The villager?s consolation came via Phil Sullivan. It took extra time to decide the outcome of the Ashley Rovers ? Cotton Hill tie with the Cotton boys eventually winning 4-2. Martin Hayward and Jamie Bernham found the target for Ashley, however a double for Neil Jarrett and singles from Chris Gale and Dirk Camplin ensured Cotton Hill?s progress into the next round.
