Report: Burscough 2-2 REMYCA (REMY win 4-3 on pens)

1 week ago By David Brindle

Last minute equaliser not enough for Burscough as REMY put themselves in the semi finals

Paul McNally's Litherland REMYCA are through to the Liverpool County FA Senior Cup semi final for the third year on the run after beating Burscough on penalties.

Burscough sent the game to penalties in the final minute when a corner was headed home by their centre half.

The corner came from REMYCA trying to move the ball instead of slowing it down and managing the game more effectively. Burscough won back possession and worked a corner.

REMYCA led after 14 minutes through Connor Murphy, and following a Burscough equaliser a rare Chris Tyson strike from outside the area made it 2-1.

The entire REMYCA side huddled around Tyson to celebrate his strike following another efficient performance from the central midfielder.

Ben Morrow made vital stops from 12 yards and Rory Middleton sent the winning penalty past the Burscough keeper to put REMY in the final four.

Paul McNally was disappointed at not being able to utilise either of his newly promoted youngsters, but with the game as tight as it was late on, it wasn't the night to introduce them.

Lennon Whewell was as lively as ever and caused issues, most notably when Tyson tried to put him in behind and minutes later worked the Burscough keeper but to no avail.

Colin Quirk forced Burscough into man marking him, which both he and McNally used to create more space for their side. A magic bit of foot worm in the second half left an opposing defender on his backside but his shot flew over the bar.

Aside from scoring the winning penalty, Middleton also rattled the woodwork from long range after just a quarter of an hour which would have been a great goal.
