Great Baddow 0 - 3 Catholic United



Catholic United reached the League Cup semi final for the first time with a comfortable 0-3 victory away at Great Baddow.

Goals in each half from Simon Thomas & Aaron Baldwin secured the Hoops’ best ever outing in the competition against the Premier Division’s bottom side.

Despite better availability to last Saturday, Dan Trenkel stuck with the same lineup with the exception of Thomas coming in for the player-manager.

The away side started brightly & were rewarded after 20 minutes when Baldwin rounded off a splendid team move. Jamie Salmon played Patrick Kearney down the right before the full back’s inch perfect, first time delivery was headed in from six yards - the striker’s 11th goal for the club.

Soon after, Trenkel’s side doubled their advantage with the other Kearney, Thomas, turning provider. Collecting the ball off Baldwin, the midfielder’s low cross across goal was turned in by his namesake & in doing so, was Catholic’s 100th goal this season.

Thomas scored his second on the hour mark - Salmon & Baldwin took advantage of a quick free-kick down the middle that culminated in the striker converting from the edge of the box.

Catholic saw out the tie with minimal fuss & will now face Buckhurst Hill at home in the last four.

Next up for the Hoops is a trip to Milton Keynes for their third successive quarter final against Old Bradwell United in the Anagrams Record Trophy.
