West Pier beat Newlands 3-1 after extra-time at Pickering Town tonight in the semi-finals of the League Cup.

Neil Thomas edged Pier ahead early on but Matthew Griffiths' header levelled the game up and ensured extra-time was needed at Mill Lane.

Newlands were reduced to 10 men after Drew McCoubrey was sent off after two yellow cards, and Pier made their numerical advantage pay with goals from Will Jenkinson and Sam Garnett in extra-time sealing their win and place in the final against Edgehill or Rosette.
