Despite fielding a team primarily made up of fringe players and reserves, Hyde proved too good for Abbey Hey on Tuesday and finished worthy 3-0 winners. Two goals from Neil Tolson and another from Gareth Seddon sealed this tie in the first period.
On the heavy pitch, the Tigers were never in trouble once Tolson had put them in front with a great goal on 24 minutes. He added another 14 minutes later and when Seddon, back from suspension, notched the third three minutes before the break, the game was over as a contest.
In the second half, Steve Waywell brought on reserve players Matty Landregan, Rob Monaghan and Tom Gregson to give them a taste of first team action as Hyde cruised to victory and earn a home semi-final tie against Droylsden in mid February .
