"Clubs must be represented by their strongest available team. Youth teams are not acceptable in this
competition. Any Clubs failing to comply with this rule shall be fined not less than 500.00"
To
Right there in the CSC rules http://www.cheshirefa.com/~/media/countysites/cheshirefa/documents/cups/2015-16/senior-cup/senior-cup-competition-rules-2015-16.ashx

But doubt they'll try to enforce it. Crewe may well open the floodgates.
So Billy Big Bollocks can do whatever they want.....the rest of us tug our forelocks. As opposed to the Cheshire FA who have a proven propensity for tugging their foreskins.
to be fair we also play a weak side in the tournament

The year we beat them in the final at Witton it was against their reserves, so maybe its how you define strongest team. Maybe it was all their best reserves, and is under 21 a convenient way of dodging the term youth team?

FL clubs have traditionally fielded a reserve team in the Senior Cup. Anyone below FL level used to be expected to field a first team. Now that Crewe are the only FL member club in the Cheshire FA it would be interesting to know how Tranmere's selection v Cheadle (very much 'An XI') or Macc's at Cammell Laird was viewed by the Cheshire FA. (Chester seem to have fielded a strong enough team to win their 1st Round game by a street.) My fear is that there's one rule for ex-FL clubs & another for the rest of us, which would be a travesty. The right way for the Cheshire FA to behave would be to treat any club involved in a national or regional league (i.e. down to & including Conf North) in the way they used to treat FL clubs - i.e. reserve strength sides acceptable - but they won't, of course ...

Altrincham fielded a team against Northwich at Flixton last season that was mainly made up or reserve team players.

... and presumably paid a fine. My point is that for any club in the FL, Conf Nat or Conf North to field such a team in the CSC should be acceptable to the Cheshire FA; my suspicion is that they differentiate between ex-FL clubs & the rest, which if true would be totally wrong.

To be honest, the FL sides shouldn't be in it. It went downhill from that point.

A beating like that is going to do wonders for those lads.

Low point for the club?

How can we treat such a long standing competition so poorly?

As for the qualities of our reserve team, what really is the point? And what have they learnt tonight?

That they're not as good as full time Crewe's under 21's

With the first team having such little game time pehaps they could've had a slightly stronger side,I take it the side was the youth and not the rather pointless reserve side
