Saturday’s giantkillers Denholme United and West Central must hit the road for their second round ties in the Halifax AFL’s Skircoat Green Physiotherapy Challenge Cup.
Denholme, who beat holders Stump Cross 2-1 on Saturday, will fancy their chances of reaching the last eight away to fellow Division One side Elland Allstars.
West Central, 5-2 victors away to last year’s beaten finalists Sowerby United, will need to take an even bigger scalp to make further progress.
Last night’s draw handed them a trip to 2012-2013 champions Midgley United, the current Premier Division leaders.
The eye-catching tie in the Invitation Cup, which has a new sponsor in Ziggy Hussain, pits powerful newcomers Illingworth St Mary’s with Ryburn United Reserves, last season’s highest finishing second string in the league.
