Kidsgrove Athletic lost 3-2 to Stoke City U-23’s in their Staffordshire Senior Cup quarter-final at the Autonet Insurance Stadium on Wednesday night.
Stoke raced into a 3-0 lead with Gabriel Kyeremateng netting a brace for the visitors and then Ethan Varian scoring a penalty.
Oliver Jepson pulled a goal back on 75 minutes, Grove continued to battle away and their persistence was rewarded as James Butler pulled another goal back on 87 minutes, but it wasn’t quite enough as Stoke held on to move into the semi-final.
