Hindsford 4 Wythenshawe Ams 1
WYTHENSHAWE Amateurs will be getting fed up of Hindsford.
Ammies returned to Squires Lane in the Gilgryst Cup quarter finals looking to avenge two recent defeats at the hands of the Tonics but the Manchester League Premier Division leaders performed well on the heavy pitch despiite numerous changes.
Chilton returned to skipper the side alongside Goldrick at centre back and striker Chris Hopwood had to play out of position at left back due to Waldeis being injured.
Luke Sylvester was serving a one-match suspension and long-term injury meant Jake Haslam was still missing.
Hindsford played quite well in the first half despite not having the cutting edge in front of goal and it was after the break that the nets bulged.
The forward partnership of Tom Valentine and Joe Yarwood played closer together in the second half and within 20 minutes Hindsford were 3-0 up courtesy of Valentine, two, and man-of-the-match Rico Stewart, who broke from midfield to score another.
Wythenshawe got one back from a corner but substitute Grimshaw, a centre back by trade, soon made sure of the result with his first goal for the club, volleying in after good work from Ryan Briody on the right.
Tonics can now now look to kick on in three cup competitions and in the chase for the league title, although they have no fixture this weekend.
