Top-of-the-table Olney proved too strong for Padbury as they recorded a fine 7-2 victory thanks to four superbly taken goals from Marlon Waites, a double from Ben Ramsden and substitute Matt Viney scoring the goal of the game with a fine long range effort which flew into the top corner.

Padbury player-manager Craig Rumble had concerns before the game as he has been unable to field a regular squad in recent matches. New signing Ellis Jones was a named substitute for Padbury.

Olney dominated the game from the kick off with Marlon Waites and Charlie Malcolm working well together and Olney looking dangerous coming forward. Waites had a couple of opportunities to break the deadlock with a couple of headers that went wide of the post before finally scoring in the 16th minute when appeals for offside were turned down; Waites was able to capitalise and slotted the ball neatly past Sam Walker.

Waites scored again three minutes later when he was able to meet a superbly taken floating cross from the right and beat keeper Walker to the ball to head into the net.

Olney were well organised playing neat passing football. Ben Ramsden hit the crossbar and Alex Smail went narrowly wide with a superb diving header as Olney pressed hard to increase the lead.

Walker denied Waites a hat-trick in the 38th minute by pulling off a good diving save, however Waites sealed his hat trick just before half time when following a great through ball. He was able to outpace the Padbury defence and was able to fire the ball past Walker with a neat low finish to put Olney 3-0 up at half time.

Olney increased the lead to 4-0 in the 59th minute when Charlie Malcolm pin-point pass found Ben Ramsden who slotted the ball home.

Charlie Malcolm was denied a goal himself shortly afterwards when Walker pulled off a fine save as Olney continued to pile on the pressure.

Padbury’s Tom Marshall had an opportunity to pull a goal back following a great run from Luke Davies his cross found Marshall who shot narrowly wide.

Olney increased the lead in the 71st minute when Walker pulled off a fine point-black save from Marlon Watkins’ shot, however the loose ball found Ramsden who slotted in from close range.

Matt Viney made it 6-0 to Olney with a fine long range effort which sailed into the top corner.

With ten minutes left Padbury did create a few opportunities. Tom Marshall powerful effort forced a good save from Olney goalkeeper Robert Mungham.

Luke Davies pulled a goal back for Padbury scoring from close range before.

Olney’s Watkins scored his fourth with a fine individual solo effort to make it 7-1 to Olney.

Davies scored another consultation goal for Padbury hitting a superb volley from Liam Moran’s corner to make the final scoreline 7-2.

Padbury Village suffered a 1-0 home defeat against Stewkley Reserves in an evenly balanced game which saw few goal scoring opportunities for either side. It was not until the fifteenth minute when Padbury’s Phil Averill had the first shot on goal in the game. After a good run which finally broke down the tight and well organised Stewkley defence Averill’s effort was hit straight at the Stewkley keeper Jamie Graham who punched the ball away to safety.

Stewkley’s only goal scoring opportunity of the first half occurred when Brad Finch chested the ball down neatly after a superb cross from Rob Taylor but his shot went over the bar.
Phil Averill forced a superb save from Stewkleys Jamie Graham. Liam Moran displayed some quick pace to catch Stewkley on the break. Moran’s pin point pass found Averill who was one on one with the keeper but his goalbound shot was superbly saved.
Johnny Moodie also had an effort saved from Walker after a good pass from Sean Elmes.

Stewkley started the second half in brighter fashion and Rob Taylor was causing some problems for the Padbury defence. Taylor’s dangerous cross into the box found Joe Ellis but was unable to make proper contact so his effort went wide. A couple of minutes later Rob Taylor’s clever pass found Brad Finch but his effort was easily saved by Sam Walker.

In the 52nd minute Stewkley were awarded a free kick outside of the 18 yard box but Brad Finch’s effort was saved by Walker.
Phil Averill was again denied by Graham, Sean Elmes pin point pass found Averill but his shot forced a great save from the Stewkley keeper.

Padbury had lots of possession but were finding it difficult to break down the well organised Stewkley defence.
Stewkley finally broke the deadlock in the 74th minute, Rob

Myers proved too strong in the 18 yard box as he held off a couple of Padbury defenders and his pass found Mark Aldis who fired his shot into the bottom right hand corner with a great finish past the despairing Walker.

Player manager Craig Rumble nearly equalised when his powerful header from Matt Marsden’s corner was superbly tipped over the bar by Graham.

Padbury despite working hard were unable to breakdown a well organised Stewkley side and the visitors came away with the three points.

MAN OF THE MATCH – Jamie Graham (Stewkley) The Stewkley keeper made some magnificent saves to deny Padbury the goal they much needed.

Padbury Village crashed out of the Division One cup in an eleven goal thriller against a strong Willen side.

Liam Moran gave Padbury the perfect start with a superb goal when his powerful strike from outside the 18 yard box beat Willen goalkeeper James Green.

This gave Padbury more confidence as they looked more dangerous coming forward with Johnny Moodie and Phil Averill causing problems for the Willen defence as they dominated the first quarter of the game.

