Yaxley will meet holders St Ives in the final on May Bank Holiday Monday after snatching victory from the jaws of defeat.

The Cuckoos looked to be on their way out against a side managed by former Yaxley manager Paul Humphreys when they trailed to a ninth minute goal scored by Dave Stratton, but youngster Sam Makansi levelled in the final minute of the ninety.

Ricky Hailstone gave Yaxley the lead five minutes into extra time with a wind assisted free kick from 40 yards but a quick response from Hampton saw Glen Gilbert level a minute later. Hailstone's second goal after 109 minutes won the tie for the Cuckoos.

Yaxley: John Feetham, Ben Russell, Hamish Curtis, Matt Parrott, Anthony Thomas, Lee Blewett (Teddy Rimmell), Dan Fountain (Sam Makansi), Danny Steward, Scott Cunningham (Chris Gospel), Ricky Hailstone.
