CUP fever gripped sides from the BRT Redditch & South Warwickshire Combination on Sunday and there was plenty of success.

In the Worcestershire FA County Cup all five teams won through to the semi-finals and there were also successes in the Bromsgrove Charity Cup.

An 89th minute equaliser from Craig Barnett set up extra time for Bromsgrove General La Coruna at Harriers Trust after a 1-1 draw in the Worcs FA Premier Cup and in the extra 30 minutes Scott Gaffney put the visitors ahead before Chris Glover's penalty sealed a 3-1 victory.

They are joined in the semi-finals by Church Hill and Black Horse who had big wins - 8-0 and 11-1 home successes against Golden Lion Athletic and Wolverley Athletic respectively.

Division Two outfit Washford Lions won 3-1 at runaway Bromsgrove League Division One leaders Rubery Social Allstars in the Worcs FA Junior Cup as Dean Hay starred with two goals and they are joined in the last four by CBH Fasteners who triumphed 3-1 in Malvern against Colwall St James.

The results of the day came in the Bromsgrove Charity Cup in which Studley Sporting won 2-0 at Kidderminster Premier Division championship hopefuls Grange Athletic in the Junior Cup.

Royal Oak Studley beat previous winners and visitors Chaddesley Corbett 3-2 in the Minor Cup and in the same competition Millfield Rovers won 4-3 at home to Sporting Grapevine in their local derby.

There was some league action as Rubery Bridge won 3-0 at Wychbold RBL in the Premier Division, whilst in Division Two James Pugh's hat-trick rewarded Beoley Village's groundstaff for their efforts in getting the game on as they saw off visitors Kingswood Town 4-1.

Goals from Wilkes and Amos helped Rocklands to a 2-1 home victory over Merchants.

The equally enthusiastic Dagnell End Rovers were also rewarded with a 5-1 home win over Peter Simpson XI in Division Three in which Ibrahim Akhlaq scored twice.
