BAKERS Arms boss Pete Smith believes the Swindon Advertiser Cup probably represents his side’s best chance of silverware this season after they progressed into the last four of the competition with a 3-1 win over Swindon AFC on Saturday.

Second-half goals from Daniel Hiscocks, Ashton Glover and Levi Kuenen booked a semi-final tie against top-flight rivals Lower Stratton as Swindon replied with a disputed penalty awarded for handball.

Arms also currently top the Premier Division standings but are counting the cost of a 5-2 defeat to closest rivals Tawny Owl last month which handed their rivals, who have two games in hand, the initiative.

Owl are also in the last four of the cup, but Smith reckons that competition may be the one for his side to target as the push for honours gathers pace.

“The Premier Division is probably a bit of a long shot now,” said Smith.

“Tawny are a good team and it’s probably in their hands but the cup is definitely something we can go for.

“We got beaten by them (Tawny Owl) but we could have been a couple of goals up in that game before they won it.

“I wasn’t too happy with how that had gone so I changed things around a bit (for the cup tie).”

Redhouse booked a George Thomas/Don Rogers Cup semi final tie against North Swindon WMC as they edged past Supermarine DC 4-3 in their last-eight clash on Saturday.

Marine’s goals came from a Kyle Bowyer brace and Brendo Nkegbe.

There was no Premier Division action at the weekend, but two matches in Division One did take place.

Marlborough Reserves moved level on points with leaders Ruby Removals as they edged past Chiseldon 2-1, Chiseldon having taken the lead with a strike from James Lovell.

Mid-table Village Inn claimed their fifth win of the campaign as they inflicted another loss on bottom side Brockhill.

Kevin Murphy led the way in the 5-2 success for Inn, scoring four times, while Craig Kelly also netted.
