Birstall Victoria and Dewsbury Celtic are through to the Heavy Woollen Jim Brown Cup semi-finals following victories on Wednesday night.

Celtic thrashed Ossett Trinity 60-16 in their quarter-final, while Vic edged out Pennine Premier Division side Dewsbury Moor 20-18.

Holders Shaw Cross Sharks withdrew from the competition due to fixture congestion for their National Conference and Pennine League sides, so opponents Thornhill Trojans received a bye to the semis.

Batley Boys are already through to the last four having beaten Hanging Heaton before Christmas.
