2pm
Lancashire & Cheshire Amateur League, Rhodes Cup First Round
Chorltonians 1 AFC Stockport 1, 7-6 on penalties (att 2)
Free admission, no progs


On call for work this weekend so needed to stay local. I'd expected to be ticking off a 3G venue, but the grass pitches at the Hough End Centre were playable so took in a league cup tie between teams separated by four divisions.

Although Chorltonians were the better side throughout you wouldn't have guessed there was such a gulf between the teams. AFC Stockport thoroughly deserved to take it to penalties after the sides were level in 90 minutes. Chorltonians went ahead just before the hour, but Stockport were resolute and deserved their equaliser.

No extra time and the penalty shoot out went into sudden death before the home side progressed to the second round of the Lancashire and Cheshire Amateur League's main cup competition. The weather was horrendous, and both teams deserve credit for providing a decent game in driving rain and an icy cold wind.

The Hough End Centre is the Greater Manchester Police sports and social club. GMP played here in the Manchester League, but the pitch I saw them play on in 1998 is now used as paddocks for police horses. In fact some of the old pitch railings have been repositioned to divide that area into three.

There's still space for two unrailed and unroped grass pitches, both of which were in use today. Chorltonians first team played on the pitch furthest from the changing rooms and social club, but it is the more enclosed of the two.
