Fresh from knocking out favourites Penn & Tylers Green in the Berks & Bucks County Intermediate Cup quarter finals, Risborough Rangers have drawn Hellenic League Division 1 East promotion hopefuls Woodley United in the last four.

Woodley made short work of Great Horwood on Saturday, beating the North Bucks League side 5-0 while Risborough defeated Penn 4-2 on penalties after finishing the match goal-less.

Posting on twitter, Woodley manager Michael Herbert said: “Toughest draw we could of got but to win the cup you have to beat the best. Looking forward to the challenge.”
