Gresford edge Cup tie

Flint bowed out of the NEWFA Cup in a game played in extremely windy conditions at Clappers Lane.

The hosts edged the tie with about 10 minutes to go, when Tom Freeman converted a slightly dubious penalty that had been awarded to the home team.
Up to that point, there wasn't too much to choose between the sides, although Richie Foulkes almost put the Silkmen ahead earlier in the second half, when he was one on one with the keeper, but the Gresford gloveman pulled off a great save to deny him.
So after exiting this competition, we now turn our attention to the League Cup final with Caernarfon on Saturday. Best wishes to Gresford for their semi final match.

Flint team : Ben Jones, Matty Holt, Joe Culshaw, Ieuan Hewitt, Mark Cadwallader, Stewart Carroll (Johnny Hill), James Hooper (Luke Tyson), Richie Foulkes, Andy Brown (Joe Palmer), Shaun Beck, Kyle Smyth. Unused Sub - Levi Mackin
