The one remaining second round game in the Crewe FA Sunday Cup was completed, and it was won by Betley who beat George & Dragon on penalty kicks, after the teams finished at 2-2 at ninety minutes. The visitors lead 0-1 at half time with a Joe Duckworth goal. Danny Lavalette equalised , before a second Duckworth goal appeared to be enough to give the visitors a win. However, Jamie Baker equalised for Betley deep into injury time to send the tie to penalties. Betley goalkeeper Josh Williams turned out to be the hero by saving two penalties to give victory to the home side.
