Moles Set Up Final Date With Robins

Cup-tied players, injuries and suspensions forced both teams into multiple changes ahead of this County Cup Semi-Final. The Moles took an early advantage as Sean Moore pounced on a slip in defence before going on to score with a fine finish. Binfield continued to dominate for the remainder of the half with Joe Purcell pulling off three good saves to keep the visitors at bay. However, the ball fell kindly for Liam Ferdinand in added time, the striker gratefully cracked the ball home to double the lead going into the break.

A crazy seven-minute period early in the second period saw the teams trade goals for fun as both sides scored two each. Grant Kemp started the goal frenzy when he calmly slotted under the advancing Purcell. Two minutes later Sam O’Neill scored with a neat turn and chip over Liam Vaughan from twenty yards. The Moles responded when Ferdinand slipped the ball through to James Knight to score. Not to be outdone, the Swans responded again as Adam Pryke set up Dom Lawless who neatly slotted the ball home at the near post.

Newport pushed for another goal to get back into the game but were caught on the break as Luke Hayden scored Binfield’s fifth. The Swans scored again in the eightieth minute after Vaughan palmed Remy Forrester’s shot straight to Luke Emery who made no mistake from close range. Ferdinand found himself in space as he booked Binfield’s well deserved place in the Berks & Bucks Senior Trophy for what promises to be a tasty clash against their nearest neighbours Bracknell Town.
