Crewe Regional Sunday Football League Round Up: Des Evans
In The Crewe Regional Sunday League Premier Division on Thursday evening, George & Dragon travelled to Wistaston to fulfil one of their backlog of fixtures against Raven Salvador, and ended up as convincing 0-8 winners. Raven Salvador deserve great credit for having a full squad of 16 players, mainly young, and at half time were still in the game at 0-2. However, in the second half, the greater experience of the visitors showed and they added a further six goals. Joe Duckworth has been in splendid goal scoring form this season, and he added a further 3, with Perry Bircumshaw scoring twice. Goals from Richie McAleese, Robbie Hatton and Andy Houston completed the tally.
There were just three fixtures on Easter Sunday. George & Dragon moved to the top of the table with a 5-2 victory over Betley. Robbie Hatton and Joe Duckworth both scored twice, and there was also an own goal. Lee Smith and Zak Saadouni netted for Betley.
Broadhurst FC completed their League fixtures with a visit to Bunbury, and just edged a close game to win 2-3. They took the lead, but NHB came back to go 2-1 up, before the visitors levelled before half time, and scored the only goal of the second half to win. Nick Ball and Peter Aidley scored for NHB, with Josh Wrench, Jordan Cobley and Dean Jones netting for the visitors.
In Division One, another close encounter, this time between Sandbach Town and Nantwich Pirates saw the visitors win 0-1, thanks to a Sam Cadwallader free kick late in the first half. The win moves the Pirates into fifth place in the League table.
