KIRKLEES League side Black Bull Shepley are through to the final of the Learner Driver Training Centre Huddersfield Sunday League’s Rollinson Cup.
But chances of a showpiece showdown with fellow KSL team Woodfield Park were ended when they were unable to raise a side for the other semi-final against Huddersfield Irish Centre.
It means reigning Sunday League champions and Rollinson Cup holders Irish are through to their third successive final, at Golcar on April 17.
But it was more woe for Woodfield, who have gone out of three cup competitions in eight days after defeats to Pear Tree in the Huddersfield FA Sunday Challenge Cup quarter-finals and Pak Rangers in the West Riding FA Sunday Trophy semis.
Gary Bradley was Bull’s hero, grabbing a hat trick in the 3-0 win over Sunday League side Marsh FC.
It’s the first season KSL sides have been able to enter the Rollinson Cup, and a solid show ensured Bull were always on course to make the final.
Marsh, last season’s beaten finalists, never really got going and Bradley notched after eight and 15 minutes, with Jason Thorpe setting him up both times.
The clinching goal came after 58 minutes, when Bradley exploited some slack defending by Marsh.
Pak Rangers made the semi-finals of the KSL’s Get Smart Insurance Challenge Cup with as 3-2 win over Pear Tree.
