Ashton Town 0(3)-0(4) WBAFC

Tattersall pulled off a world class save to put Whaley through to the semi-final of the CFL Premier Challenge Cup.

Sub-zero temperatures (travelling spectators literally freezing to death!) and a gale blowing directly down the slope with intermittent bursts of horizontal snow in blizzard like fashion all made it almost impossible to construct any meaningful sustained possession football though neither side lacked effort. With the wind you were chasing the ball; against the wind you were hemmed in - neither keeper able to clear half way against the wind.

So this will be a short report with almost the entire action taking place after the final whistle in the penalty shootout.

Unlike at Ilkeston where Whaley were unfortunate to end the game with few of its competent penalty takers and ultimately suffered the consequences Darryl contrived to have them all on the field by the end of full time. Gregory replacing the tiring Sam Leadbetter and the long term injured Gemmell coming on for Will Bailey late on.

And so to penalties: Bill Sutton stepped up to take the first and as usual slotted home to put the visitors one up. Tattersall, who had been more or less redundant throughout the game, then pulled off what turned out to be the winning save of the day; diving to his right he managed to get a strong hand on the ball and direct it up and over the bar. Subsequent to that players from both sides scored consecutive spot kicks meaning the visitors went through without having to take the 5th penaltyl. All four Whaley penalties were top notch Gilbride, Gregory and Gemmell adding to Sutton's first giving the impressive Ashton keeper no chance.

Rylands and Congleton) will contest the other semi (7/04/18) and the winner will meet Whaley in the final to be played at Trafford FC on Wednesday April 11th.

This was the long awaited ‘top of the table clash’ with the visitors really needing to take something from the game if Knutsford weren’t to go 9 points clear with 14 games played and 14 remaining.

You would have been mistaken if possibly you feared a dull low-key start to the game after the enthralling Derbyshire Cup game last Tuesday.
