Town returned to action after their four-week lockdown break and eased to a 5-1 win over neighbours Winsford United.

The friendly clash was switched to The Optimum Pay Stadium in Nantwich due to a waterlogged pitch at Winsford.

Four goals for Nantwich Town in the first-half secured the victory with a brace from Connor Heath, a Dave Webb penalty and a strike by former Reds winger Joe Mwasile.

The fifth goal for the Dabbers, and the only goal of the second-half, was scored by 16-year-old Oliver Pope which was his first senior goal.

The second-half also featured a penalty save from Dabbers keeper James Hawkins.

Reds, who had returned to training last Thursday, were training again on Saturday and manager Danny Grainger (pictured) is looking forward to a return to serious action against the Dabbers.

“We have a couple of injury issues but we are all looking forward to getting out there again and playing. We all know that a win tomorrow night gives us another game next Tuesday and that’s what we want with the League season paused.

“Win or lose at Nantwich we have arranged a game for Saturday. We will be playing Penrith at Frenchfields with a 12 noon kick-off,” said Grainger.

Scott Allison is back in light training, with no contact stuff, while Reuben Jerome has been feeling his way back from a knee injury in the two training sessions.

Tomorrow night’s first round FA Trophy tie kicks-off at 7-45pm and technology permitting will be the subject of commentary on BBC Radio Cumbria.
