Crewe Regional Sunday Football League Round Up: Des Evans
In The Crewe Regional Sunday League the improved weather meant that all games except one were fulfilled. JS Bailey could not play due to Covid issues.
In the Premier Division, Broadhurst FC led 2-0 against Willaston White Star, but eventually lost 2-3. Jordan Cobley and Kallum McDonough netted for the home side, with the Willaston goals coming from Dan Lomas, David Polanski and Lukasz Synowicz.
The Lions increased their lead at the top of the Division with a 1-3 win at NHB. Danny Roberts netted a hat trick for the visitors, with the NHB effort being an own goal.
In Division One, Winsford Over and Sandbach Town netted eight goals between them, with Winsford Over winning 5-3. Tom Stanton continued his excellent scoring form by scoring 3, with Will Igoe netting twice. Jack Townsend scored twice and Lewis Barker once for the visitors.
Cooper Buckley beat a well organised C & N Utd. 1-3, but the match was goalless at half time. Ashley Edwards netted twice for Cooper Buckley, with Jason McMullen also on target. Tom Heaton scored for the home side.
White Horse made it two wins out of two when a late flurry of goals gave them a 5-1 win over Princes Feathers. The game was level at 1-1 at half time. Tom Royle (2), George Botham (2) and Shaun Simcock netted for The Horse, with Ethan Stockall netting for the Winsford team.
League leaders Audlem took only four minutes to take the lead against Leighton FC, and eventually ran out 7-0 winners with goals from Nick Gregory (2), Seb Burrow, Ben Walker and Will Cork. Veterans Andrew Betteley and Paul Bowker also netted.
Two of the three remaining fixtures in the Crewe FA Sunday Cup were played. Cheshire Cheese have been in decent form of late, and they just shaded a close game against Winnington SC, with a 2-1 scoreline. Ben Reddock netted both the Cheshire Cheese goals, with James Felton scoring for the visitors, who also missed a penalty kick.
Faddiley had just eleven players for their game against Raven Salvador, but they staged a remarkable comeback to win 4-3, after being 1-3 down at one stage. They scored just before and just after the interval to level things up, before Callum Hassall got the winner. For Faddiley, Rich Ryan scored after a 45-yard run, with Derice Richards also netting, plus an own goal. For Raven Salvador, Owen Porter scored twice, with Robsan Osman getting the other goal.
Betley expected to be featuring in the one remaining Crewe FA Sunday Cup Game, but their Quarter Final tie in the Staffs FA TB Williamson Cup took precedence, so they found themselves travelling to Blurton in The Potteries, where their opponents were the curiously named Barber Life Blue. Betley made a dream start with a goal after only 15 seconds and effectively had the game won by half time, when they led 1-3. They added one further goal in the second half to record an excellent 1-4 victory. Danny Lavalette scored twice, with Chris Towers and Keiron Duckers also scoring.
