HAVING won the Division 4 Cup last season, Wrington began their campaign to win the Division 3 Cup with a quarter-final win away at Wedmore.

Both sides started slowly on a heavy, uneven surface, but Wrington took the lead when Mick Edmunds stepped up to score from a free kick.

The visitors could have extended their lead when Phil Hartnup, Moore and Neilsen linked up for Neilsen to strike the foot of the post. The same trio went even closer shortly afterwards as Moore flicked on Hartnup’s cross for Neilsen to finish, only for the goal to be ruled out for offside.

Most Read

Wrington were left rueing these missed opportunities as Wedmore levelled with virtually the last kick of the first period.

Wrington came closest to winning the game in normal time, hitting the crossbar twice, while Rouvrais went agonisingly wide.

With both sides tiring, Wrington stepped up a gear in the first period of extra time and extended their lead following another terrific free-kick from Edmunds in a similar position.

Wrington then appeared to have put the game safe when captain Nick Buck set up Rouvrais for the third, but Wedmore replied with a goal to set up a nervous finish.
