1874 Northwich return to action tomorrow night.

They will visit Irlam in a Macron Cup second-round clash delayed from Saturday, when the tie was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

The eventual winners have been drawn away to Warrington side Rylands in the third round.

Meanwhile, 1874's Tony Aghayere has been named Reusch Goalkeeper of the Month for October in the North West Counties Football League Premier Division.

It was in the final game of the month, in particular, that Aghayere made the headlines.

His save in sudden-death penalties enabled 1874 to progress in the Cheshire Senior Cup at the expense of their higher-league neighbours Witton Albion.

In his nomination for the award, it reads: "He saved Witton's third and fifth penalties to help make it into a nervy, sudden-death situation.

"After 74 converted their seventh penalty, Tony stepped into the goal and pulled off a fantastic save to win the match and was subsequently mobbed by his teammates in the ensuing celebration!

"Tony later said that it was an amazing moment, not only to win a game but because it meant so much to everyone."

The nomination continues: "Tony is a young, calm keeper, big in stature and heart.

"He is a real favourite at the club and has earned the respect of many.

"He has developed a great understanding with his teammates and has played a big part in the decent season so far for the team."

Aghayere played in all of his side's six matches last month, keeping one clean sheet and conceding six goals across the other five matches.
