Graeme's Summary

Horden started this cup game on the front foot against last seasons’ semi finalists and took the lead when Jack Pounder headed across goal for Michael Robson to head home. It was soon two for the home side when James Connor won the ball in the corner and played in Pounder who from a tight angle fired an unstoppable shot into the top corner. HT 2-0.

The second half started the same as the second with Horden dominating and they got their third when Robert Renwick unleashed a left footed shot into the bottom corner giving the keeper no chance. Witton Park gave themselves a lifeline when they pulled a goal back but it was short lived as Horden stepped up a gear and got two more goals. Again it was Pounder and Renwick who got their names on the scoresheet rounding off an excellent team performance to take Horden CW Supporters into the last sixteen of the County Cup.
