NEWMARKET Town F.C are through to the semi-final of the Presidents Cup thanks to a 6-2 away win over Leeview.
Newmarket ran the show and soon found themselves 4-0 up at half-time. The three goals all came from TJ Bodie set-pieces with centre back Trevor Murphy scoring two and the other an own goal. Leeview couldn't handle the physical presence of the Murphy brothers and Stack brothers.
Newmarket made it five after the break with Colin Stack getting on the scoresheet. Leeview hit back with a goal but Newmarket bounced straight back with a sublime sixth, scored by Kevin O'Connor thanks to great one-two and marvellous finish from Kevin. Leeview grabbed a consolation making the final score 6-2. Newmarket now have a home tie for the semi against Dunbar Celtic.
