Champions Ryburn have been paired with much-improved Warley Rangers in the quarter-finals of the Halifax AFL’s Skircoat Green Physiotherapy Challenge Cup.

There is also likely to be a rousing Calder Valley derby with Calder ‘76 hosting Midgley United.

There could be little between Copley United and Shelf United while the participants in the remaining tie are a long way from being confirmed.

The West Riding is still to adjudicate on the abandoned Northowram versus Elland United first round tie with AFC Crossleys awaiting the winners.

One of those three teams will eventually play either Elland Allstars or Denholme United, whose meeting last Saturday was postponed because of travellers on the pitch at Elland.

Skircoat Green Physiotherapy Challenge Cup, third round: AFC Crossleys or Northowram or Elland United v Elland Allstars or Denholme United, Calder 76 v Midgley United, Copley United v Shelf United, Ryburn United v Warley Rangers.

To be played on Saturday, November 29 (1.45).

Ziggy’s Metro Cars Invitation Cup, semi-finals: Ryburn United Res v Shelf United Res, St Columbas v Midgley United Res.

Dates and venues to be decided
