Morris Street may have lost their Swindon & District League George Thomas/Don Rogers Cup semi-final against DJC Marlborough but they did score one of the goals of the day.

It was centre back James Turpie who provided the sublime finish after a slick passing move from a free-kick.

Turpie’s shot crashed into the Marlborough net off the underside of the bar but it was little more than a consolation goal for his side as they went down 6-2.

Marlborough led this cup clash 1-0 at half-time courtesy of Vasile Valentin Rascanescu’s tap in after Morris Street’s goalkeeper Chris Ferris failed to claim a high ball.

Rascanescu added two more goals in the second-half to clinch his hat-trick while Lee Connolly, Adam Bukowski and Anthony Duckett scored Marlborough’s other goals.

Turpie and Carl Marsh added two goals in quick succession but with just minutes remaining of the match they both proved nothing more than consolation efforts.
