BANWELL Under-15s travelled to first division Burnham in the cup and came away 6-0 victors.
After initial home pressure, Banwell settled their game, the inspirational Harry Hornigold collected a first half hat-trick with great link up play with Dale Waite, Jordan Townsend and Joe Gomm.
The start of the second half saw Burnham trying trying to get back into the match, but the backline of Ben Ja-min, Andy Izzard, Connor Davidson and Dan Butler were outstanding as was keeper Jack Andrews, who made some fantastic saves to keep the home attackers at bay.
Mbali Hanyana, George Harris and Lewis Brake were winning the midfield battles along with Izzy Boulton and Jordan Graham. Hornigold grabbed his fourth and fifth sandwiched by a Butler penalty after Gomm was brought down.

With four key players missing from Crusaders Under-15s line-up, it was always going to be a difficult game against a well-organised Backwell side.
The game started brightly with Crusaders having two chances saved, but it was Backwell that broke the deadlock and never looked back.
Tom Light, Callum Wilson, Mike Hosey and Jack Bridgman had to contend with the long ball over the top and Luke Loveridge stood little chance. James Lawrence worked hard, but was thwarted when a fine strike hit the crossbar.
Mike Dancer, Ryan Elkins, Jordan Bolitho, Joe Godfrey and Kieren White were given no time on the ball as Backwell closed down fast.
Will Sneddon Coombes stepped up an age group to offer respite in the second half, but Backwell continued to put the goals away. Crusaders eventually scored when Bolithos’ corner kick resulted in Godfrey heading home and to add insult to injury, Backwell’s final chance of the game deflected in off one of the defenders to make it 6-1 to Backwell.
Formula 1st man of the match went to Mike Dancer.
