Uphill Castle hit Yatton & Cleeve United for eight in the Somerset League cup.

After scraping past the same opponents a few weeks back with a late penalty this turned out to be a much better Uphill performance.

A good run and cross from Sam Beresford set up Nathaniel Groom for the opener before Jack Askins beat his man and fired in from the edge of the box to put the Castle 2-0 up.

A fiery first-half led to a sin bin for each side and a Sam Beresford goal ruled out.

Will Sneddon-Coombs put the hosts 3-0 up from the spot after Beresford was brought down and with the defence looking solid Uphill pushed on for more with Toby Yeates put clean through to make it 4-0.

Beresford then got one himself, volleying in from a man of the match Dan Hartley set-piece to make it five, and Jack Askins made it 6-0 with a free-kick from just outside the box.

A corner routine saw Ben Harris play into Harry Askins who beat his man and fired across for Groom's second before a great finish from reserves forward Dan Thomas made it 8-0.
