Chelmsford, from the Adnams East League, caused the major upset in yesterday's fifth-round Association Cup ties when they came from behind to beat the National Premier League side, Canterbury, 2-1.

After Mark Hollingworth had given Canterbury the lead in the eighth minute they lost their way, allowing Chelmsford to draw level a minute before the interval through Alan Thorogood, with Rob Hawkins getting the winner 14 minutes into the second half from only one of two penalty corners they were awarded.

Canterbury, on the other hand, were unable to beat Keith Wiggins, Chelmsford's cup specialist goalkeeper, at 15 corner attempts.

Slough's visit to Amiens ended in disappointment when they lost 5-4 to Campo Madrid in the play-off for the bronze medal at the women's European Indoor Club Championship. Slough had earlier lost 6-4 in the semi-finals to Russelsheim, who went on to retain their title in an all-German final by beating Berliner 7-6. Edinburgh won the B Division final in Brescia, Italy, 6-3 against Groningen from the Netherlands.
