Match Report

Grantham v RTC Somerset

Grantham welcomed RTC Somerset in the last 16 of the cup after playing each other 3 weeks earlier both teams knew what to except. Grantham cme firing out of the blocks and scored within 40 seconds when a lovely ball from Smith found Manning through who calmly slotted past the Goalkeeper to mkae it 1-0. Chances then started to come both ends with both keepers pulling off some very good saves. Grantham extended their lead when a cross was delivered by Perry-Burdett was hit sweetly on the half volley by Wedgwood which squirmed unde the Goalkeeper to make it 2-0. Just before half time it was 3-0 after good work from Smith and Stokes found Thorngate-Vega who smashed home from 25 yards into the roof of the net. Into the 2nd half and again both teams had chances to change the scorline and it was Grantham who added to it first when Manning won the ball back high and again cooly slotted past the Keeper. RTC Somerset scored a free kick to make the score 5-1 but then Wedgwood was at it again when he put the ball onto his right foot and curled it into the top corner to make it 5-1 with 10 minutes to go. Fair Play to RTC Somerset who didn't give up and scored two late but very good goals to make it 5-3 the same scoreline in the league just 3 weeks ago. 

All the best to all the RTC Somerset Players for the rest of the season
