Wheathampstead Wanderers cruised into the last 16 of the League Cup with a 8-0 home win over Birchanger.

A sluggish first-half saw Wanderers fail to convert dominance into goals, but they were much sharper after the break.

Both Tom Canham and Steve Buckler scored hat-tricks with Frankie Buckler and Jack Anscomb getting one each.

The man of the match was Richard Taaffe, who was full of craft in midfield.

Wheato entertain Ware Warriors in the league tomorrow (Saturday) at Marford Road hoping to repeat their win against the same side pre-season.
