SALISBURY FC are through to the second round of the Wiltshire Senior Cup following the 13-0 thrashing of Bassett Bulldogs on Tuesday night writes Jamie Hodge.

Against a fairly unknown opposition, Steve Claridge experimented with his side and gave starts to youngsters Charlie Rayfield, Josh Sommerton and Jack Stanley.

From the outset the Whites dominated and were 5-0 up after just 25 minutes, with goals from Callum Brockway who scored on his return from injury, Stuart Green and a 23 minute hat-trick from Claudio Herbert.

The Bulldogs, who currently play their trade in the Swindon & District Division One and are currently in 17th position with only one win from 10 games, never looked like scoring and it soon became 6-0 when Bulldogs’ Danny Dhilon managed to put the ball past his own keeper to extend Salisbury’s lead.

Green then added two more for the Whites scoring his hat-trick five minutes before half time, he then turned provider for Eddie Perrett who couldn’t miss with a tap in to score his first of the game. The half time whistle went with the score 9-0 to Salisbury.

The Whites started the second half as they finished the first and Benson scored almost straight from the kick off to make it ten.

The Whites then added a further three goals with Perrett slotting home another two well taken goals to get his hat-trick, before Green headed home to get his fourth of the game.

The game finished 13-0 to Salisbury on a cold, rainy evening at the Ray Mac, capping of a miserable evening for the Bulldogs, but this did not dampen the spirits of the Bassett Bulldogs fans who were in fine voice throughout the game and created a great atmosphere.
