U18: Nantwich Town 4 Wythenshawe Amateurs 5

The Young Dabbers faced Wythenshawe Amateurs in the FA Youth Cup (First Round Qualifying) at the Swansway Stadium on Monday 12th September 2022.

Prior to kick-off Dabbers captain Riley Capewell placed a wreath in the centre circle in tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II following her death aged 96. The wreath contained 70 poppies to represent Her Majesty’s 70 years of service. The wreath laying was followed by a one-minute silence and players wore black armbands.

A pulsating Youth Cup fixture finished with the visitors progressing into the next round. It was a great game, and The Dabbers showed some great fight and desire at times but unfortunately, they didn’t have enough to get over the line.
