Bracknell Town are 90 minutes from a cup final for the third season in succession after beating Folkestone Invicta 4-1 at Larges Lane on Tuesday night in the Velocity Trophy Quarter Finals.
Ash Artwell hit the headlines with one Bracknell supporter calling him ‘unplayable’ as he scored twice and had a hand in the Robins other two goals to earn a place in the last four.
Artwell scored after 19 and 35 minutes, sandwiching an own goal to give Bracknell a 3-0 half time lead against Invicta, who play a division above the Robins in the Bostik League. Joe Grant got Bracknell’s fourth on 56 minutes before Johan Ter Horst got a consolation on 76 minutes.
Manager Geoff Warner shuffled his pack a little with Chris Grace recalled from Binfield for the injured Mark Scott, while loanee James Cowan replaced Seb Bowerman in the starting eleven due to an injury sustained before kick off.
The Robins will now face AFC Hornchurch in the semi finals. The full draw is here after a night that produced this fantastic sequence of results:
