Sykes Cup / Paddock Shield Quarter Final Draw

9th June 2017   

​A mouthwatering "box-office" style clash has been thrown up in a quartet of fantastic looking Quarter final ties. Current holders Delph & Dobcross will travel to joint Premiership leaders Hoylandswaine in a fixture that has nearly always featured thrills and spills between these two talented sides.

The 2016 finalists Shepley will travel to Broad Oak; a testing affair against Jack Hargreaves' in-form team who set up the clash after winning well away at Golcar.

Honley, who have made it through to the Quarter Final for the first time since 2012 will stage an intriguing clash against Scholes. Simon Kelly's men had to dig deep to wriggle through against Moorlands and will welcome home advantage where they haven't lost since the opening match of the season.

The final tie will see Skelmanthorpe try to put their Premiership inconsistencies to one side as they host Armitage Bridge at Lidgett Lane. James Crossland's men have seen off both Cumberworth United and Lepton Highlanders in the previous rounds but will face an altogether different prospect against a team who have hit a decent run of form of late and coincidentally;y beat Skelmanthorpe in their recent reverse fixture in the league.
