Bemerton Heath had an easy passage through to the quarter-finals after second round opponents Hartley Wintney cried off.

The Combined Counties club rang Harlequins earlier in the day to say they couldn't muster a side.

"They did the same thing to us a couple of years ago," recalled Bemerton co-boss Steve Slade. "Prior to that we'd beaten them 6-0 on one occasion and they haven't wanted to come here since!

"It's annoying because we had sponsors, programmes and food prepared and, also, I wanted to give a few of our young lads a run-out.

"I'm not too impressed. Hartley Wintney shouldn't enter these competitions if they can't raise a team."

Christchurch lost 3-2 at Moneyfields, but Priory boss Andy Leader saluted his side's fighting spirit.

"It was a moral victory for us. Considering we've got so many players out, it was a decent performance," said Leader. "I can't fault the lads' commitment. We've got a huge league game at Downton on Saturday and we need to get back to winning ways."

Having gone ahead through Dave Roberts, Priory conceded to Steve Black and Pabs N'Doye before Reza Sotoudeh forced extra time.

Defender Kevin Murphy settled the tie with a brilliant left-foot shot into the top corner.

Money have welcomed back winger Ben Johnson from Bognor Regis.
