Crewe Advance In Cheshire Senior Cup

Crewe Advance In Cheshire Senior Cup

Crewe Alexandra started off their defence of the Cheshire Senior Cup with a 2-0 victory at Runcorn Linnets with first-half goals from Lewis Reilly and Daniel Udoh at The Millbank Linnets Stadium last night.

Manager Alex Morris named Dave Richards in goal (also wearing the captain`s armband) with Travis Johnson and Luke Offord at full-back either side of George Ray and Josh Lundstram. In midfield, Ryan Wintle started centrally with Oli Finney with Regan Griffiths and Charlie Kirk playing wide whilst Lewis Reilly was joined up front by Daniel Udoh, who was returning to the club following his loan spell at Chester.

Crewe took the lead on 5 minutes with Udoh finding Reilly with a knock-down with Udoh adding a second 7 minutes before half-time after turning one of the Runcorn central defenders before firing left-footed from the edge of the area.

They join Hyde United, Stockport County and Altrincham already in the next round whilst Winsford United/Warrington Town, Alsager Town/Stalybridge Celtic, Sandbach United/Nantwich Town and Stockport Town/Cammell Laird in the quarter-final stage.
