FOOTBALL - Bourton and Frankton bow out of Junior Cup in first round

Rugby Editorial 4th Oct, 2022   0

BOURTON and Frankton were unable to produce an upset as they were beaten 4-1 away at Fillongley in the first round of the Telegraph Junior Cup.

Bourton started brightly but were unable to convert their early chances before a stunning solo goal handed the home side the lead.

And Fillongley were quick to extend their lead with a pair of quickfire goals to take the game away from Bourton as the home side’s midfield began to boss proceedings.

However, Bourton were handed a lifeline just before half time when Daniel McManus scored from the penalty spot after Jordan Jackson was brought down in the area.




Despite a spirited second half showing, Bourton were unable to reduce the deficit further as Fillongley, who play two division above, wrapped up the win with a penalty.
