An exciting Integro League Cup Tie came to a disappointing end with Hyde edging through 5-4 on penalties at Ewen Fields on Tuesday night.

 The artificial surface brought the best out of the ball-players on show with Trafford’s Jason St Juste and Jack Dorney repeatedly catching the eye.

But it was the hosts who created the first chance when Peter Boyle shot straight at Grant Shenton after cutting in from the left.

Hyde goalkeeper James Hodges then saved from Aaron Burns following a great dribble and cross by St Juste before Burns himself set off on a mazy run that ended with a shot straight at the home keeper.

The best chance of the game came in the 18th minute when Ally Brown flighted a magnificent cross to the back post but Andy Keogh headed wastefully wide at the back post.

Jack Dorney wasted a free kick from a good position as half time approached but the half ended with both defences generally on top.


Hyde started the second period on the front foot with Lewis Haydock just failing to connect with a wicked low cross by Karl Jones before Hodges was very fortunate when his attempted clearance struck Burns and rebounded back into his hands.

Fortune favoured the hosts once again in the 57th minute when a deep cross by St Juste cannoned back into play off the crossbar with Ally Brown firing the rebound wide of the far post.

Jack Dorney wasted another free kick from a good position but it was Hyde who finished the stronger with substitute Tom Pratt causing problems on the right and Grant Shenton producing good saves to deny Sam Summerbee and David Brown.

And so the game went to the dreaded penalty shoot-out with Hyde clinically disposing all five of their spot-kicks and a miss by Trafford skipper Chris Palmer consigning his side to a 5-4 defeat.

Tom Baker’s team will be hoping to bounce back from this defeat, and extend their unbeaten league run to five games, on Saturday when they entertain Glossop North End at the First Point Shawe View Stadium, kick off 3 p.m., before travelling to Glossop on Tuesday night for a Manchester Premier Cup Tie kicking off at 7-45 p.m.
