NORTH Bucks & District Premier Division league leaders Great Horwood have been knocked out of the Premier Division Trophy by Grendon Rangers at the first hurdle.

Alex Emery’s 89th minute strike was the only goal to send Horwood crashing out.

There was much better news for Thornborough Athletic however, as they beat MK Titans 5-0.

Despite fielding an under-strength side, Neal Kidwell’s side cruised into the second round with a brace from Al Hoggart and a goal each for Tom Kelsall, Ben Watts and Kev Molloy.

In the Interdivsional Trophy, both Brackley Sports and Yardley Gobion crashed out in the preliminary round after defeats to Bow Brickhill and Statonbury Social Elite respectively.

Meanwhile, in the league, Great Horwood, who were in cup action, lost top spot to City Colts, who thrashed Great Linford 6-1.
