Cup day to forget for Woodhouse

“At least it wasn’t the league,” was manager Simon Randles reaction as his side were dumped out of the cup.

“Everyone has to a get a hammering once a season, and this was ours,” he said.

But he reflected on an otherwise successful season in which his side won the Division Two championship.

“Our aim was promotion and we achieved it. If we can keep the same side together next season, I see no reason why we can’t be challenging for another promotion,” he said.

For Woodhouse’s last game, they were shattered in the first half by the visitors.

In a mad 10 minutes they conceded five goals and were soon losing 8 - 0 before Joe Whitham pulled one back, latching on to a through ball and rounding the keeper to score and it was 9 - 1 at half-time.

Woodhouse at least drew the second half. Their second also came from Whitham in a carbon copy of his first and the third was almost another repeat.

This time the keeper was able to parry it, but it rebounded to Jordan Walker, who slotted it home.
