Final spot for Rovers
Story courtesy of Burton Mail
Gresley Rovers made sure of a cup final double on Saturday when they completed a 4-1 aggregate win over Hinckley Athletic in the Bankss League Cup semi-final.
Rovers, already booked to meet neighbours Stapenhill in the Derbyshire Senior Cup final, mastered tricky conditions to secure a 2-1 second leg win and now meet Halesowen Harriers or Lye Town currently tied at 1-1 after their first leg at Lye in the final.

And Rovers skipper Dean Page, whose first half shot turned into the net by a defender to give Gresley the lead is anticipating a meeting with Halesowen.

I expect it will be Harriers in the final and Im backing us for a cup double plus the league title of course, he said afterwards.

Manager Frank Northwood was pleased that his side had returned to winning ways after Tuesdays 4-0 drubbing at Hinckley Town.

I thought the lads showed a lot of commitment today and we certainly made a lot of chances I was very pleased, he said.

I know we missed a lot but weve saved a few for our trip here on Easter Monday for a league game. Once again its nice to be in a cup final and Im especially pleased for the fans.
