FC STRATFORD cruised into the semi-finals of the Les James Challenge Cup as a dominant first-half performance saw them thrash Knowle 7-2 at the DCS Stadium.

Dave Poulson's side led 5-0 at the break with goals from Ash Wilkes, Jay Tilbury (2), Luke Mooney and Martin Kendashki.

Wilkes' second put Stratford 6-0 ahead before Knowle struck back twice to add some respectability back to the scoreline.

Tilbury then completed his hat-trick with Stratford's seventh on 70 minutes.

In Midland League Division Three, Alcester Town secured their seventh league win of the season after edging out Castle Vale Town 2-1 at Stratford Road.

Marc Grogan put Alcester ahead just before half-time and the striker then doubled Alcester's lead early in the second half.

Vale got one back, but Alcester held strong to seal the points and remain sixth in the table.

Shipston Excelsior suffered only their third league defeat of the season as they were thrashed 5-0 by Montpellier.

In Midland League Division Two, Gary Davison enjoyed a dream start as manager of Earlswood Town as his new look team swept aside Sutton United 5-1.
