KNUTSFORD A avenged last week’s league defeat against Sale Amateurs by knocking their rivals out of the Altrincham and District FA Senior Cup on Saturday.

Reds, five-times winners, edged through 4-3 after leading by three goals at the interval.

Dean Hou, twice, Mark Evans and Gareth Williams were on target for the victors at Crossfield Bridge, their reward a final date with Wilmslow Sports – single goal victors against Atlantic at Manchester Road – later this term.
