The manager did exactly the right thing tonight, it wasn't about winning the CSC or about boosting our reserve players but about giving us the best chance of staying in the Conference.

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
yeah that is obvious, and by six goals as well, what was the raison de'tre of the reserve team?

What have the young lads learnt tonight? It could only have damaged them. The CSC is an open age competition, as a club we should be protecting young players instead of just throwing them to the wolves to fufill a fixture

I see your point but, we will have 2 good trading sessions this week and hopefully LS had Welling watched at Halifax on Saturday and with a young squad we should be fit and raring to go.

Also Welling had an away game last night, so we have no excuses not to perform on Saturday

Low point for the club?

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

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?
The Crewe side we beat in a 2005 was quite a strong reserve side that contained Steve Jones, Michael Higdon, Justin Cochrane and I think Nicky Maynard was a substitute who had featured quite regularly for Crewe's 1st team. Though Cavell Coo was right back.

It's disappointing that Alty don't take this competition semi-seriously any more. While this competition can get in the way of the more important League campaign. It is always nice to win a trophy. The previous Cheshire Senior Cup Finals involving Alty have been good days out. Especially the 2005 Final.
 I don't think getting stuffed 6 nil has done us any favours.

"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"

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.
I take it any fine incured last night will be paid directly by the managment team personally (or docked from their wages), and not taken from the playing budget

If a strong team has been selected tonight then the same players didn't perform at Welling then I fancy people would be on here Sat night lambasting the club for not playing a weaker team in the CSC.

The CSC is what it is. Love it or loathe it it wont go away.

Those young lads will have loved having the chance to play last night. OK they took a beating but they will all get over it and in the long term it will dust themselves down and it will hopefully make them stronger and more determined.

Learning to lose is as important as celebrating a win.

Last night has gone, now our concentration and effort should be focussed on our Welling fixture in just over 48 hours..

Don't be silly, you would be the first to raise concerns had a 1st teamer been injured last night, pointless competition should be preseason

As someone who has been "thrown to the wolves", so to speak, several times over the course of my (admittedly limited!) footballing career, they have been the times I've learnt the most and which have led to step increases in my game - whether that's been a tournament in Denmark where all other sides but us were academies (representatives from UK - Norwich City and Wilmslow Pumas! Our best result - a 6-1 defeat), a 9-0 drubbing by Oldham U16s or even training with Alty's youth team (not the wolves in any shape or form, but certainly a massive step up from any team I'd been involved in on a consistent basis).

The only time it damaged was the one time when the manager criticised in a frustrated manner rather than building me up. With a manager fully behind, encouraging, giving pointers, giving the space to learn, the benefits of facing players of a much higher calibre can be invaluable. With Lee Sinnott's record with players, I fully trust that he's done that.

why should it when it is obviously a club policy not to take the tournament seriously
