An early goal is all that separated Wythenshawe Amateurs and West Didsbury & Chorlton in the early kick off of the Saturday Groundhop games in front of a crowd of five hundred and forty six.

Four minutes into the game and the hosts scored what would turn out to be the only goal of the game. Chrissy Howard converted a half volley into the back of the net at the far post from close range. 

An uneventful first half ended in controversy as West Didsbury and Chorlton felt they should have had a clear penalty. George Blackwell was brought down in the box by Amateurs keeper Kyle Haslam but the referee waved away the appeals for a penalty.

Wythenshawe Amateurs created the clearer chances in the second half and came close on a couple occasions however some fantastic saves from visiting custodian Andrew Jones kept his side in the game. 

The hosts held out for the three points as the hoppers now move across town to visit Wythenshawe Town.
