Denton Town 1
Eagle Sports 3
EAGLE Sports started the defence of the JB Parker Challenge Cup crown they won last season in convincing fashion.
Ged McAllister’s brace, plus a goal for substitute Mike Hickman, was enough to set up a quarter finals date with Whaley Bridge.
The Thornton Road side, seeking a third trophy success in as many years, took the lead when McAllister finished confidently after being sent clear by debutant Liam Walker.
McAllister added his second 15 minutes later, slotting home Stuart Bruce’s pass Denton halved their arrears, but Hickman settled the tie when he burst through two tackles before finishing from a tight angle.
Eagle: McDermott, Robinson, Cross, Chinn, Coleman, Bruce, Waldron, Roberts, Boardman, McAllister, Walker. Subs: Burthem, Hickman, Bishop.
EAGLE reserves’ slow start to the season continued as they lost 2-0 at Middlewich Town on Saturday, swapping places with their conquerors in the table.
They return to action in the Reserve Division Challenge Cup on Saturday week.
