Danny Clifton scored a late goal as Brookmans Park Reserves shocked the first team by beating them 3-2 in the Herts Intermediate Cup.
After a goalless first half, the teams traded goals with Callum Bayliss grabbing a brace for the first and Christos Louca and Dean Nouble scoring for the reserves before Clifton popped up with the winner.
Skew Bridge Reserves earned safe passage through to the quarter-final with a 3-1 win over Southby. James Hardy headed in Simon Beazley’s corner to get the ball rolling but they failed to add to the lead before the break. Southby levelled 20 minutes from time but Will Bates found the net twice to settle the tie.

Bull & Jacks recorded a 3-0 home win against GJ Auto Broadhall. The goals came from Antony Burns, Junior Ejehu and Brad Harrison.
