BLACK HORSE ended the hopes of fellow Bromsgrove and District League side Meadow Park to reach the quarter-finals of the Worcestershire FA Premier Cup.

Black Horse prevailed 6-3 last Sunday, with six different goalscorers in Dale Edwards, Sean Brain, Joe Adams, Matthew Chambers, Brad Birch and Shay Palmer.

Black Horse now visit Upton Snodsbury in the last eight later this month.

Belbroughton bowed out, losing 4-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw against Worcester League side Callow End.

Ricky Cowdell had given Belbroughton the lead in the 35th minute, against the run of play, but they were pegged back a 90th-minute penalty after right-back Jay Paraside handled on the line and was sent off.

Four out of the six BDFL sides progressed in the WFA Junior Cup.

Chaddesley Corbett keeper Chris Crook was sent off BEFORE their match with Colwall St James but his side ran out comfortable 8-2 winners.

Crook was dismissed having been embroiled in a disagreement with the referee over sock tape in the pre-match check.

Richard Ash donned the gloves and Chaddesley eased through with goals from Mark Bellingham (4), Dan Weston (2), Ben Corcoran and an own goal.

Awkies Allstars produced one of the best results in the second round, winning 5-3 against Kidderminster League side Wyre Forest.

Mike Wakeman and Jase Gibbons put Awkies 2-0 ahead, but then conceded twice and had Callum Parker sent off. But Matt Adams and Ashleigh Tullett netted late on and an own goal sealed the win.

However, Wychbold crashed out 3-2 to AFC Claines and Hizza exited to top Evesham League side Bretforton OB.

In the WFA Minor Cup, Paul Halfpenny grabbed a hat-trick to help Stoke Works demolish visitors Pebworth. Ryan Cooper also struck twice in a 7-0 scoreline.

Anthony Ward (2) and Sam Shearer were on target as Chaddesley Corbett Reserves chalked up a 3-0 win at Spennells United while Colin Rudge, Will Symonds and George Brighton netted in Meadow Park Youth’s 3-0 victory against Worcester side Grosvenor Sports.

In the Worcester Nursing Minor Cup, Studley Lions overcame VBL Sports 3-1 in their rearranged first round game after the first match had been abandoned due to injury.

Lions roared with Nick Briggs, Habib Buaben and Jamie Walsh scoring to set up a trip to Arrow.
