KNUTSFORD bid to become the second team to beat Newton on their own pitch when they visit Wirral on Saturday.

Reds’ task is a tricky one in the Cheshire FA Amateur Cup’s last 16, the West Cheshire League high-fliers winning six of eight matches there in all competitions this term.

A hammering at home to West Kirby – conquerors of Paul Schofield’s men in the quarter finals of last season’s county knockout – last month in the Wirral Senior Cup is their record’s only black mark.

Knutsford cruised through to the third round after putting four goals past Bebington.

Kick off on Saturday is 1.30pm.

Six other Cheshire League sides have made it through to the third round stage, including Barnton.
