FC United of Bolsover stay on course for league and cup double
Second Division champions FC United of Bolsover continued their fantastic season by reaching the final of the Dey and Co Alma Cup in the NAPIT Chesterfield and District Sunday League.
Goals from Ash Cheetham, Josh Parfitt, Jack Weaver and Nick Grayson presented United with the opportunity to complete a league and cup double if they can overcome Hasland Devonshire or Tibshelf Town who meet in the second semi-final.
Britannia Rose were beaten in the semis of the Derbyshire FA Junior Sunday Cup earlier in the season but encountered no such problems in the last four of the league’s Chatsworth Cup as they beat Bolsover Town 3-1 thanks to strikes by Callum Featherstone, Declan Jenkins and Ben Meadley.
In the Hutson Cup, a hat-trick from Pete Stubley helped propel Furnace Hill Hurricanes into the final, where they will meet Astwith All Stars. Stubley’s three goals came in a 7-1 rout of Brimington Club and were supplemented by efforts from Neil Hollingworth, Keith Parkes, Adam Fareham and Joe Lloyd.
In the league itself, Hepthorne Lane missed the chance to move into pole position in Division One after being held to a 1-1 draw by Tibshelf Town. Dan Titmus found the net for Lane and Sam Harris for the visitors.
Elsewhere, Wingerworth BMB were put to the sword by a rampant Doe Lea side who beat them 6-0, Grant Mitchell scoring twice and Joe Lambird, Ash Morton, Dean Spencer and Stuart Robinson bagging one apiece.
In Division Two, bottom side Matlock Town Wanderers recorded only their second win of the season, beating Creswell Black Diamond Reserves 3-2, while Brampton Rovers JMA completed their league fixtures with a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Dronfield Victoria.
