Upottery made a bright start and got an early lead through a great strike from Brad Morris.

The lead was doubled when Cody Tratt-Skinner scored from the spot after Owen McCreadie-Taylor was upended in the area and that’s how the contest was at half-time with Upottery 2-0 to the good.

The second half began with end-to-end action. Upottery goalkeeper Jake Welch pulled of a brilliant save, and both teams hit the woodwork, but it was Owen McCreadie-Taylor who managed to find the back of the net to make it 3-0.

Bampton hit back, but Cody Tratt-Skinner saw the keeper off his line and took full advantage to score his second to make it 4-1.

The final goal was a superbly struck free-kick that Tratt-Skinner rifled into the top corner to seal a 5-1 success.

The Upottery Man of the Match honours were shared by Cody Tratt-Skinner and glovesman Jake Welch.
