Southampton's youngsters booked a Hampshire Senior Cup semi-final place by beating Bournemouth Poppies 2-0 at the Victoria Ground in February, setting up tomorrow's final four meeting with Basingstoke Town.

Captain Tom O’Connor and defender Jamie Bradley-Green were on target for Saints, who entered the county cup after lifting the Southampton Senior Cup at St Mary's last spring.

Evo-Stik Premier Division outfit Basingstoke, who booked their semi-final spot with a 7-0 thrashing of Fareham Town, will undoubtedly present their toughest challenge yet, as Radhi Jaïdi's side continue to battle on three fronts.

Second in Premier League 2, Saints also have an International Cup semi-final to contend with next week, hosting Dinamo Zagreb at St Mary's on April 10th.

But for now, it's full focus on Hampshire Cup action at The Camrose, with the corresponding semi-final fixture having already been contested by Sholing and Havant and Waterlooville in early March; the latter edging the tie 3-2.

The Vanarama National League side, 21st in their respective division, await the winners of tomorrow night's tie in the final.
