The Bramley side take on Scawthorpe Athletic at the AESSEAL New York Stadium hoping to add to the Rotherham Association Cup they won last week.

Joker are also chasing a third straight Senior Cup, having beaten Redmires in last year's showpiece at Hillsborough and High Noon at the NYS the year before.
