  1. With no game today we took in the quarter final of the Junior Cup in what turned out to be a 13 goal thriller at St Stephen. Have to say that St Stephen were worthy winners over what looked like a depleted Holywell (only 12 players). The home side looked like they were going to score at will in the first half and had an early goal disallowed and missed numerous other chances before going in to the interval 3-1 up. With the visitors playing with only one up front St Stephen's experienced centre half pairing of Joe Stone and Lee Whetters were rarely troubled. The floodgates opened in a second half 'goal fest' and witnessed 9 goals - a further 6 for St Stephen - inc. 2 penalties and 3 for Holywell including arguably the goal of the game for their 2nd on 81 mins. Holywell were also reduced to 10 men late in the game for St Stephen's first penalty on 70 mins. Overall St Stephens were always in control and were never threatened apart from a late flourish from Holywell in second half injury time. Good luck to St Stephens in the semi-final.
