BOLTON at Home Sunday League teams began the road to the University of Bolton Stadium with the first round of the Open Cup at the weekend.

And what a start it was for Tempest striker Heath Ainscow who scored six goals in a 7-2 victory over Breightmet Wanderers.

Breightmet actually drew first blood with a goal from Dillin Hewitt before Ainscow equalised in the 25th minute.

The same man added two more, the first after some excellent work by Kris Powers, but Liam Haycock replied instantly to the second of them by pulling it back to 3-2 just before half time.

Ainscow fired home his fourth in the 51st minute and rounded off a brilliant display of goalscoring with his last two in the 65th and 77th minutes before Myles Farmer completed the scoring.

Cup holders Top Club were drawn at home to Lowly Unity Brook who found the Little Hulton side in no mood to give up their title as they put them to sword with an emphatic 13-1 victory.

Adam Doyle and Tom Jones both scored hat-tricks, Callum Smith and Josh Smith got two goals each with Ash Kirkman, James Dickie and Travis Vaughn adding one apiece for Top Club.

Grapes beat Bolton Town 5-0 only three weeks ago in a league game, but Town avenged that defeat on Sunday with a 3-1 win.

The goalscorers for hosts Town – for whom Liam Parden-Bell was outstanding in central midfield – were Craig McClelland (two) and John Yates, with Tomas Coen getting the consolation for Grapes.

League leaders Newbury edged third-placed Dehaviland 2-1 after extra time, to progress to next round.

Dehaviland’s Arron McCarthy broke the offside trap to make it 1-0 in the 50th minute.

Newbury equalised with 10 minutes left when striker Dominic Sharples made no mistake with only the goalkeeper to beat.

With only a minute left of extra time Chris Lyons toe-poked the ball home in a goalmouth scramble.

In the league, Nelson Wanderers beat Great Lever Wanderers 5-4.

Kris Preston scored all four for Great Lever with Elliot Miller, Rob Hayes and Rob Tully among the Nelson scorers.
