Twice League Cup winners Swinton Athletic also booked their place in the Semi-Finals, with a 3-1 win over AFC Dronfield at Gosforth Fields.

Grimethorpe Sports were commanding 8-1 winners over Stocksbridge Park Steels Development at the Look Local Stadium.

Goals from Dean Conway (3), Branden Hopkins (2), Ryan Smith and Rickey Tate settled the game 7-4 in Manor Hotel’s favour. A special mention must also go to Billy Smith who also scored an hat-trick in that game for Worsbrough.
