Wheato exit County Cup

St Ippolyts victorious against Wanderers

County Cup

Wheathampstead Wanderers 2

St Ippolyts 5

WHEATHAMPSTEAD were dumped out of the County Cup 5-2 to a well organised and determined St Ippolyts from the North & Mid Herts League.

The tie was effectively over after 10 minutes as Saints racked up three goals in quick succession while Wheato were still pulling their boots on.

Wanderers pulled one back through skipper Liam Heffer before the break and the second half was much more of a contest, with striker Alex Vaughan stabbing home his 11th goal of the season from close range but it was far too much of a hill to climb for Wheathampstead and the visitors clung on to their early lead.

Heffer’s performance in midfield and his eighth goal of the campaign earned him Man of the Match. Ed Frost continues to impress alongside him and full-back Dean Baker demonstrated his willingness to head the ball at whatever height he finds it.
