Chorley 1-3 Whitby Town - 29/09/2012

Saturday Sepember 29th, 3pm
FA Trophy 1st Qualifying Round

LAST week’s FA Cup nightmare itself in the FA Trophy as the Magpies fell to a second three-one defeat against a side struggling in the league and Tom Ince saw red again.

A double from Steve Snaith and a last minute striker by Shane Henry ensured the John Cunliffe first goal of the season was scant consolation as the Seasiders progress to the second qualifying round.

The Magpies were in truth as sixes and seven throughout and never looked close to hitting top form and had an early wakeup call when Snaith’s quick strike beat Jack Cudworth at the near post on six minutes.

The visitors had two chances to extend their lead before Chorley got going and Tom Ince picked up a caution on 10 minutes for which even the other 21 players on the pitch had no idea as they all headed toward the Whitby goal only to find the official pointing the other way and brandishing a yellow card!

Dale Whitham had a sighter from 20 yards then Cunliffe shot over after a one-two with Adam Roscoe as the hosts started to claw their way into the game.

Just as the half hour passed Ince was fouled and Ciaran Kilheeney caught the visiting defence out with a quick free-kick to release Cunliffe who rounded the keeper and netted from a tight angle.

Ince almost volleyed in from 25 yards, but his shot from a Kilheeney headed bounced just beyond the far post with the Town keeper Nick Liversedge well beaten, but shortly after he earned his wage with a fantastic point blank save to deny Kilheeney from three yards from an excellent centre from Simon Garner.

With second to the interval Chorley had a clear shout for a penalty turned down when Garner was flattened from behind.

Despite coming out strongly for the second half the only chance for the home side in the opening 20 minutes was an Andy Russell stab at goal which went narrowly wide.

Chris Denham and Steve Foster replaced Garner and Cunliffe, but failed to provide the much needed spark to the Chorley performance.

Foster shot over after the keeper fumbled, but credit to Liversedge for a quick recover and putting pressure on the transfer listed striker.

With a little over ten minutes to the final whistle the chances of a Tuesday night reply on the East coash diminished when Snaith bagged his second with the help of some keystone cops style defending.  Cudworth collided with Russell when going for a cross, the ball was then lobbed back into the area and as Snaith attempted a overhead kick to score from a cross the ball, which looked to be heading wide deflected off Ashley Parillon into the unguarded net.

With time running our Ince lost his cool and needlessly knocked an opponent over just yards from his own area giving the referee no option but to provide a second yellow and a second early bath in a week for the winger along with en extended stay on the side lines from next week!

Matt Jansen was thrown on, but Pele and Maradona would have struggled to lift this performance, then Henry ended any hopes of an equaliser beating Cudworth from distance in the final minute.
