Shipham gained revenge for their league defeat with a hard fought win in the cup with New centre forward Tricks scoring both goals. Both sides started with numerous changes in personnel from their league encounter. With James Williams deservedly promoted to the first team, Paul Faulkner started in goal for the visitors. He obviously hasn’t learnt his lesson in that he continues to play well and look so assured in goal which means he keeps getting asked. The downside is that Wrington lose his control in the centre of midfield. Shipham chose to play up the slope in the first half and the visitors started brightly. Tom Lucas was a livewire on the right and combined well with Joe Moore to set up several chances. Kev Lillwall, starting for the first time this season bedded in well along side Betts who continued his impressive form in midfield. It was Betts who came closest to scoring in the first half with a fine header which smacked against the crossbar. The new centre back pairing of Martin Jones and Scott Gallacher were largely untroubled and handled everything thrown at them as Wrington penned the home side in their own half. Shipham defended stoutly and although Wrington had a number of attacking throws and corners Wrington could not force any clear openings.
With the elements now in their favour Shipham pushed forward in the second half but the pattern remained the same in that there were very few chances created. It seemed obvious that the best chance in such a tight game would come from a set piece and so it proved. A fine curling near post delivery from a corner by Blair was parried by Faulkner but Captain Tom Lauton was first to the rebound and his cross was bundled in by Centre forward Tricks. Now with a literally uphill task, Wrington responded and came close with Betts again going one on one with the keeper but Jack Frazer proved up to the task and also brought out another fine save from a Selman freekick which was heading for the bottom corner. However, the visitors inevitably tired and it was good to see Dean Rix come on as a replacement having recovered from a long term injury and Dave Valle also slotted into midfield with 20 minutes left. As Wrington pushed for an equaliser, Shipham again disrupted an attacking throw in and Ryan Poole counter attacked on the right. After a few ricochets, Tricks was put through on goal and duly settled the match with a cool finish for his second of the game.
