A big week for Penistone Church starts tonight with one of the biggest games they have ever staged.

The County Senior League side expect a bumper crowd when they face Evo-Stik side Worksop Town in the semi-finals of the Sheffield and Hallamshire FA Senior Cup (7.45).

Effectively four divisions below, Penistone will begin as huge underdogs for a place in the Hillsborough final against Frickley Athletic on May 8.

Then on Thursday, Penistone, of the Premier Division, will start as favourites when they face Division One side Thorpe Hesley in the County Senior League Cup Final at Sandy Lane, Worksop (7.30) which was called off three hours before kick off on Thursday due to heavy rain.
