Yaxley postponed their semi-final tie at Eynesbury because of a shortage of players, but the cup committee decided against throwing them out of the competition. Eynesbury protest against that decision and were then expelled for failing to agree a different date!

Huntingdon won’t be pushovers if they repeat the form of their 2-1 semi-final win at top-flight Deeping Rangers.
