The game began fairly evenly with the Hutton defence called into action a number of times and keeper Luke Grindle was helped by Tom Smith and Kyle Jones to repel any Burnbridge attacks. Macauly Abram, Lewis Neal, Jay Murray and Harry Munden were industrious in midfield, passing the ball around despite the boggy conditions. Jake Flavell and Ty Jamieson were full of running up front, dragging the defenders out of position to provide space for the midfield.

Soon Hutton began to dominate and, despite a spirited display, Burnbridge could not cope with the quality of Hutton's forward play. Goals for Hutton came from Flavell, Abram (4), Jamieson (2), Munden (2) and Neal.

A good strike by a Burnbridge player made it 2-1, and Hutton appeared to wake up. Harry Harman, Jake Adams and James Brown were solid in defence which allowed Ciaran Murphy to run the midfield sending much of the play down the flanks to Tom White, George Darch and Sam Mannings-Hill.

Toby Butterfield was unstoppable up front and Liam Bailey, who played in almost every position during the game, was composed and full of running. The goal of the match was a real team effort with several Hutton players passing through the Burnbridge team to leave Mannings-Hill an easy tap in. Further goals came from Butterfield (4), Darch (3), Murphy (2), Brown (2) and White.

The Under-11s were lucky to have Gary Meakins from David Beckham Soccer Academy down to coach the boys for a few hours, and there could be a chance of the team going up to London for a training session at the London Academy.

Priory continued with their attacking passing game and almost equalised when Kai Hopkin came within a whisker of connecting with a Hassalls' cross. Jordan Hodgkinson showed stamina by getting up and down the right, Cam Frost, George Lewis and James Kerr came close.

The second half started with Priory knocking the ball about really well, Lewis and Hassalls had shots before the equaliser came in the 39th minute, when a corner was not dealt with and the ball dropped for Josh Skuse who made no mistake from close range for his second of the season. This was the spark Priory needed and in the 43rd minute Jordan Biss got them into the lead when he prodded home a Bradley Hassalls cross, for his fourth goal of the season.

PRIORY Rangers Under-15s from Division 3 faced a difficult second round cup tie against Divison 1 Berrow Boys.

Priory started the game the brighter and had Berrow on the back foot with an early Ashley Smith corner that was kept out by a post and a Berrow defender, but they took a well deserved lead when some good work from Ben Macaulay allowed MGM Recycling man of the match Joseph Reames to unleash a 25-yard drive which ripped into the back of the net.

Berrow started to settle and played some good football but could not break down Priory defence of Ross Wood, Sam Fernley, John Hunt and Ashley Smith. When they eventually did, keeper Lewis Hyatt was more than a match. Angelo Fagnani, Kyle Smith, Chris Bridges, Joe Reames and Callum Neate battled hard in midfield. Priory won a free kick some 35 yards from goal and Sam Fernley trie his luck with a shot which was straight at the Berrow keeper but the power was too much and Priory doubled their lead.

Neate was replaced by Kerry Morris who battled well in midfield. Berrow pressured and right on half time scored a goal from a corner with a well placed header.
