FC United 1 Cheadle Town 1


CHAMPIONS-elect FC United had to settle for a 1-1 draw in their home Moore and Co Solicitors League second division derby with lowly Cheadle, which was watched by a crowd of 2,713, after being kept at bay by the visitors' stand-in keeper Ashley Stokes.

Stokes donned the green jersey when Troy Whittle was forced off injured early on and was beaten only by a Chris Simms equaliser after Aaron Riley had given Cheadle a shock lead.
