10:10am Tuesday 11th December 2012 in Sport
AFC Quarry missed out on the chance to reclaim top spot in Division One after a 1-1 draw against Flixton Juniors at the weekend. The scheduled match between league leaders Broadheath Central FC and third-placed Sale Town was postponed, meaning that a win for Quarry would have seen them move back to the summit. Elsewhere in the top flight, Wilmslow Sports propelled themselves upto fourth place in the table thanks to a 1-2 victory away at Sale Moor FC, Sale United beat Kartel Sports 4-1 with Chris Cloherty scoring all their goals and Atlantic FC prevailed 6-5 winners in an eleven-goal thriller against Swinton FC.
Meanwhile in Division Two, second-placed Styal FC suffered a shock 3-4 defeat at home to Unicorn Athletic. AFC Jolly Butcher stretched their unbeaten league run to six matches by overcoming Moorlands Sports 3-1 and West Didsbury & Chorlton came out 2-0 winners against Broadheath Central JFC to make it back-to-back league wins. Old Alts and Sale Town Reserves were both awarded three points after Grappenhall Sports and Baroni FC failed to field teams against them. APFC vs Northenden Victoria and Deans Youth vs Cheadle Hulme were both postponed.
In the Altrincham & District FA Senior Cup, Knutsford FC booked their place in the semi-finals by thrashing Egerton FC 11-3. They join Atlantic FC, Wilmslow Sports and Sale Amateurs in the last four.
