THE Cheshire League, managed by Tarporley Victoria boss Steve Lloyd, are through to the final of the North West Inter League Cup final.
Lloyd’s lads booked their place in the showpiece with a two-legged semi-final success over the Lancs & Cheshire League.
The Cheshire League produced a resolute and committed display to win the first leg away from home 1-0.
They ran rampant in the second leg, emerging as 6-1 winners on the night, thanks to four goals from Eagle Sports hitman Ged McAllister and two from Whaley Bridge’s Lee Morris, and 7-1 on aggregate.
The Cheshire League, whose starting line-up for the home clash included Tarporley duo Chris Jones and Peter Aidley, will face the Manchester League in the final.
Lloyd said: “We had a job to do and every single player delivered.
“It was a fabulous display.”
Malpas, under-strength through illness and injury, suffered a heavy 5-0 defeat at Cheshire League Division Two leaders Runcorn Town Reserves on Saturday.
Outstanding goalkeeper Conner Tinsley kept the score down although the Wrexham Road outfit did have chances to reduce the deficit, the best of which fell to Andy Morris.
Malpas manager Lea Edge said: “Runcorn are the best side we have played this season, their movement all over the pitch was good to watch.
“We struggled to get forward due to the fact all our wide players with pace did not play, so our options were restricted as an attacking force.”
Tarporley Victoria’s four-match unbeaten run came to an end as they went down 2-0 at home to Congleton Vale.
