Robbie Hatton scored twice in three minutes as Sandbach ran out 4-1 winners over Winsford United at Hind Heath Road.

The Cheshire side came into the match in fine form after their 6-1 demolition of Skelmersdale United at the JMO Sports Park, and so Andy Hockenhull named a largely unchanged starting eleven for the evening kick-off.

A beautiful Saturday afternoon marked the perfect occasion for football, with sunshine glistening off the players shirts as they walked out for the second round of the St Luke's Cup in Northern Cheshire.

Andy Hockenhull had a lightened squad entering the match, with Robbie Hatton missing out again due to injury. Steve Jones, scorer in the 4-1 loss to Skelmersdale, was also absent along with tricky winger Kieran Garner-Knapper. Nevertheless, the plethora of defensive options allowed Hockenhull to deploy three central defenders at the start of the game, hoping to record their first Cup win at the second attempt.

Club legend Andy Kimber

Sandbach United ran out 5-2 winners over Nantwich Town in the Andy Kimber Memorial Fundraiser match.

It was a cold Wednesday night in Cheshire, and the volunteers at Sandbach United had been working tirelessly to get enough snow off the pitch for it to be deemed playable. But as the fog came rolling in, and the temperature somehow dropped even lower, the ears and hearts of Sandbach fans were warmed by the sound of the first whistle.

A flat first half from Sandbach United was enough to see Maine Road run out 4-2 winners at Brantingham Road.

Sandbach manager Andy Hockenhull made a few changes to the match day squad from before the lockdown, with stalwart defensive midfielder Callum Evans dropping to the bench and Sean Moscrop moving into the No 6 role. Bobbie McDonnell was also absent through illness, so Robbie Hatton took his place. A minute silence for the passing of Sandbach legend Andy Kimber was impeccably observed before the match got underway.
