Boss Lee Milton celebrated the biggest win of his managerial career as Huntingdon United stormed into the Hunts Intermediate Cup semi-finals.

United dished out a 17-0 drubbing to Ramsey Town in a quarter-final clash last Saturday. They led their higher-level visitors 6-0 at the break and then ran riot in the second half.

Carl Foreman led the way with five goals, while Dom Everett and Darren Blackwell both hit hat-tricks. Tommy Evans and Lloyd Howard hit two goals apiece for United with Aaron Petty and Scott Rogers completing the scoring.

“It was a competitive game for the opening 10 minutes,” said Milton. “But we scored twice in quick succession and that seemed to kill Ramsey.

“They knocked us out of the Hunts Junior Cup last season so it was nice to get a bit of revenge.”

Huntingdon United will face one of Milton’s former clubs - Somersham Town - in the semi-finals. They progressed thanks to a solitary Christian Wiggins-Browne strike in a 1-0 victory at Bluntisham Rangers.
