Sorry it’s a bit late but here goes….
We start in the Plumstead Challenge Cup and Welling Town A travelled to Addington to face Sanderstead from the Croydon Municipal Sunday League, and it was the end of the line for the Croydon team after goals from Sam Bailey (2), Jordan McTigue, Taylor Robinson and Keegan Robinson gave Welling Town A a 5-1 win. Thank you to Sanderstead for entering and best wishes for the rest of the season. Next year maybe? Meanwhile Welling’s reward is a Quarter Final tie against Barnehurst.
Also in the PCC, Russellers nudged Greenwich Park Rangers out in a close 3-2 win. Rhys Edwards, Luke Mercer and Conor Edwards on target for Russellers while goals from James Simmons and Lee Knight weren’t enough as Russellers progress to a Quarter Final tie against Baldon Sports LKSL or Turk Ocagi Limassol Russellers. In the remaining PCC tie of the day, Woolwich Royals bowed out to Senior Division opponents with a hat-trick from Femi Orenuga, along with a brace a piece from Daniel McCarthy and Ryan Brown gave Long Lane a 7-1 win.

In the Dewar Shield, a twelve goal thriller between Barnehurst and Woolwich 90. Goals from Luke Coleman (3), Chris Johnson (2), Andrew Browne and Tom Morgan for Barnehurst saw them through 7-5, despite Tremain Brown and Danny Edwards both scoring twice for Woolwich and Mustapha Gray also getting on the scoresheet. Bayswater in the Quarter Final is the reward. Already in the Quarter Finals were The Oddfellows Arms, Sabanoh 97, Turk Ocagi Limasol Russellers and Eltham Lions. It’s The Oddfellows and Turk Ocagi who progress to the Semis after the former hit Sabanoh for five thanks to two goals a piece from Richie Hamill and James Sutherland along with Coy Hardy’s strike.
