P Teetgen (3)
The Football Pink, Saturday October 17th 1959
Wootton Bassett, meeting Pinehurst for the fifth time this season, led 1-0 at the interval in their Amateur Cup replay at Pinehurst.
Although a strong following wind supported their attack, Pinehurst wasted many opportunities when in a scoring position.
The Wootton Bassett defence were perplexed by the high bouncing ball but the goal-keeper was seldom called into action except to watch ball after ball sail over the bar.
After 23 minutes, Wootton Bassett broke away and the persistent Teetgen followed through smartly to give the visitors the lead.
Teetgen (2) scored for Wootton Bassett in the second half and Prothero for Pinehurst.

Wootton Bassett go from triumph to triumph. Their latest was in the Amateur Cup when they put paid to Pinehurst's aspirations in that direction.
This was the fifth meeting between the pair in the nine weeks the season has been open so one could say the Wootton Bassett boys have profited most by the experience and put the knowledge they have gained best into practice. Actually they have not lost a single one of those five games and have won three of them outright. The two have yet to meet again in the League and there is still the Wilts Cup.
On Saturday Wootton Bassett held on grimly to survive a first half battle against the wind and the forwards gave thanks – and heart – to their hard-worked defence by snatching what was almost the only goal scoring chance in that half. Peter Teetgen was the scorer and in the easier second half he went on to complete his hat-trick.
Jimmy Prothero, who has been among the goals regularly of late, kept his hand in by scoring Pinehurst's only reply. Wootton Bassett's reward for this win was to act as hosts to Radstock Town in the divisional semi-final this afternoon.
