Ash Artwell ‘unplayable’ as Bracknell Town romp to semi finals

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.

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:
