manning 9, Ryan West 9, Alex Godbolt 9, Dan Faulkner 9

MOM: Sam Lavelle, Ryan Bunce

Report: A fast and furious game where Jets opened the scoring with Harpole firing in the next three goals. Quigley executed a fine penalty and Holland levelled the score line following his opening goal. An excellent team performance with great defending from Sam Lavelle and Ryan Bunce. Well done both teams.

Referee: Mark West


Lost 7-1 to Sunnyside Warriors

Scorer: Daniel England

Team: Darren Walden, Iain Simmonds, Philip Anderson, Russell Palmer, Matthew Whitebread, Lewis Holmes, Jonathan Freund, Daniel England, Benjamin Billingsley, James Davies, Ryan Sparrow, Bradley York, Todd Campbell

Report: Parklands Tigers found it a difficult game to get a foothold in. Although there were some excellent individual performances and an odd glimpse of what Parklands Tigers are capable of. It was a good spirited game thanks to the good performance of the referee and excellent sportsmanship from both teams.

Referee: Gary Newton


Lost 4-3 to White Hart Youth B

Scorers: Ben Hue, Rishi Patel, Daniel Harding

Team: David Brown 9, Lewis Cupoli 8, Robert Hollis 8, James Cheer 8, Damien Battison 8, Ben Hue 8, Nile Holowell 8, Rishi Patel 8, Steve Mullins 9, Fabien Brown 8, Thulane Laukaitis 8, Luke Wilkins 8, Daniel Harding 8

MOM: Steve Mullins

Report: With both sides giving 100 per cent and with the lead changing from team to team, it was difficult to predict a winner. But with two goals within a five minute spell saw White Hart come away 4-3 winners.

Referee: Mick Cupoli


Lost 9-1 to Long Buckby

Scorer: Chris Finch

Team: Dan Lynch, Tom Liversedge, Ross Skidmore, Tom Brennan, David Cave, Sam Dengel, Stuart Finch, Chris Finch, Dan Holman, Stuart Parry, Josh Roberts, Andy Garrett, Matt Schofield, James Benton-Diggins, Ralph Foreman

MOM: Tom Brennan

Report: Magpies started brightly, putting Buckby on the back foot for the first 20 minutes and it was only a matter of time before they took the lead. The passing was crisp, they didn't allow Buckby time on the ball and they held their shape. The rest of the game was all Buckby and with some quality strikes they deserved their conclusive win. Magpies are capable of competing but they have to realise they have to do it for 80 minutes. Tom Brennan took MOM for Moulton for an excellent performance in defence. Credit to the referee for an excellent game.

Referee: Wale


Lost 4-1 to Bugbrooke St Michaels

Scorer: James Newton

Team: Daniel Kilsby, Ryan Knight, Richard Gill, Edward Jones, Jack Jones, James Newton, Ricky Humphries, Alex Williams, Tom French, Gavin Mobley, Daniel Mould, Daniel Porter, Darren Smith, William Mann

MOM: Daniel Kilsby

Report: Brixworth Flames took too long to get into the match and were 3-0 down before they started to play football, pulling a goal back courtesy of James Newton before half-time. The second half saw the Flames perform much better but despite several good chances they were unable to score. Well done to both teams.

Referee: D Sharp


Beat Brixworth Flames 4-1

Scorers: Steffan Cooksammy 3, Nathan Wood

Team: Ross Galyer 9, Tom Stephenson 9, Simon Wheeler 9, Tom Davies 9, Sam Harrison 9, Zac Miller 9, Nathan Wood 9, Pearse Flanagan 10, Callum Boardman 9, Steffan Cooksammy 9, Wesley Prickett 9, Alex Maull 9, Matt Jones 9, Sam Bird 9, Keith Huckle 9, Chris Bethall 9

MOM: Pearse Flanagan

Report: Bugbrooke started strongly and were soon two up through the hard-working Cooksammy. Nathan Wood got another fine goal after a run from half-way and a cool finish. Flames pulled one back with the last kick of the half. The second half was fairly even with chances at both ends. Steffan Cooksammy got his third and his second hat-trick of the season to seal the win. Pearse Flanagan got man-of-the-match for his tireless running and superb tackling. A good team performance from Bugbrooke.


