The Royal Marine hit six at Easington Southside to dump them out.

Star man Neil McNulty hit four goals, with Andy Arnold bagging a brace.

O’Brien Waste Recycling battled hard to come out on top 6-3 at a tough Witton Gilbert Club side.

It was 3-3 at the interval, with Anderson, Brazier and Grant netting for O’Brien. The visitors, though, dominated the second half to run out good winners, as subs Wilkinson and Robson (2) struck.

Goals from Bell (2), Davies and James Slack gave Ryhope Foresters a glimmer of hope after being behind for most of their tie against Shotton Comrades.

But, after equalising at 4-4, they had to endure penalties and the Shotton keeper was on top form, saving a couple of spot-kicks to send Ryhope crashing out 4-3.

Grange gave a good account of themselves and took the lead a few times, but Lansdowne battled away and won thanks to goals from Jukes, Frame and Taylor (2), with Jack Stanger star man.
