It was a semi-final fixture lacking in very little, with nine goals scored, two red cards and a penalty.

Copthorne, who’ve surged up to second in the league after a fine recent run of results, led 2-0 at the break.

Cameron netted on 11 minutes and seven minutes before the interval.

It was Cameron at it again, completing his hat-trick three minutes after the restart to further extend Copthorne’s lead.

Jake Sayers got one back for Seniors but Weddell restored his side’s three-goal advantage less than a minute later. Jon Hendrick struck on the hour then James Butt pulled it back to 4-3 15 minutes from time.

But an Angmering man saw red and Cameron added a fifth on 82 minutes.

Copthorne were reduced to ten men in the closing stages, yet Cameron completed the scoring four minutes from time.
