Trafford 0 Nantwich Town 4

TRAFFORD were dumped out of the Evo Stik League Doodson Cup on Tuesday night as Nantwich completed a league and cup double in the space of four days.

A last minute goal had given the visitors the three points on Saturday but they could have taken an early lead on this occasion when Arron Burns volleyed wide after three minutes, Steve Foster saw his goalbound effort cleared off the line and Earl Davis headed a left wing corner against the upright.

In the 24th minute the deadlock was broken when Mark Jones low cross from the right was unfortunately turned past his own keeper by Nia Bayunu.

Arron Burns almost made it two when he burst down the middle in the 31st minute but his shot was saved at full length by Hayden Buckley-Smith.

Trafford’s first attempt on goal arrived in the 37th minute when debutant Simon Hackney fired an audacious volley from the left wing just past the far post.

Rory Fallon then saw his low drive held by Jack Cudworth at the second attempt but Nantwich finished the first half on top with Oliver Devanny chipping a shot just wide from a great position.

Within 15 seconds of the restart Trafford right back Rees Walsh was caught in possession and Arron Burns lashed a shot against the upright from 20 yards and play immediately switched to the other end where Andy Smart cracked a thunderbolt that was brilliantly tipped over by Cudworth.

In the 48th minute Steve Foster made it 2-0 when he slipped the ball past the advancing Kieran O’Hara a half time substitute for Smith-Buckley, and the young Trafford keeper was called into action shortly afterwards with a magnificent double save to thwart Foster and Osebi Abadaki.

O’Hara performed heroics once more in the 57th minute to parry a header by Burns but he was unfortunate in the 80th minute when another instinctive block ended with Foster sliding in the rebound.

And in the 90th minute Town substitute Ben Deegan completed the scoring when he won the race to a long ball down the left and cleverly lifted the ball over the advancing O’Hara.
