Banbury knocked the world’s oldest hockey club and National League stalwarts Teddington out the England Hockey Cup in Sunday’s second round tie.

They will now face National League indoor champions Canterbury in the final 16 later this month after their 4-1 win.

Simon Boardman combined with Richard Foreman to break the deadlock and Steve Campbell intercepted brilliantly and rounded the final defender before smashing the ball home from the top of the D.

Teddington threatened after the restart but good work from Louis Harris and Harry Camp thwarted the visitors and Banbury looked a threat on the break. Josh Nunnely missed a penalty-flick before Teddington reduced the arrears.

But in the closing stages Harry Loxton restored Banbury’s two-goal advantage before combining with Campbell to bag his second goal.
