CUDDINGTON claimed a share of the spoils as a reward for a heroic comeback against Vulcan on Saturday.

With captain Nathan Harwood standing in as goalkeeper in the absence of Tom Wilson, they trailed 3-0.

Adam Griffiths, twice, and Matthew Hart were both on target for the Cheshire League Two newcomers at Norley Road.

However interval substitute Ste Hughes converted a penalty to spark the home team’s recovery.

Greg Lumsden then forced the visitors’ custodian into an error to make it 3-2 before the away side missed a spot kick of their own.

Sean Willott’s perfectly-weighted pass then sent Hughes clear, and his cute lobbed finish restored parity.

Cuddy almost nicked maximum points when they struck the woodwork late on.

Middlewich Town demonstrated their versatility to subdue a spirited Golborne Sports in Cheshire League One.

The Witches took the lead when Sam Whitehead blasted into the roof of the net from inside the penalty area.

However Golborne rallied, and Scott Walker turned the ball past goalkeeper Charles Masters from close-range.

The visitors assumed control after the interval, and edged in front when George Hopkins fired into the corner.

Their hosts responded again though, and substitute Josh Edwards made it 2-2.

Wakefield secured maximum points for Town, claiming a seventh goal of the campaign when his cross to the back post nestled into the top corner.

Rudheath Social, returning to action after five weeks without a fixture, went down 3-0 at Premier Division leaders Whaley Bridge.

Lostock Gralam’s home date with FC St Helens in League One was postponed on Friday.

Middlewich’s reserves completed a perfect month when they put six goals without reply past Linotype.

Daniel Martin and Harry Short both claimed doubles, while strikes from Matthew Cann and Kyle Maddock completed a third successive win in all competitions.

They sit fourth in the table.
