They were forced to come from be­hind to earn a quar­ter-fi­nal win over Harold­eans. Jor­dan Brookes opened the scor­ing for the Merseysiders be­fore Gaswirth and Si­mon Lachs net­ted.

And for di­rec­tor of foot­ball Gaswirth, abig­day­outhas­been15yearsin­wait­ing. He said: “We are due a run in the Feldman. It would be incredible if we could reach the fi­nal. Now we are tak­ing this se­ri­ously. We won’t win the league but we are tar­get­ing the cups. I think if we can avoid Leeds Mac­cabi in the last-four then we will be con­fi­dent of pro­gress­ing.”

Harry Roache (2), Jack Franks and Jonathan Franks helped Heaton Park Rovers stun Oakhill Lions 4-2 in the first round as the stu­dents saw their 100 per cent start to the sea­son ended in sur­pris­ing fash­ion.

Moishe Hasid (3) and Jonny Rash in­spired MJSL ti­tle hope­fuls Manch­ester Mac­cabi Yel­low to a 4-3 suc­cess over South Manch­ester 3rds.

Mac­cabi boss An­ton Radi­ven said: “Our po­si­tion at this stage proves it is no fluke.Weare­upthere­on­merit.Whether we can stay there I don’t know, but we will be giv­ing it our best shot.”
