RUBY Removals scored an extraordinary 21 goals without reply at home to The Regent to secure their passage through to the second round of the Advertiser Cup on Saturday.

Devon Brown’s side were seven goals up at half-time before scoring with machine-gun-like regularity after the whistle for the second 45 started.

The leaders of the Swindon and District Premier Division were strong favourites against the side that possesses the bottom spot in the same table, but Brown said his team took nothing for granted as they produced some of their best football to build an eyebrow-raising 21-0 lead.

Alex Hammond was the star of the show for Ruby, scoring a double hat-trick and laying on five assists for his teammates while Devon Bryan tried his best to steal the limelight with a quintuplet of goals himself.

Godfrey Chisanga netted four, Billy Sly and Tom Elliott got two, and Levi Cox and Andy Hayward rounded off the scoring.

Reflecting on an incredible scoreline, Brown said: “Fair play to The Regent because they battled all the way until the end.

We probably played to our maximum capability, which obviously helped.

“We passed, we moved, and we shot more. That’s one of the biggest gripes I have with the team, that we try and pass the ball into the net.

“If we shot more, we would get a lot more convincing scorelines. Maybe not to that level, but we would certainly score more goals than we usually do.

“We wanted to go unbeaten in the league, but that’s not happened, so all we can do is try and win every game from now until the end of the season.

“That means winning the Adver Cup, the other league cup, the Wiltshire Cup and the league.

“We have the team to do that, quality-wise, but it requires all of those players to stay committed.”
