Mid-Cheshire Senior Cup

In the revamped format Witton Albion are at home to Barnton.<br><br>Witton Albion Reserves have been invited to participate and have been drawn ‘away’ to Runcorn Linnets on a date before 31 October.<br><br>GE<br>

‘Re-Vamped’ to include a Final this year?? :-/

Does revamped mean more games? If so we should do a Northwich!<br><br> Or does revamped mean Conman Victoria decide who they play and when?

The full draw is:<br><br>First Round:<br><br>Congleton Town v Lostock Gralam<br>Winsford United v Middlewich Town<br>Witton Albion v Barnton (on 31.10.06)<br>Runcorn Linnets v Witton Albion Reserves<br><br>Semi Finals<br>C v B<br>A v D<br><br>Final (this season).<br><br><br>GE<br><br>

Does this meen Conman Victoria have already conceded ;D as they did with the final of the last comp.

They have been banned for this season [smiley=ranting.gif]

Shame that we miss out on the major derby match. The truth is that Vics probably wont even care that they are not involved this year.

I presume not even the MCFA would consider letting Vics host the final ???

Game is this Thursday at wincham park.<br>Runcorn will be the home team.<br>Will be nice to see a few away fans :smiley:

Does any one know the score from last nights game?<br>Also who played?

Runcorn 10 WITTON 2 [smiley=ranting.gif]

Match report from the Runcorn website<br><br>Runcorn Linnets 10 Witton Albion Res 2<br><br>Now listen carefully, I shall say this only once. The away directors were really the home diectors, the home directors are actually there at the invitation of the away directors. So really it was a home match for the away team and a…nah! Even I’m confused now trying to make sense of it all. Thursday night isn’t a football night but due to the ‘Caning in Croatia’ the previous evening, Runcorn’s first venture into the Mid Cheshire Senior Cup found itself perched closer to a Saturday game than manager Steve Carragher may have wished. By 9:45pm, most of the assembled masses (sic) went home happy having seen four goal Thomas Lamb lead Runcorn Linnets to a victory that may well be a record for most of our lifetimes.<br><br>Runcorn’s team was surprisingly strong. Manager, Steve Carragher, made only 3 changes from the defeat at Eccleshall. Perhaps a master stroke as the team rediscovered it’s shooting boots. Paul Davies returned at left back, local lad Neil Murray played his first game of the year in central defence and John Morgan took the left wing role. Michael Young was unavailable having undergone dental surgery that afternoon, new ‘old’ signing Colin Quirk had a hamstring tweak and wasn’t risked.<br><br>If you watched the first twenty minutes you would have struggled to believe the outcome. Witton’s young lads zipping the ball around and looking very good. Given the nature of the game this is where the report deviates from it’s usual format…<br><br>22 Mins, Corn 0 Witton 1 : George Caulfield allows the ball to slip under him allowing Chris Gahgan to score <br>25 Mins, Corn 1 Witton 1: Thompson shot hits post, McCoy crosses and LAMB scores<br>31 Mins, Corn 2 Witton 1: Andy McCoy cross Dave THOMPSON tap in<br>35 Mins Corn 3 Witton 1: Ricky NEWELL header from a Andy McCoy corner<br>40 Mins Corn 4 Witton 1: McIntyre crosss, LAMB header<br>42 Mins Corn 5 Witton 1: Thompson cross, LAMB drills in hat-trick<br>45 Mins Corn 6 Witton 1: SCOTT breaks from own half and chips the keeper<br><br>Half Time: Runcorn Linnets 6 Witton Albion Res 1<br><br>During the half time break, my appeals to the Runcorn board of directors for a calculator fell on deaf ears. The shoes and socks were off ready for adding up in the second half. Steve Carragher brought James Edwards on at the break replacing Paul Scott in the middle of the park. And so it continues…<br><br>48 Mins Corn 7 Witton 1: Thompson unselfishly squares for MORGAN to drill home<br>55 Mins Thompson and McIntyre replaced by James Swales and Dave Tierney<br>58 Mins Corn 7 Witton 2: Good run by Jones, turned in by HENDRICKS-HAMILTON !!!<br>67 Mins Witton blast penalty over the bar<br>77 Mins Corn 8 Witton 2: Andy McCoy cross, Jay EDWARDS header<br>80 Mins Corn 9 Witon 2: Andy McCoy cross (again) keeper fluffs it James SWALES heads in<br>81 Mins Runcorn 82 chants "We want ten, we want ten"<br>82 Mins Corn 10 Witton 2: GOAL OF THE GAME…cross from the Runcorn left…LAMB’s attempted chest trap fails but his volley of the dropping ball almost rips up the goal posts<br>88 Mins Runcorn website reporter puts socks and shoes back on :-)<br><br>So, ten goals and a huge confidence boost. MOM is easy, Lamby’s four goals win it hands down though Andy McCoy must get a mention too for 5 assists. <br>
