Silverware For 1874 Northwich - After Two Games!

At the end of only their second match together, North West Counties League Division One newcomers 1874 Northwich got their hands on a first piece of silverware at Widnes on Saturday.

A 3-0 success against fellow fans-owned club AFC Rushden & Diamonds, from the United Counties League’s top tier, means Ian Street’s (pictured) new-look side becomes the third to win the Supporters Direct Shield.

First half goals from Lee Hendley and ex-Winsford midfielder Ryan Stewart, plus a late third courtesy of substitute Kyle Wilding, settled the outcome at the Select Security Stadium.

It marks the end of a week to remember, for 1874 defeated neighbours Lostock in an inaugural friendly on Wednesday.
