Crewe progress into the final of the Cheshire Premier Cup after a youthful reserve side soundly beat Stockport.

Clayton Donaldson was the most experienced in the Alex side, which also contained Danny Shelley and Patrick Ada, and it was Donaldson who got a brace to help the Alex to a good 5-2 win at Edgeley Park.

Young academy striker Jon Stephens opened the scoring early on but two goals in quick succession for Stockport saw the game turned on it’s head.

The scores were level at half time with Donaldson getting his first of the game and allowed the Alex to push on; a further three goals from Chris Clements, AJ Leitch-Smith and Donaldson completed the win.

Crewe now face the winner of Tranmere vs Macclesfield, who play on the 24th Feb, in the Cheshire Premier Cup final.
