It did not start out so smoothly for United as Sprotbrough began the brighter and took the lead inside the first 15 minutes with a goal from Tino Ushamba.

Denaby responded well and quickly equalised through Rumble.

With half time fast approaching, Hale drilled in a superb free kick from 30 yards to give his side the advantage at the break.

Sprotbrough remained steadfast in the second half but faced increasing pressure from a Denaby side determined to make sure of the victory.

Ager ensured some breathing space with a fine volley.

But they could not fully breathe easy until the final moments when skipper Makie made it four.

United will now face U17 Premier Division runners up Warmsworth Lions in the final at Rossington Main on April 29 in a 7pm kick off.
