Cheshire Senior Cup

    Chester 3-3 Hyde United AET (Hyde win 5-4 on pens)

    The Blues crashed out of the Cheshire Senior Cup tonight in the First Round, as a very youthful Chester side were beaten by Hyde.

    Jon McCarthy’s men took a two goal lead thanks to a clever lob from Matty Waters and a goal for James Jones either side of half time; before strikes from Peter Boyle and Jamal Branker took the tie to extra time.

    Nathan Brown’s superb solo goal put Chester back in front, before a stunning volley from Oliver Ford took the game to penalties – which the visitors edged 5-4.

    Chester: Roberts, Downes, Evans, Hunt (c), Joyce, J Jones, Edwards, Waters, Ap-Gareth, Marsh, Brown.
    Subs: Hodges, Rowbottom, E Jones, Crayston, Thomson.
    Goals: Waters 33, J Jones 58, Brown 92.
    Attendance: 338.