Willen, against the run of play, equalised with a neat move. Lee Worcester pin point pass found Ryan Guinnane, who put in a dangerous low cross from the left which was able to find Tom Rayner who poked in at the near post.

Willen then went ahead a couple of minutes later through Lee Worcester as he capitalised on a defensive error and hit the loose ball home.

However Padbury soon hit back with a tremendous equaliser. Phil Averill was brought down just outside the 18 yard box. Bobby Cooney stepped up and his free kick sailed into the top corner leaving keeper Green with no chance.

In the 31st minute Padbury regained the lead when Bobby Cooney’s cross found Liam Moran who hit a superb finish.

Luke Davis could have increased Padburys lead when he seized on a defensive error but his finish was superbly cleared off the line by Tom Rayner.

Willen did look dangerous going forward.

Ricky McAdam good through ball found the quick Ryan Guinnane but his effort went just wide of the post.

However just before half time Willen equalised with a good free kick from Tom Rayner which beat Alex Piggott in the Padbury goal.

Padbury had the first opportunity in the second half, Craig Rumble was fouled just outside the box. Bobby Cooney free kick was superbly saved by James Green who tipped the ball wide of the post.

Willen had other ideas and took the lead in the 57th minute when Ryan Guinnane headed in unchallenged from Tom Rayner’s corner.

Danny Howett extended the lead a couple of minutes later when he poked in from close range from a good long ball into the box.

Ricky McAdam could have extended Willen’s lead even further after a great pass by Guinnane but his effort was superbly saved by Piggott.

Padbury worked hard and tried to regain their composure to get back into the game.

With only three minutes to go Padbury got a goal back, Matt Marsden free kick into the box found Liam Moran whose header was saved by Green, however Joe Cooper was able to pounce on the loose ball to poke the ball in from close range to give Padbury some hope.

Willen pressed forward, Danny Wing lob over the keeper made it 6-4 to Willen and seal victory. Ryan Guinnane then scored with a neat finish in the dying seconds of the game to send Willen to the final.

Towcester Town Reserves proved too strong for Padbury Village Reserves as they comfortably cruised into the next round by scoring six second half goals.

Padbury Village Reserves were missing a couple of key players but put on a brave performance until the deadlock was broken just three minutes into the second half.

With the scheduled referee not being able to attend, Towcester manager Darren Smith kindly volunteered to officiate the game.

In cold but sunny conditions Towcester Town dominated the early stages of the first half.

Ian Rush had an opportunity to give Towcester the lead in the first minute but his effort went over the bar.

Left wing Dave Scanlon was giving problems for the Padbury defence with some dangerous crosses into the box.

Sam Porter also had a great opportunity to break the deadlock when he was able to lob Padbury keeper Tom Langley but his effort went just wide of the post.

Matt Farr hit the side netting and Gareth Collins shot wide following another good cross from Dave Scanlon.

Andy Smith also hit the crossbar with a superb long range effort.

Somehow Padbury were able to keep the Towcester attack at bay and defended bravely. Will Lee and player-manager Paul Cooper were having a solid game at the back and the Padbury players were working hard against a far stronger side.

In the 24th minute Padbury’s Jamie Doyle attempted a long range effort which was easily gathered by keeper James Barber.

Ian Rush had a couple of opportunities to give Towcester the lead but went wide or over the bar.

Jack Shaw also had a long range effort which went narrowly wide.

Langley was able to save Andy Smith’s long range effort and Adam Garrett’s flying header from a dangerous corner into the box hit the crossbar as the game reached 0-0 at half time.

Towcester started the second half in the same fashion, some brave defending by Harry Mayer and keeper Tom Langley they were able to block Matt Farr’s effort.

It seems Padbury were able to keep Towcester at bay which frustrated some of their players but finally in the 49th minute the deadlock was finally broken.

Dave Scanlon corner into the box was poked home by Adam Garrett.

James Watts could have equalised for Padbury following Dominic Wheway’s corner into the box but headed well wide of the post.

In the 59th minute Jack Shaw fine long range effort hit the post which rebounded to Ian Rush but his follow up was superbly saved by Langley.

Ted Brown, Ian Rush and Bruce Goodridge all tried long range efforts which went wide of the post or over the bar.

With twenty minutes to go Padbury were still in the game.

Dominic Wheway nearly gave Padbury an equaliser when his effort from James Watts cross went wide of the post.

However Matt Farr was able to put Towcester two up when he lobbed Langley with a neat finish.

A couple of minutes later Matt Farr increased the lead even further to put the game out of Padbury’s reach when he slotted the ball into the corner of the net following a good pass by Jack Shaw.

Jack Shaw turned from provider to scorer in the 82nd minute when his long range effort beat Langley and sailed into the top corner.

Charlie Lambrini and James Watts had a couple of shots on goal to test keeper Barber.

In the 86th minute Rush was able to poke in from close range to make it five.

A mix up between defence and keeper in the final seconds made it 6-0.
