Six of the best for Upton in super rout
10:30am Wednesday 24th October 2012 in Football
UPTON Town inflicted previously unbeaten local rivals Hanley Swan’s first defeat of the season in style.
The hosts triumphed 6-0 in the Cheltenham Association League’s Senior Charity Cup first round, despite missing a host of players through injury.
Matt Hindmarsh opened the scoring for Town, cutting in from the left and scoring at the second attempt.
Luke Kitchen made it 2-0 shortly after, running at the defence to unleash a 25-yard rocket into the top corner.
Kitchen and Hindmarsh both went close again, while captain Richard Foley volleyed over from a tight angle at the other end.
After weathering a short storm at the start of the second- half, Town created plenty of chances and Hindmarsh netted from a Matt Warne cross only to have it disallowed by a late flag.
Town grabbed a third when Adam Spencer volleyed home with his left foot following a corner. Tom Crump made it 4-0 with a dipping shot and then his free-kick was deflected in by Spencer before Luan Gashi rounded off the scoring with a header.
- Newtown Sports men’s team are looking for a new goalkeeper as their regular number one is moving to Norway.
