Nantwich Town 3 1874 Northwich 1

NANTWICH progressed to the semi finals of the Cheshire Senior Cup on Tuesday night with victory over 1874 Northwich.

They will now face fellow Evo-Stik Premier Division side Warrington Town at Weaver Stadium in the last four, with the tie scheduled to take place on week beginning March 6.

After a frustrating first half where chances were at a premium, The Dabbers finally took the lead when Sean Cooke’s corner was headed home by Ben Harrison.

However, the visitors levelled before half-time when Tyler Edwards rifled a shot into the bottom corner from 25 yards.

Phil Parkinson’s side stepped up the tempo after the break and Ryan Brooke doubled their lead six minutes after the restart with a well-taken finish.

Harrison added another from a Cooke set-piece to seal the victory just before the hour mark.
