Former Blades legend Eddie Colquhoun will be keeping a close eye on the big Sheffield Sunday Senior Cup Final tomorrow night.

For entre half Eddie, who made over 400 appearances in a Sheffield United career spanning 10 years, has footballing grandsons Alex and Arron Wiles turning out for surprise finalists Fitzwilliam Arms.

Eddie, a Scottish international who helped United into the top flight in 1971, was at the semi-final as the Rawmarsh-based club continued their tremendous run to the final in which they meet West Melton side Westville at the New York Stadium (7.30).

Fitzwilliam are champions of Division One of the Rotherham Sunday League so move into the top flight for the first time.

Westville are vying again for the Mexborough Sunday League title which they won for the first time last season.

They have reached six cup finals this season and they will be back at the New York Stadium on Thursday, May 12 when they face AFP in the Rotherham Charity Cup Final (7).
