Bridge swept aside a decent Elton team to progress to the Runcorn Cup semi final with a good 4-0 win. Elton started the better and went close in the 11th minute with Adam Beech in the Timber goal
having it covered and watcheing it go wide. Bridge then settled and started some neat passing and went ahead when Wes Farringtons wicked corner was scrambled away and predator Alan Bond skillfully
headed over the keeper from 10 yards to give Bridge the lead. In the 20th minute Timber extended their lead with a well worked move, Liam Sweeney playing a good one two with Alan Bond who then
crossed for Sweeney to side foot home from 12 yards to give the keeper no chance. Sweeney then started the move for goal number 3, setting Josh Smith down the left hand side, Smith danced past the
defender and pulled the ball back for Alan Bond to fire home his 2nd and Timbers 3rd. Karl Jenkins then scored the 4th with a great free kick from 25 yards out, the keeper watching helplessly as it
found the corner. The 2nd half was a closer affair with Elton having a good share of posession, Adam Beech making 2 fine saves to keep the score at 4-0, and with Bridge losing Wes Farrington and
Ray Mcdonald through injury early in both halves, Timbers backline of Jamie Cumpper, David sheakey and Chris Ellams all stood firm to take Timber through to the semi final. Bridge Timbers man of
the match was David Sheakey who started in midfield before switching to the back and having a great all round game.
