PERSHORE Town were beaten on penalties by league winners Studley FC to suffer a second round exit in the Bluefin Sports Cup.

The Plums forced a shootout through Sam Clark’s equaliser 10 minutes into time added on after Studley had led at the break.

However, Brendon Bunn was the hero for Studley after he saved Aidan Clark’s penalty as the Bees converted all five of their penalties to win 5-3 at the Community Stadium.

Neither keeper was troubled in a dull first half before Studley’s Sam Jackson was pulled down in the box from Jake Bloomer’s long throw on the stroke of half time.

And Sean Brain converted the resulting penalty to send the Bees into the break with a half time lead.

Despite Pershore dominating the ball in the second period, Studley almost doubled their lead when Harvey Smith struck the post.

However, the home side continued to press for an equaliser and eventually got their reward when S Clark rose highest to head home from a corner deep into injury time.

And Pershore missed their first spot kick when A Clark’s effort was saved by Bunn with Studley going on to score all five of their penalties.

The Plums are next in action at home to Shrivenham on Saturday, April 9 with kick-off at 3pm at the Community Stadium.
