U18s: Dale 2-2 Crewe (3-2 ET)

19 December 2012

Chris Beech's youth team earn a trip to face Nottingham Forest

Rochdale’s under 18s progressed to the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup on Tuesday night with a 3-2 extra time win over Crewe Alexandra. 

Dale, who recorded wins over Rotherham United and Sheffield United respectively in the previous two rounds, got off to the perfect start after taking the lead on three minutes through Danny Whitehall.

The youngsters went into the interval with the advantage, but Ryan Colclough pulled Crewe Alexandra level on 55 minutes. Rochdale responded almost immediately as Callum Camps fired Dale back into the lead with a wonder strike from distance. 

Crewe came from behind once more, this time Liam Wilson with the goal which would ensure the match went to extra time. However it was substitute Nyall Bell who rifled the ball home from 20 yards in the 105th minute to earn Dale a trip to face Nottingham Forest in the next round.
