ELY City's hopes of league cup success were dashed after they suffered an 8-0 drubbing at the hands of Histon Reserves on Wednesday night.

The Stutes led by three goals at half-time and scored five goals in a frantic last half-hour. Simon Unwin and Michael Frew each netted a brace all scored two, with Sam Long , Daniel Sparkes, Andrew Tidswell, and Craig Hammond all netted.
