WOODHOUSE Grange shocked York to reach the semi-finals of the Rudgate Brewery Yorkshire Leagues’ Knockout Cup - beating the Clifton Park side by five wickets.

The tie at Sandhill Lane guaranteed at least one semi-finalist would come from Yorkshire Premier League North as Woodhouse entertained their title rivals.

Duncan Snell (68) top scored for the visitors, who were 100-1 at one stage but then collapsed to 161 all out, Steve Burdett (3-40) and James Finch (3-26) both picking up three wickets.

Chris Wood (32) and Christopher Bilton (30) looked on course to steer the home side to a comfortable victory but after three wickets fell in as many overs and it needed an assured innings from Tom Young - ending on 48 not out - to book Grange’s place in the semi-final.

Woodhouse Grange’s opponents in the next round will be South Yorkshire side Aston Hall, who beat an understrength Harrogate side by nine wickets.

Gate skipper George Ross made 46 and William Bates an unbeaten half-century but a total of 203-7 was never likely to be sufficient, and so it proved as Aston Hall raced to the target with seven overs to spare.

A century opening stand between Matthew Cartwright (83no) and Joshua Marsh (44) set the platform and an unbeaten 66 off 34 balls by Awas Zia sealed the Yorkshire League North side's fate.

Yorkshire Academy reached the last four in both the previous years and have done so again in 2018 after their convincing victory over Appleby Frodingham at Brumby Hall.

Bilal Anjum (78) and skipper Benjamin Birkhead (116) gave the visitors the perfect start with an opening stand of 170, which was enhanced by a quick 40 from Tom Loten.

The total of 258-7 was well beyond the hosts, who were all out for 148, brothers Harry and Joshua Sullivan finishing with identical figures of 3-31.

The Academy's reward is a home tie against South Yorkshire outfit Barnsley Woolley Miners.
