Gilcryst Cup semi-final

Dukinfield Town 0-0 Springhead (Duki win 5-4 on penalties)

Following his heroics in the Cheshire Cup, goalkeeper Allen Mills was a penalty hero yet again, making a save which booked Duki’s place in the semi-final of the Gilcryst Cup.

After a goalless stalemate at the end of 90 minutes, the game would be decided on a penalty shootout. After both sides missed twice in the first five spot kicks it went to sudden death where both sides again missed one each before Mills took the plaudits.

Duki now face Vauxhall Motors in the Cheshire Cup semi-final final at Runcorn Linnets and then travel to second placed Whythenshawe Amatuers in the semi-final final of the Gilcryst cup in the same week in mid March.

Town return to league action this weekend with a trip to Bolton County and the reserves face Hindsford.
