FRICKLEY Athletic progressed to their second cup semi-final of the season last night when they defeated Stocksbridge Park Steels 2-0 in the last-eight of the Sheffield Senior Cup.

Goals from Ben Turner and Ollie Ryan saw the Blues through against their Evo-Stik Premier Division rivals at the Tech5 Stadium, while Steve Dickinson saved a second-half penalty to help the hosts book a semi-final date.

Frickley had already progressed to the last four of the Doodson Sport Cup, where they’ll travel to Rushall Olympic on Tuesday, March 20.

The draw for the semi-final of the Sheffield Senior Cup has yet to take place but details will be published online and in print in due course.
