Stocksbridge Park Steels and Worksop Town booked their places in the Sheffield Senior Cup Semi Finals last night.

However, the two Evo-Stik Premier Division sides were made to work hard for their victories.

Stocksbridge left it late before beating South Kirby Colliery 2-0. Andy Ring finally broke the deadlock on 80 minutes after latching onto a lovely pass from Brett Lovell.

It was not until the second minute of stoppage time that Steels could relax when Jack Muldoon found Richard Stirrup inside the box where the midfielder turned smartly to score with a low driven shot.

Worksop edged past Athersley Recreation 1-0 at Cannon Park, Ben Tomlinson scoring after just four minutes.

Tomlinson was denied a second when his 20-yard effort was well saved by Athersley goalkeeper Tim Whitehouse before injury forced the striker off before the break.

Worksop’s Jon Worsnop pulled off an excellent save from to foil Luke Sykes in time added on to prevent the visitors forcing extra-time.