Beat Kingsthorpe Knights 7-0

Scorers: Matthew Thacker 5, Lee Kew, Dave White

Team: Dean White 8, Chris Gilbert 8, Ben Rhodes 8, Joe Lucy 9, Dave White 8, Aaron Read 7, Mikey Gibbs-Pegg 8, Rory Callan 8, Jake Toppin 7, Matthew Thacker 9, Lee Kew 8, Ben McFarlane 8, Tom Ruddy 8, Nathan Payne 8

MOM: Joe Lucy

Report: Vampires took control of the game from the start. Kew and Thacker put them two up inside 15 minutes. Thacker then scored the goal of the game, breaking from halfway and chipping the keeper from 30 yards. In the second half, Vampires should have scored a hatful, but had to settle for four. Thacker added three more before setting up Dave White, who burst through from midfield for the seventh. An excellent performance at the back by man-of-the-match Joe Lucy.

Referee: Mark Richards



Beat Roade Rangers 2-0

Report: In another top of the table clash, Grange proved their recent form is not a fluke. They started superbly, going 2-0 up early on. The first was from David Poolton, when he turned magnificently in the box and smashed the ball into the bottom corner. Sean Smith continued his impressive goal-scoring form when he latched on to a ball from Poolton to chip the goalkeeper. Roade were then awarded a penalty, but Ashley Boyce saved it. Sean Smith then received his marching orders, but Grange still limited Roade to few opportunities.

Referee: N Platt

Team: Richard Faulkner, Daniel Wade, James Hills, Kyle Grant, Tom Brown, Tom Retief, Tom Murfitt, Jordan Casey, Josh Winters, Nick Webb, Matthew Yuill, Lawrence Bulliman

Report: Harpole started the game with determination and were 1-0 up after 10 minutes through Matt Yuill. Harpole sat back and allowed Jets back in the game and they equalised through a penalty just before the break. The second half saw another goal for Yuill, before Tom Murfitt made it three. Jets came back well and two late goals gave them a share of the spoils.

Referee: Mark West

MOM: Shane Ranft 9

Report: Cogenhoe came together as a team from the off with an all round display of football, every player gave everything. Cogenhoe passed the ball around lovely to create three great goals from open play, with Karl converting a corner straight from the flag. Great team football lads, well done everyone.

Referee: D Hemmings


Lost 7-0 to Vampires

MOM: Andrew Curren, Steven Toomey

Report: Knights started the game very well. Good passion, positioning and work-rate kept Vampires on their toes for part of the first half. Steve Toomey's determination won him the ball a number of times and made good use of it. But no luck for the team again, Andrew Curren made some very good saves and if it wasn't for good goalkeeping Vampires would have had a lot more. Keep going lads, it will come.

Referee: Mark Richards


Beat Drayton Grange 6-0

Scorers: Lewis Humphrey, Lee McConnell, Kane Rednall 2, Lee Hitchcock, Conner Botterill

Team: Darren Smith, James Reece, Lewis Humphrey, Lewis Williams, Lee McConnell, Lee Watson, Jack Ashton, Kane Rednall, Lee Hitchcock, Scott Tomkins, Conner Botterill

MOM: Kane Rednall

Report: A good performance by Chenecks on a bumpy pitch. Good football was played throughout the game and some fantastic finishes by McConnell, Botterill and Rednall ending good moves. Humphrey netted from the spot, Hitchcock followed up for a tap in. Good victory lads, keep it up.


Drew 5-5 with United Youth

Scorers: Ricky Knight 2, Ross Arundell 2, George Hunt

Team: Martin Feasey 6, Bradley Davies 7, Daniel Higley 7, Ryan Moule 7, Michael Murby 8, Wayne Spicer 7, Chris Carroll 9, Chris Griffin 7, Ricky Knight 7, Ross Arundell 8, Stuart Leahy 7, George Hunt 8, Adam George 7, Cory Bailey 7

Report: A great game! Awful defending, superb passing, brilliant finishing and a great advert for youth football. At the end even the spectators were left out of breath as the play swung from end to end with goals flying in left, right and centre. Both managers will be tearing their hair out as the poor defending arguably cost both sides three points. If we can cut out the mistakes we can match anyone in this league.

