Ely Rangers will face either Cardiff Comos or FC Cwmaman in the final to be played at USW Treforest on 11 May.

Also in cup action, this time in the Hugh James Solicitors SWFA Senior Cup Semi-Final were Cardiff Airport who faced a difficult task against FC Cwmaman however, after a turbulent week, their cup hopes were dashed going down 3-0.

In Championship action Vale United eased their relegation worries with a 2-1 victory over Treforest at Corntown.

Goals from Will Thyer and Ryan Hughes moved them out of the relegation zone. 

Another team in the relegation zone were Sully Sports who played bottom club Garw SBGC at Sully.

Sully came out 5-2 winners despite going down to 10 men inside the opening 20 minutes!

Goals from Nick Hooper, Connor McInery and a hat-trick from half time substitute Luke Boyle gave Sully a valuable three points.

A further Vale team with relegation worries are Division 1 West’s Holton Road. They travelled to high-flying Bettws.

After leading the table, Bettws form has suddenly dipped and Holton Road took full advantage winning 4-0. 

Goals from Shaun Jachontow, Bradley O’Loughlin (two) and Nathan Williams gave Holton Road an invaluable win.
