Foalle nets hat-trick as Red Devils go into Final

Spare a thought for Seaton Delaval striker Steve Brown...while he was being rushed to hospital with a dislocated elbow, his team-mates were booking a spot in the Bay Plastics George Dobbins League Cup Final.

They went behind against First Division Ponteland United, who are in the NFA Minor Cup Final, when the experienced Alex Benjamin fired home.

But Delaval's response was devastating, Jack Foalle and Lee Gustard both crashing in doubles in a fifteen minute spell before the break.

Foalle added a fifth with a couple of minutes to go to complete his treble.

First Division Felling Magpies got a semi-final berth against Second Division Grainger Park, who were narrowly beaten in the Amateur Cup Final, with a 2-1 win over Cullercoats.

Dean Martin was on song (get it, ah, someone fetch a gun, man) with the first and James Fenwick added the other while Chris Connor replied for the visitors.

The Final is pencilled in for Wednesday 11th May at Grounsell Park, kick-off 7.00pm.
