Holders Woofferton Football Club crash 4-1 at Orleton Colts in Herefordshire League Jock Handley Cup
Orleton Colts 4 Woofferton 1
HOLDERS Woofferton crashed out of the Herefordshire League Jock Handley Cup at the first hurdle.
Will Caswell put Orleton Colts on the road to a derby victory over Woofferton, who missed a crucial penalty.
Caswell added a second goal, while Jake Goode and Alex King also netted.
Danny Gower had a penalty-kick brilliantly saved for Woofferton before bagging a second-half consolation goal.
''Orleton deserved to win,” said Woofferton’s player and secretary Dave ‘Magnum’ Thomas.
“We had the better of them for the first 15 minutes, but Orleton scrapped more than us and wanted it more.”
Thomas added: ''We're the cup holders and it's a shame to bow out.”
Woofferton travel to Wellington Colts in Division One this Saturday, while Orleton Colts make the trip to Ewyas Harold Reserves.
