Steve Clegg's men led 3-0 at half-time, Kieran Link opening the scoring with 25-yard free-kick before goals from Jamie Stewart and Lloyd Henderson handed Edgehill a strong advantage.

The only goal of a scrappy second-half came from Link, who netted his second from the edge of the box on the hour-mark to complete the scoring and knock Sherburn out of the competition.

Left-back Aidan Thurston shone for Edgehill.
