Potton eased their way into the South Midlands Floodlit Cup quarter-finals with an 11-0 win over Essex Senior League strugglers Stansted on Tuesday night.

Four goals from Brett Donnelly and one apiece from Brad Harrison, Ian Morrison and Paul Garrett gave the Royals a 7-0 half-time lead.

Garrett added his second early in the second half and this was followed by a Nathan Buckland penalty, a Gareth Cottenden header and a close range finish from Lee Allinson.

This equalled Potton's best ever result, an 11-0 win over Ramsey under Ken Davidson.

But Potton suffered their third home defeat in eight days on Saturday with a 3-1 defeat against promotion-chasing Wellingborough Town.

They put in a much better performance from their previous two games and a fierce 15-yard strike from Garrett gave the home side the lead.

A Darren Collins header brought the visitors level just before the break and it was Collins who put them in front midway through the second half.

With Potton pushing up to find an equaliser, Wellingborough broke through with three minutes remaining.

The defence stopped for an offside flag and Alfie Taylor reacted quickest to the referee allowing play to continue and slotted the ball past Brad Gillham.
