Timsbury Athletic are through to the final of the Somerset County League Cup for Premier and Division 1 clubs after a comfortable 6-0 win away to Castle Cary. Two up at the interval the visitors scored another brace within seven minutes of the second half starting and thereafter the result was never in doubt.
Timsbury began strongly and after Rhys Cook had shot wide both Lewis Blannin and Ellis Hancock had headers saved by keeper James Stuart. At the other end a free-kick from Oakley Page was blocked by the Timsbury wall and another chance to Iwan Walters was cleared by the visitors rearguard.
The breakthrough came in the 25th minute. Callum Taylor came up for an Ebner Heatley corner and headed past Stuart. Four minutes later Taylor was at it again ghosting in to head home George Zaharia’s free-kick. Timsbury keeper Jack Scrivens then came into the game saving superbly from a Keiran Frapple rocket. Stuart then saved well from Hancock and right on half-time Zaharia hit the bar for the visitors.
Two minutes into the second half Blannin raced clear and rounded Stuart before adding the third and five minutes later a clinical strike from Heatley made it 4-0. Timsbury were well on top and a long range effort from substitute Phil Wake, which flew well over the top, was all Castle Cary had to offer. Timsbury substitute Toby Neilson then saw his powerful shot parried by Stuart but Hancock was on hand to score the easiest goal he will ever have.
Charlie Elsworthy shot just over after a gallant home side kept going and Scrivens made another fine save from Wake. Neilson put the icing on the cake heading home Timsbury’s sixth goal from Cook’s free-kick as the visitors progressed to a meeting in the final with Premier League side Shirehampton.
