HRI Harbury 5 Wellesbourne Wanderers 0
HRI were resplendent in their new kit curtesy of sponsors Reynolds Blinds of Leamington. It clearly worked as they were in control here. Three Ellard bothers, Bret, Aaron and Carl were all on the teamsheet for HRI but it was Greg Eales who was celebrating his recent marriage with a hat trick! His first a great header from a cross from Bret. Aaron popped up with a great finish from the edge of the box. The final goal coming after a Vitor Machado corner went straight in after it came off a defender. Wellesbourne always threatened but couldn’t find the net. HRI Harbury into the next round and Wellesbourne go into the supplementary Cup.
