Matt Bell finds a gap in the Crewe Alex defence to score the winning goal in the 115th minute and put Nantwich Town into the semi finals

Nantwich Town and Crewe Alex have agreed to move their pre-season friendly kick-off time to avoid it clashing with England’s World Cup quarter final with Sweden.

The pre-season encounter had been scheduled for this Saturday July 7 at 3pm at the Weaver Stadium, and would normally attract one of the club’s biggest attendances of the year.

But with England also kicking off at 3pm after their dramatic win over Columbia last night, the clubs agreed to move their kick off to midday.

That means fans can watch the Dabbers take on League Two rivals and then retire to the bar to watch England’s quarter-final with the Swedes.

The Alex will be looking for revenge following their Cheshire Senior Cup defeat by Nantwich last season.
