Swindon Supermarine FC takes Victory in the Wiltshire FA Senior Cup Final

Salisbury FC lost their grip on the Wiltshire FA Senior Cup last week when they were beaten 3-1 by Swindon Supermarine FC in the final at Melksham Town.

Both of the teams competing in the final play in the Evo-Stik League South – Premier Division South which added to the excitement of the match.

Marine went ahead in the first half when Henry Spalding curled the ball into the top corner of the goal, giving Salisbury goal keeper, Jake Hallett, no chance.

Salisbury’s problems worsened on at the beginning of the second half when Marine doubled their lead with a goal from Harry Williams.

Salisbury looked to respond as the second half continued with Supermarine keeper, Martin Horsell, making a cracking save on the 58th minute. Pressure from Salisbury continued with a shot just off target from Daniel Young and an equalising own goal from Joe Shepherd at 85 minutes making the score 2 -1 to Marine.

With Hallett making great saves at one end, Salisbury’s strikers continued to search for the goal they needed to equalise but with time running out, Stuart Fleetwod made a break and secured the third and final goal for Marine in extra time.

This is the third time Swindon Supermarine FC have claimed the Wiltshire FA Senior Cup victory.

Salisbury FC: Hallett, Downing, Sommerton, Mullings, Wheeler, Dawson, Hopper, Young, O’Keefe, Herbert, Whelan.

Swindon Supermarine FC: Horsell, Shepherd, Hopkins, Edge, Dinsley, Liddiard, Fleetwood, McDonagh, Williams, Spalding, Campbell.
