Cappleman then turned provider as he crossed for Joe Gage to tap in but Heslerton hit back as Nick Schofield hit a brace to put them 3-2 up.

With 15 minutes left on the clock, Cappleman’s free-kick flew straight in after his attempted cross evaded everyone in the box.

The turnaround was complete when Cappleman headed in with only a few minutes left on the clock, handing Town a place in the semi-finals.

A Kris Tate free-kick handed Gary Dixon’s men the lead again but Falsgrave again battled back to 2-2, despite Seamer pleading with the referee for a foul on keeper Chris Ferrey.

It was a case of more of the same after the break when Matty Dawson launched an audacious effort from 50yards that flew in to put Seamer 3-2 up.
