Royal Wootton Bassett Town will have two representatives in this year's North Wilts League Cup finals after the Under 15 and 18 Blue teams were victorious in their semi final encounters.

However, there was extra time heartbreak for the Under 16 Blues, who will be unable to make it three league cup crowns in a row.

The Under 15 Blues edged a thriller against plucky Division Two opponents Castle Combe Colts, who fought Bassett all the way. The teams shared six goals in normal time, with Kevin Prouse (2) and Harry Farrow scoring for Bassett. Otis Lewis then popped up with the winner in extra time to seal victory by the odd goal in seven.

They will now face Swindon Supermarine J in the final after they defeated Division One champions FC Chippenham Youth White 5-4.

Meanwhile, the Under 18 Blues bounced back from their Wiltshire Youth Cup final defeat with a 3-1 triumph against Division Two champions-elect Highworth Town Juniors H, giving them another shot at silverware. Bailey Gallagher led the way with a brace while Charlie McCuish completed the scoring.

They will take on Division Two Stratton Juniors Pumas in the final after they defeated Cirencester Town 4-1. Bassett have already beaten Stratton this season, prevailing 3-2 in the last four of the Wiltshire Youth Cup.

The Under 16 Blues' final four clash with Cirencester Town Centurions was a classic, though, unfortunately, Bassett were unable to advance.

They trailed Cirencester 2-0 at half time. But two goals from Luca Robinson and a further strike from Marshall Thompson put Bassett ahead, only for the Centurions to conjure up a late equaliser. Cirencester then went on to score twice in extra time to seal a 5-3 victory.

In league action, the Under 12 Blues recorded a vital victory in their fight for survival in Division Two. Away against Hungerford Town Juniors Black, they produced an outstanding team display, ultimately sealing the win thanks to Finlay Hyde's late brace. His first came from the penalty spot before he slotted home following great build up play from Caden Jefferies and Sam Smith.
