Cheadle’s lead was doubled on 23 minutes when a Joseph Shaw long ball found Webb who beat the off-side trap and scored with ease past the oncoming keeper.

Atherton had their first real chance on 60 minutes, but Cheadle keeper Stephen Piggott was on hand to pull off a good save, which then saw the resulting shot hit the post.
 
With the game drawing to a close, Cheadle sealed the game on 83 minutes when Magida picked up the ball inside the Atherton half before running unchallenged to the edge of the area and firing a low shot into the net – a superb solo goal and contender for Goal of the Season.
