Bridlington Town will aim to reach the East Riding Senior Cup final tonight, when they take on Central Midlands League side Westella VIP.

The semi-final will be played at the East Riding County FA headquarters in Hull, and the Seasiders will go into the match as strong favourites.

Manager Gary Allanson said: “It is great for the club and the players to have the opportunity of playing in a semi-final as that’s what football is all about, playing in big games and having the chance of winning trophies.

“Westella are in great form at the moment, as we are, and are also full of confidence and pushing for promotion from their own league so it should be a really good game.

“We have a couple of players cup-tied and a couple unavailable due to work commitments, but we will do our utmost not to leave any stone unturned as we want to get to the final, especially with it being held at the KC Stadium again.”

The winners of tonight’s game will play Hull United in the final, after they beat Hull City’s under 21s in the first semi-final on Tuesday.
