Five-star Sam Jordan fires Bradford Renegades into Sunday cup final
Chippenham Sunday League side Bradford Renegades scored 11 without reply as they eased through to the final of the Westernsport Trophies-sponsored WG Parr Trophy at the expense of Division 3 basement side Cavalier.
The unstoppable Sam Jordan bagged five goals, one more than Mark Robinson, and Ashley Styles and Jordan Pinder were also on target to set up a showdown with Premier Division side FC Colerne.
They were in league action on Sunday and won by the odd goal in seven against Westbury Rangers, despite playing the whole game with just ten men.
Gavin Palmer put Rangers ahead but Chris Dixon (2), Chris Burling and Ashley Pechey turned things around for Colerne before two late Chris Storey goals made it closer than expected.
First Division Biddestone White Horse faced North Star A for the second time in seven days, with their previous meeting having been abandoned after 57 minutes when Tom Lye suffered a broken jaw.
An excellent sporting encounter showed that was an isolated incident but, despite twice being pegged back by a Dan King penalty and Leigh Rogers, North Star claimed their first win of the season thanks to Paul Green, Matt Law and Adam Walsh (2).
Corsham Park Rangers kept up their promotion challenge in Division 2 with a hard-fought 3-2 victory over North Star B.
Matt Spear, Kent Kauppinen and substitute Dave Smith won it for Rangers after Mickey Taraskevic’s double had threatened to cause an upset.
Biddestone Social’s Eric Hughes Memorial Cup quarter-final against White Horse finally went ahead at the third time of asking, with Tyler Sibbick’s hat-trick giving the Premier Division leaders a comfortable 4-1 success.
Danny Jones opened the scoring for Social, who will face local rivals Biddestone White Horse in the semis, and Pete Ayton replied from the penalty spot.
In the Subsidiary Cup, goals from Dan Gilbert (2) and Luke Denham could not save FC North Wiltshire from a 4-3 defeat to Old Road in Group A.
Andrew Rose opened the scoring and Adam O’Keeffe added a hat-trick, included a sublime 30-yard volley.
In Group B, Darrin Moss gave Corsham United a half-time lead against top-flight AFC Melksham but Jordan Kirk’s second-half double turned things around.
