Semi-final cup draws unveiled

CUP HOLDERS New Mills face a trip to reigning Peak Sports Derbyshire & Cheshire League Division One champions Dinting in the first of two mouth-watering ties in this season’s Bissenden Cup semi-finals.

The other fixture in the 1st XI knockout competition sees Hawk Green entertain Hayfield.

In the Hawke Trophy, Dinting’s pursuit of a second successive 2nd XI knockout cup success sees them make the trip to Woodley, while last season’s beaten finalists Birch Vale host Mottram.

Ties for both senior competitions will be played on Sunday July 22, with a reserve date set for Sunday July 29.

The semi-final draw has also been made for the under-17 knockout competition, the Compstall Cup, in which Dove Holes and Mottram will have home advantage over Hawk Green and Buxton respectively.

These games will be played on Thursday July 19, with a reserve date set for Thursday July 26.
