After ousting two Ridgeons Premier sides the Tigers came up short against opposition from a step below.

Stuart Jopling opened the scoring three minutes before half time from a Gary Pratt cross and with a quarter of an hour remaining his second goal settled the contest, Paddy Turley the provider on this occasion.
The Tigers finished with ten men after Rob Greetham was dismissed late on.
