FRICKLEY Athletic will host Athersley Recreation in the quarter-finals of the Sheffield and Hallamshire Senior Cup.

The Blues thumped old foes Worksop Town 6-2 in the last round to book their place in the last eight and their reward is another home tie on the road to Hillsborough.

Athersley are currently top of Division 1 of the Northern Counties East League following promotion last season and will be keen for the scalp of higher-division opposition.

The match is due to be played on, or the week proceeding, Saturday, March 9 but a confirmed date will be confirmed by the club in due course.
