THE big three left in avoided each other in the quarter-final draw of the Sheffield and Hallamshire FA Senior Cup.

Only one of them, Frickley Athletic, got a home tie.

Seeking to go one better than last season’s runners-up spot, the South Elmsall club host Athersley Rec who are enjoying such a fine first season in the Northern Counties East League (NCEL).

They top Division One.

It’s NCEL Division One opposition as well for Stocksbridge Park Steels, who travel to AFC Emley, and also for Sheffield FC who are at Worsborough Bridge.

The remaining tie sees Rossington Main at home to Staveley MW who are in NCEL Cup action tomorrow at home to Hall Road Rangers. The ties will be in early March.
