TENBURY United stormed into the last eight of the Herefordshire Challenge Cup with a 4-2 win at Hinton.

And joint manager Nick Stocker is hoping the victory can boost his side as they embark on a tough run of games that will see them take on Holme Lacy and Ewyas Harold in the Herefordshire League Premier Division.

Two goals from Mark Boucker set the foundations for Saturday’s win with Mike Foster and youngster Jordan Morris wrapping things up late on.

“It was a positive result from quite a tight game that swung one way then the other,” Stocker explained.

“We won it with two late goals.

“It has been a tough start to the season and our next two games are against the sides in first and second place.

"That will mean we will have played five of the top six sides but if we can keep picking up points then hopefully we will benefit later in the season.”

Boucker twice handed Tenbury the lead at Hinton – his second with a neat volley from a Chris Patton cross at the start of the second half – only for the home side to level each time.

But the visitors finished strongly and regained the lead 10 minutes from time when Foster used his strength to force the ball over the line.

The pick of the goals came five minutes later when teenager Morris cut in off the right flank and, from a narrow angle, drilled a shot into the roof of the Hinton net.

Jim Lambert, chief executive of the Herefordshire Football Association, confirmed that the draw for the quarter-finals will be made at a committee meeting.

In the Premier Division, Tenbury Town were 3-2 winners at basement side Hereford Lads Club Reserves.

Dean Morris led the way with a brace and Robbie Gittens was also on the scoresheet.

Orleton Colts were involved in a high-scoring match at Wellington Rangers where they went down 7-4 – a result that kept their hosts third in the table.

In Division One, Woofferton came from behind to win 2-1 at home to previously unbeaten Hinton Reserves.

The players took a while to adjust to a new formation and the Blues fell behind when Bryn Martin headed into his own net from a free-kick.

But the introduction of experienced pair Dean Harding and Marian Jusko unsettled the opposition in the second half and the scores were level on 70 minutes when Dan Gower netted with a long-range header from a Si Bradley cross.

The winner came ten minutes from time thanks to another Gower header, Harding the supplier on this occasion.

Two goals from Jake Conod helped Orleton Town Reserves to a 6-2 win at home to Weston under Penyard, Kieron Hollis and substitute Matthew Tilson scoring the others.

But there was disappointment for Ludlow Town Colts who lost 4-3 at home to Holme Lacy Reserves, James Byatt, Scott Guilbert and Toby Siveter with the goals.
