It was current Moles manager Roger Herridge’s 49th birthday yesterday and he will be hoping his side can extend the celebration by seeing off his former charges.

Whoever prevails tonight can look forward to facing Fairford Town in the final on Saturday 30th April with Town seeing off Headington Amateurs 3-2 after extra time last Thursday.