Referee: Ian Rathbone


Beat Brixworth Juniors 3-1

Scorer: Ricky Wright 3

Team: Joel Smith, James Pope, John Creichiou, Harley Richards, Chris Roberts, Rickey Langley, Tom Drage, Jack Spencer, Ricky Wright, Matthew Richardson, Lee Rowbotham

MOM: Steven Mitchell

Report: A goal down in less than 60 seconds, it took Oakley 15 minutes to get a goal through Bradley Bowman's cracker. After that Oakley scored two more before half-time through Paddy Leese and Liam McInally. In the second half goals by MOM Steven Mitchell (3), Robert Ritchie-Smith and Bowman saw Oakley collect the three points.

Referee: Matt York


Lost 3-0 to Irchester Romans

Team: William Reid 9, John Tiernan 8, Sam Jeffs 8, Richard Hand 8, Christopher Adams 9, Oliver O'Dell 7, Ben Bohan Jones 8, Tom Foster 7, Bob Whaley 7, Toms Nixon 7, Darren Fraser 7, Robert Hill 7

MOM: Christopher Adams

Report: On paper this looked a close game and for most of it it was. It seemed it was going to end 0-0 as both defences looked strong with Sunnyside's three man defence playing a good offside game. Sunnyside took their foot off the pedal for 10 minutes into the second half and Romans hit three good goals. Sunnyside came back and hit the bar and saw two more go just wide. A good game all round and a good game from the ref. Only a matter of time before Sunnyside get the win their effort deserves.

Referee: Peter Thompson

MOM: Paddy Leese

Report: The passing game by Oakley was a joy to watch and the scoreline could easily have been doubled, but six goals gave Oakley an easy passage into round two of the NFA Invitation Cup.


Lost 5-1 to Wootton St George


Team: Michael Wykes, Ryan Pallett, Jake Rodwell, Harry Winters, Nick Wilkins, Ryan Chown, Robbie Wheeler, Ben Burbridge, George Marsh, Kenny Englefield, Dominic Hodges, Laurence Denny, Michael Woodcock

MOM: Ryan Chown

Report: Bugbrooke got off to a poor start conceding an early goal from a freekick on the edge of the box, they then scored an own goal to make it 2-0. Then poor marking let Wootton in for their third goal within the first 15 minutes. Bugbrooke tried to heave themselves back into the game with a number of half chances before winning a penalty when Ryan Chown's footwork got the better of the defender in the box and he was brought down, but Bugbrooke missed the resulting spot kick – it just wasn't going Bugbrooke's way. In the second half they pushed to get themselves back in the game then midway through the half conceded two more goals. A small rally in the last five minutes produced an own goal from defender when he was put under pressure from George Marsh. Well done Wootton St George, a deserved win.

Referee: Peter Francis


Lost 3-0 to PSV

Team: Matthieu Obee, Sam Hawes, Gareth Parry, James Greenwood, Mark Louden, Adam Davis, Harry Metcalf, Matthew Glenn, Greg Sawyer, Luke Essex, Richard O'Dell, Lewis Hopper, Dean McAlindon, Nathan Cockerton

MOM: Harry Metcalf

Report: This was a typical cup tie with Drayton proving themselves against a very good PSV. A disallowed O'Dell goal and fine saves from Obee saw 0-0 at the break, but PSV scored within two minutes of the second half. Drayton produced a first class performance but the skilful PSV went on to score two more goals.

Report: Rangers started strongly and should have had three early goals but Brackley's keeper kept the home side in the game. Rangers then went 1-0 down in first half stoppage time. Shaun Spencer made his second penalty save of the season on 36 minutes after a Rangers player was tripped and fell against an opponent resulting in a penalty. Rangers chased the game, which allowed the home team to score in the second half injury time against the run of play.

Report: Lionverge finally got their first win of the season as they scrapped through in a dour battle. Lionverge had the better of the early play, but it was Roade who took the lead after sloppy defending by Verge. Lionverge equalised through a wonder goal from Lewis White who rifled a 25-yard shot into the top corner of the goal. Verge laid siege to the Roade goal and got a deserved equaliser when Luke Rideout hammered a close range shot in. Extra time saw no additional goals and it was left to Tom Hue to seal victory for Lionverge with a sudden death penalty. Lionverge will need to play better to progress further in this competition.

Report: The team demonstrated some excellent football in the first half and as a result were 6-0 up at half-time. After the interval the play wasn't as fluent as in the first half. However, Sywell continued to show signs of their best form and scored three more goals to end the game 9-0. Bella and Ianuzzi are now battling to be top goalscorers.
