Adam Askwith scored Wadsley Bridge Pheasant's first in their 3-2 Sunday Senior Cup victory over Brinsworth Whitehill.

Brinsworth had the better of the first half, took a deserved lead and missed chances to extend it.

But Pheasant took control after the break and Adam Askwith equalised before a wind-assisted John Travis corner put Pheasant ahead.

Brinsworth equalised to take the game into extra time but Pheasant were not to be denied and a Kane Doughty strike won it for them.
