ST HELENS Town continued in cup action, this time in the Cheshire League cup. West Didsbury and Chorlton were the visitors to Ruskin in chilly conditions.

Two closely matched teams were separated just before half time after Tom White had scored a powerful header from Dale Whitehead's corner to put Town 1-0.

Shortly after half time Ryan Cook's well taken penalty put Town 2-0 and seemingly in control.

But West Didsbury's number 10 Michael Olatunji had other ideas. He smartly dispatched a back heeled first before bagging a second to tie the game up at 2-2.

And that's how it would end despite the efforts of MOM Pacey Garret who put in a midfield performance that belied his years.

So it was on to penalties which were taken at the Ruskin Drive end where the vociferous Town crowd congregated.

The West goalkeeper was sent off during penalties for kicking the ball away in a dramatic finale but he would still have the last laugh as it was his penalty save from Andy Cook that would prove the difference as Town went out 4-5 after penalties.
