New side to the Alliance Webby's Wanderers won 5-1 away at unbeaten Countesthorpe Athletic Old Boys to land themselves in the quarter finals of the Bill Walton Cup.

Both teams are in division 3 and with Countesthorpe looking like run away winners it looked like a tough game for Webby's, the Wanderers top scorer Matt Blake was on hand to get his 15th goal of the campaign to put them in the next round with premier opposition Premier Sports Travel.
