HIGHWORTH Town Sunday were the weekend’s big winners as they put 17 past The Abbey Mead in the Swindon Sunday League Knockout Cup.

The Division Two side are yet to play a league game, but have booked their place in the next round following their resounding 17-0 win.

Manager Mitchell Brown was pleased with the performance, although he doesn’t think his side learnt much from their cup outing.

“We didn’t really know what to expect to be honest because they were a new team,” he said.

“All we had to do was make sure that we set up right to start with, then see how it panned out.

“Once we got settled it went one way, our players were walking around taking the mick really.

“You can only play what is infront of you, even though it probably wasn’t the best to watch.”

The second tier’s early leaders, Royal Wootton Bassett Town also had a huge margin of victory in their cup tie, picking up a 15-1 win at Northern Lights.

Croft Junior were able to translate their winning start in the league into the cup, as they hit Cricklade Park Rangers for six in a 6-1 home win.

It was a similar story for fellow Division Two outfit Stratton Saints, who proved too strong for the hosts Chiseldon Sunday, they were beaten 5-1.

Nationwide edged out their clash with Eldene at the weekend with the former doing just enough to record a 2-1 cup win.

Rudis put on an impressive performance against Division One’s Jovial Monk, claiming a surprise 5-0 triumph away from home Athletico Marlborough came close, but were unable to topple AFC Mannington at home, the hosts lost 3-2.

Unlike Swindon Athletic, who were unfazed by their journey to Openwork United as they pinched a 2-1 away win.

Willowgreen Hotspur endured a high scoring game with visiting Gorsehill as they were well beaten 6-2 by their counterparts.

For the first division teams, it was a relatively successful round in the cup competition.

Greyhound had the stand-out result, they were 10-1 winners at home to Swindon Rovers while Coleshill Youth booked their place in the next round after they sent Smart Movers packing following a 5-0 win.

PSV Swindon were unable to advance into the next stage of the competition as they were dumped out by Cleeve Tech, that game ended 4-1 to the visitors.

Penhill United’s tie with Rodbourne Real had a total of 11 goals, but it was the former who progressed following a 9-3 victory.

AFC Freshbrook will join Penhill in the next round as they too recorded a win on the road, theirs came against Wanborough and finished 8-0.

Lastly, Sevenfield United were left disappointed after slipping to defeat, losing 10-3 at home to Charles Geddes.
