SALISBURY booked their second cup final of the season on Tuesday night, as they won at Wessex League Division One leaders Amesbury 3-0 in the semi-final of the Salisbury Hospital Cup.

A strong Whites line-up took to the field to take on the Blues and they led after seven minutes thanks to Claudio Herbert.

The visitors then double their advantage on the 22 minute mark from Chris Flood.

The home side hit back with a couple of chances from Dan Finnigan, who was played his 300th game for Amesbury and Luke Greenway.

Salisbury’s Lewis Benson then a chance cleared off the line and Amesbury’s Paddy Crease made an excellent save to deny Matt Partridge as it remained 2-0 at the break.

After the interval, the Whites added a third after 76 minutes from Kane O’Keefe which made sure of their passage into the final, where they will face Bemerton Heath Harlequins.

A date and venue for the final has yet to be decided.

Salibsury are of course in the Wiltshire Senior Cup final on Wednesday night at Melksham, where they face Southern League Premier South rivals Swindon Supermarine.

However, before he Whites can focus on winning their first piece of silverware this campaign, they will be looking to make sure of booking their in the end of season play-offs at Dorchester.

Salisbury could have booked their place last Saturday, but lost to Gosport Borough with Elliot Wheeler sent-off and he will miss the next two games due to suspension.

The loss saw the Whites remain fourth in the table, but they have lost ground on second placed Met Police who now have 74 points and Taunton have 73, while King's Langley are fifth on 63 points and all teams have four games left to play.

Saturday, trip to Dorchester will not be an easy one as once again Salisbury will playing on a 3G pitch.

They will also face a side who since new manager Callum Brooks has taken over the Magpies, they have climbed up to 14th in table after losing just once in their last seven games.

Salisbury manager Steve Claridge said: "I don't think we played as bad as everyone is saying against Gosport. We had a 20 minute spell in the second half with some gilt-edged chances. Then they score and straight after we have a player sent-off.

"We know the Dorchester game is going to be a tough one. We have a few players who can't play on the 3G, but I think at the moment we have lost our mojo and that is what we need to get back ahead of play-offs.
