Hardcastle helps Salford claim cup shock

7 November 2015

Rovers' youngster Lewis Hardcastle produced a starring role to help Salford pull off an FA Cup giant-killing on Friday night.

Two second half goals from the Evo-Stik Premier League side helped knock out League 2 team Notts County at Moor Lane.

The midfielder, who went close to opening the scoring on two occasions in the first half, played the key pass to James Poole moments into the second and his cross was swept home by Danny Webber.

The Ammies then doubled their advantage with 17 minutes to go courtesy of Richie Allen's superb solo effort.

Hardcastle was given a standing ovation from the 1400 crowd when he was substituted in injury-time.
