The outstanding tie in the Smurfit Kappa Ken Glover Trophy between Premier Division Gosforth and Division One frontrunners Bransty Rangers was completed and it was Bransty who came out on top, winning 4-3.

Gosforth led 3-1 at half-time with goals from Jack Denwood, Rhys Singleton and Cameron Bowness, but Alan Sim pulled one back for the visitors.

A further goal from Alan Sim and two strikes from Bradley O’Pray sent Bransty into the next round.
