WOODBURY booked a place in the next round of the Football Express Cup with a 4-2 victory at Alphington, writes John Bennett.

The short journey to the ground must have suited the villagers for they dished up an impressive all-round performance that brought them a much-deserved success.

The side carried on from where they had left off the previous weekend and notched four, first half goals.

Alex Hughes was the star of this particular show as he scored the first and third goals and had a hand in the two others scored by Ian Locke and an own goal.

Just before half-time, Alphington scored to give themselves hope and, in the second half, they added a second goal with 15 minutes left to play.

Woodbury saw out the rest of the game, which was played in a swirling wind that made flowing football impossible.

Once again, the Woodbury defence was in fine form and goalkeeper Sam Pike's handling in the difficult conditions was immaculate.

This Saturday Woodbury travel to Hemyock for a League match.
