Two sides have booked their place in the semi-finals of the Corinthian Cup following victories over the weekend.

James Peagram scored twice with Jonah Gregory and William Sherrin both netting to book a place in the semi finals against either Repton Park or Upshire.
In the other quarter-final, it took an extra half an hour to separate the sides as Liberty Stars ended level at 2-2 after normal time against Flanders.

They now go on to face Barking in the semi-finals in the new year.

In a congested mid-table, Hornchurch Oakmont have moved up a number of places to fourth position as a four-goal performance from George Terry and a Nathan Adams hat-trick carried their side to a thumping 7-0 win against Grey Area.
And rounding things off was one of the games of the day where Heathside and Goresbrook participated in a nine-goal thriller in Dagenham.
