Knutsford 3rd 7 Alderley Edge 6th 0

AFTER Ady Holah shattered the back board with a route-one short corner on 15 minutes the result was never in doubt.

Knutsford’s freshness, energy and ability was a bit too much for Alderley’s mix of veterans and under 16s.

Steve Hope missed a couple of sitters before netting, Norman Jamieson bagged a brace, man-of-the-match James Routs excelled with his first treble for 20 years.
