NICK Seabourne struck a hat-trick as Droitwich Spa thrashed Evesham United’s Under 21s 7-0 in the quarter-final of the Worcestershire Junior Cup.

Seabourne’s opener midway through the first-half separated the two sides at the break before Spa sparked into life.

Brad Burgess and Haydn Morris both bagged braces while Seabourne added two more to complete his treble at Walshes Meadow.

Spa bossed the game from start to finish, but their chances were restricted in the opening period by the visitors.

There were some good passes on show but the Saltmen struggled to carve out opportunities against a resolute back four and midfield.

The deadlock was broken on 21 minutes when Max Crisp’s through ball was pounced on by Seabourne who rounded keeper Josh Rogers and stroked the ball home into an empty net.

Evesham created little and were careless in possession, but Ewan Dunbar and Sam Lucas in particular showed moments of brilliance without troubling Matt Oliver. After a pretty non-descript first half, Droitwich came flying out of the blocks in the second period and were aggrieved not to be awarded a penalty.

Seabourne beat Matt Brookes for pace and was hacked down in the area on 48 minutes, but neither match official nor linesman deemed the challenge worthy of a spot-kick.

However Spa got their second nine minutes later as a neat passage of play down the right culminated in Andrew Crowther’s low cross being met by Morris at the far post to extend the hosts’ advantage.

The young Robins’ heads went down and Spa took full advantage as they netted four more goals over the next 20 minutes.

Burgess first slammed home Morris’s cross before Seabourne muscled his way in between Brookes and keeper Rogers to net Spa’s fourth.

Seabourne was involved again thanks to some great determination and a pin-point cross which teed up Burgess for his brace.

Seabourne then notched his third six minutes from time courtesy of Morris’s assist.

And with almost the last kick of the game Morris also grabbed a double and Droitwich’s seventh of the day as Josh Szikora’s long throw was nudged in to his path by Seabourne for a rare headed goal.

It wrapped up an emphatic victory for Spa who booked their place in the semi-final along with Welland, Fairfield Villa and Feckenham.
