THE KEITH Turner Cup was the first Redditch & South Warwickshire Combination final of the season and it proved to be a thrilling affair between the current top two in the Premier Division last Thursday.
The trophy was won by Black Horse who won a captivating penalty shoot-out 6-5 against Austin Ex-Apprentices after the match had finished 2-2 after extra time.
Black Horse also needed extra time to prevail in the BSA Cup semi-finals on Sunday, this time to see off the challenge of Rocklands as Dave Edwards proved to be the two-goal match-winner in a 4-2 success.
South Redditch will be the opposition in the final after Ashley Parker returned to haunt his old club with a hat-trick in a 5-2 victory at Wychbold RBL.
CBH Fasteners now sit top of Division One after their 6-1 victory at Beoley Village in which Sean Parish and Alistair Nash each scored twice.
Nick Smith also scored two as Alvechurch Sunday saw off visitors Mayfly 5-1 and Lodge Park gained a valuable point in a 1-1 draw at home to Alcester Town. The home side took the lead when an under pressure defensive clearance sailed over the keeper into the net, but Hughes levelled for the visitors later on.
SHTP’s outside title chances faded, despite an Aaron Brough double, as visitors Dagnell End Rovers finished 3-2 victors.
A Stuart Byng hat-trick sunk Redditch Cross as rivals New Woodland Cottage cemented a fifth placed finish in Division Two with an 8-2 home victory.
Evesham United Sunday won 3-2 on their travels at VKL United.
