Nantwich 5 FC United 1

26/ 2/2008

FC United crashed out of the President's Cup as the Rebels' defence leaked five goals on a rain-swept night in Nantwich.

Karl Marginson rested first-choice centre-backs David Chadwick and Rob Nugent ahead of Wednesday's league clash with Clitheroe, and the home side took advantage with four goals from set pieces.

Dabbers striker Adam Beasley opened the scoring and although Jerome Wright levelled, Beasley struck again before the break.

Paul Taylor, Phil Parkinson and Nick Farquarason all headed home in the second half, report www.fc-utd.com.
