Scorers - O'Brien (26), Dolan (60), Wright (70), Hibbert (87).

Attendance: 117.

WBO super welterweight champion Jimmy Kelly took time out of training to watch his local Ammies beat Dukinfield Town in what was a close encounter in the first half, but if this was a boxing match could have been stopped in the second.
The Ammies kicked off towards the Hill End of the Dream Arena on the front foot with three golden opportunities within the first 15 minutes, Will Ahern winning the ball passed to Pat O'Brien at the far post but it was blocked by Dukinfield keeper, Allen Mills. Minutes later Carl Brady with a magical flick and turn volleyed over the bar. Third effort O'Brien with the keeper to beat, not as easy as it looks, shot wide.
O'Brien put that behind him in the 26th minute with a superb goal, he collected the ball on the right and with the sweetest left foot hammered it in at the far post. 1-0.
O'Brien could have doubled his tally two minutes later, Joel Aikenhead won the ball in midfield found O'Brien's head but his header just over.
Wythenshawe were putting cross after cross in but the end product just escaping them, Aikenhead hitting the bar then seeing his shot saved by Mills. Mills then denied a David Wright header following a great cross from Alan Dolan.
The Ammies went in at half time 1-0 but the crowd felt a second goal was needed.
Wythenshawe went about the second half attacking from the off, Wright with a free kick from his favourite position denied again by Mills.
Dukinfield tried to put the game to the Ammies with Daniel Lockwood rattling the bar. Luke Worth, who had a great game as always, marshalled the troops putting paid to Dukinfields foray's.
On the hour mark, Wythenshawe got the goal the crowd were baying for when Dolan struck a free kick from 30 yards into the far corner. 2-0.
Ten minutes later the game was put to bed when Rico Colulo won the ball put in a cross from the right to the far post which was met by Wright's head. 3-0.
Dukinfield were on the ropes, but Wythenshawe still pounded away, A great piece of footwork from Colulo outside the box didn't have the result it deserved when his shot went wide. Luke Hibbert had an effort blocked by Mills. With three minutes remaining Hibbert was blocked by Mills again but this time slotted the rebound past him. 4-0.
Final score 4-0 to the Ammies.

The club wish Jimmy all the best in his title defence in Australia in April, thank you for taking time out and to everybody who took time to watch us - Great support.
