The Badgers were put to the sword by Northern Premier League side Chasetown who gave Brocton a lesson in finishing after they were gifted the opening goal on 12 minutes when Kenny Devoir turned a right wing cross from Ryan Wynter past Calum Barrett. 

Wynter made it 2-0 when he rose on the far post to head home a cross from left winger Josh Ruff.

Chasetown’s confidence was by now sky high and they cut through the Brocton lines with ease to score in the their next two attacks as Wynter again and then centre forward Mitch Piggon took the Scholars lead to 4-0. In between the two goals Brocton replaced Josh Wilson with his namesake Josh D Wilson. 

Calum Barrett then saved well to stop Piggon making it 5-0  

Brocton tried to hit back and two good long range efforts from Jack Edwards tested home keeper John Bateman who twice saved at the expense of conceding corners which came to nothing. Sam Bell then beat full back Matt Curley and netted for the Badgers but the linesman ruled it out for the slightest of pushes by Bell on Curley as the defender tried to obstruct him from getting to the ball. 

Brocton replaced Dominic Dell with Dave Berks and switched Sam Bell to centre forward and for a while they looked to have steadied the ship. Bell curled as shot that looked destined for the top corner until Bateman turned it over with this finger tips. 

Dan Lomas was next to test Bateman after good approach work by Jack Edwards and at the other end Calum Barrett again showed his mettle to deny Piggon 

Chasetown then sent substitute Jack Langston on the replace Wynter and on 65 minutes he broke clear of the Brocton defence and fired past Barrett to make it 5-0. 

Brocton then tried hitting long balls over the top to try and exploit Bell’s pace but Chasetown stretched their lead to 6-0 on 75 minutes when Jack Langston netted the rebound after fellow substitute Robbie Banks had hit the bar. 

Brocton replaced Andrew Davis with Keenan Powell but there was no stopping Langston who completed his hat trick on 80 minutes. To their credit The Badgers kept plugging away and Dave Birks wriggled to create an opening only for Bateman to save at the expense of a corner which once again came to nothing.  Chasetown continued to show Brocton how to finish when Josh Ruff bagged a brace from close range in the last couple of minutes to take the final score to 9-0.
