Football

The borough will have a healthy turnout in the later stages of the county cups after a good day for our sides on Saturday.

In-form Asfordby and Wymeswold both made it through to the last 16 of the County FA Saturday Intermediate Cup after contrasting second-round ties.

Asfordby hosted Kibworth Town at Hoby Road and came through after a dramatic penalty shoot-out.

Mark Cowling, Junior Gaskin and Stan Logan were all on target for the home team, but the sides were locked 3-3 at full-time before Asfordby came through the shoot-out 5-3.

Wymeswold’s progress was more straightforward as Sam Allen’s brace and a Dean Copson strike saw them overcome Castle Donington 3-1.

North Leicestershire League sides Clawson Kings, Asfordby Development, Bottesford Reserves and Wymeswold Reserves will all feature in the last 16 of the Saturday Vase.

Luke Kightley’s hat-trick helped Clawson Kings thrash Loughborough FC A 6-2 at the All England Ground, in Melton, with Chris Buck, Jamie Kightley, and Darren Lightbown also on target.

Jamie Felstead and Leon Watson netted as Asfordby FC Development won 2-0 at Quorn Rangers, while Division Three leaders Wymeswold Reserves maintained their unbeaten record this season with a 6-1 win at Woodhouse Imperial Reserves.

Luke Howitt claimed a hat-trick, allied to goals from Gregory Fletcher, Callum Johnston and Curtis Mildenhall, and Bottesford Reserves came through after their opponents conceded the tie.
