Millers exit Manchester Cup

TWO second-half goals sent New Mills AFC crashing out of the Manchester Premier Cup at the hands of Irlam on Tuesday night.

Ross Needham had given the Millers the lead in their quarter-final tie, but goals from Liam Duffy and Steven Mills after the interval secured the hosts passage into the last four.

New Mills are next in Evo-Stik First Division South action on Saturday when they make the trip to The Lyme Valley Stadium in Staffordshire to face old North West Counties League rivals Newcastle Town (kick-off 3pm).
