THE Mid Cheshire Sunday League Cup final will be between the Premier Division big guns Thatched Tavern and Saxon's.
They both won their semi-finals at the weekend, with Tavern strolling past Division One hopefuls Holmes Chapel 3-0. Ryan Broadhead, Pete Gibbon and Mike Clarke were the scorers.
Saxon's found First Division Winsford neighbours Rifleman more resilient and it took an extra-time strike from Rob Hopley - the only goal of the game - to see them through.
Holmes Chapel still have their big day against Saxon's in the Mid Cheshire District FA Cup final to come. Saxon's, meanwhile, are viewing a possible treble, though Chapel's Wine Bar went top of the Premier Division this week. All their rivals have a variety of games in hand, however.
