FC United can finally look forward to their first Cup semi-final after a comfortable win in Yorkshire.

Karl Marginson’s side eased past Silsden with a 3-0 win in the quarter-finals of the Northwest Counties League Challenge Cup.

Three first half goals from Josh Howard, Simon Carden and Rory Patterson were enough to win the match in front of 1,564 fans at Keighley’s Cougar Park Rugby ground.

FC United face a two legged semi-final but could be coming home if they win through.

The Cup Final last year was played at their own Gigg Lane and this year’s venue is still to be decided.
