IN the GFA Senor Amateur Cup Whaddon United travelled to Bibury, last season's Cheltenham League champions, and now a Northern Senior league side.

In a hard fought contest the teams were all level at 2-2 on full time.

Justin Powell and Michael Winter were on target for Whaddon. And it was Whaddon who emerged winners with a 5-4 penalty shoot-out success.

Another club playing against a Northern Senior side was Kings FC, away at Winchcombe. Unfortunately an early own goal by skipper Simon Dempster led to a 1-0 defeat. They worked hard but unfortunately the goals just would not come .

In the County Minor cup Cheltenham Civil Service III took on Old Richians Reserves. Goals from Barrie White and Kev Parton saw the score at full time at 2-2, and in the penalty shoot out Civil Service were winners 5-4.

Star III were too strong for Puma FC Reserves with a convincing 9-1 victory. Scorers were Tom Jacobson, James Evans, Drew Humphries (3), Jack Costerton (3) finishing off with a penalty taken by keeper Aaron Brown.

In the Primary cup all five Cheltenham League sides are through to the next round with big results from Northway (9-1) and Smiths (9-1).
