Northants Sunday Combination round-up: Fowkes fires Butcher Loco to a Sixfields final

Craig Fowkes claimed a brilliant brace to fire Butcher Loco into the final of the NTFA Plester Shield.

Fowkes’ doublem along with strikes from Chris Fury and Chris Culley, saw Butcher seal a 4-2 win at AFC Obelisk United Reserves and claim their final place at Sixfields.

In the premier division, Blakesley moved up to third with a 5-0 win over Royals.

George Bonifas scored twice in the win, with others coming from Jamie Cunningham, Rob Kirby and an own goal.

In division one, Wootton Fields Wanderers eased to a 6-2 triumph over bottom club MDS Rangers.

Sam Hicks (2), Ollie Judge, Danny Armsby and Alex Smith (2) were all on the mark for Wootton, who move up to fifth.

James Brown and Lloyd Hunter replied for Rangers.

The weather put paid to any other Combination games, but three games were played in the league’s veteran section.

Brixworth All Saints went out of the NFA Veterans Cup at the semi-final stage following a 3-1 defeat at Peterborough Itter Park Rangers.

Matt Stevenson, Lawrence Clarke and Ronald Fortune did the damage for Rangers.

James King Blisworth Vets are through though thanks to a thumping 5-0 home win over Corby Eagles Vets.

Lee Cowley led the scoring with a hat-trick, while there were singles from Simon Skipworth and Colin Cooper.

In Veterans League A, Weedon Vets came out on top of a seven-goal thriller at home to Moulton Vets.

Weedon won 4-3 courtesy of strikes from Tim Knowles, Michael Christie, John Turton and Jamie Clift.

Simon Buswell (2) and Jim Baker struck back in vain for Moulton.
