TURKS Head literally used their heads as they bagged four headers during their 8-1 McCain Cup semi-final victory over third division rivals Commercial.

Tom Williamson fired Turks in front when he finished from close range on 20 minutes, and the advantage was doubled when Mikey Barker produced a first time finish.

Col Jenkinson’s charges were three goals to the good at the interval when Williamson produced a bullet header at the back post.

Two more headers from Jon Cairns and Williamson saw Turks race into a five-goal lead before Commercial skipper Stu Lincoln pulled one back with a fine volley from 20 yards.

But Turks were not done and Williamson made it a hat-trick of headers for the sixth before an own goal and a Dane Ramos effort wrapped things up for the victors.

Jenkinson said: “It was a good effort from the boys and we took our chances well.

“We are pleased to have made it into the final.”

Commercial player-boss Geoff Osguthorpe added: “It was very hard today because we were missing six first choice players.

“It was very frustrating to be in a semi-final and be in that position but they are a very good side and deserved to win it.”

In the other semi-final Isaac Sands was the main man with three goals for his itis itis side who defeated Victoria Reserves 8-2.

itis itis were ahead early doors when Sands, 20, found the back of the net before Paul O’Neil doubled the lead for Matty Hobson’s troops.

Victoria hit back through Rob Ward and Robin Coulson and were back on level terms with a quick-fire double.

Tom Clark restored the itis itis lead with a deflected effort before further strikes from Sands and O’Neil made it 5-2 at the break.

itis itis continued to dominate in the second half with Sands bagging another, while Mark Oldroyd and goalkeeper Tom Hicks with a penalty, finished things off.

Hobson said: “We are delighted to have won the game and we scored some good goals.

“I thought Isaac (Sands), Sam Barker and Mark (Oldroyd) were all excellent for us today.

“We can’t wait for the final.”
