Their latest match saw a 1-1 result away at much improved Bidford Juniors, where Jacob Nailor set up a Connor Hughes goal for Bidford on 25-minutes.

At Berryfields Playing Fields, there was to be no cup upset as Tewkesbury Town Colts  overcame Lower Teme Lions.  However, there was one slight surprise, as Pershore Town came away from Bidford Juniors with a slender 1-0 win to seal a semi-final place.
