Har­men were given a late scare by South Manch­ester Sports be­fore pro­gress­ing 4-3 thanks to dou­bles from Adam Arnold and James Ger­sh­field.

Joint-man­ager Joe Marsh said: “The score­line doesn’t really do us jus­tice as we dom­i­nated the ma­jor­ity of the game.”

South’s Toby Levy dis­agreed: “Dom­i­nant and com­fort­able isn’t ex­actly how the game went. I think that is a slightly blink­ered view of the game, made clear by the fact that we felt hard done by and did enough to win the tie.”
