    South Manchester set up a final against Brady in Manchester on April 28 after romping home 4-0 against first division Camden at the Armitage.

    Mark Stewart put the hosts in front with a long-range free-kick and they didn't look back. Further strikes from Tom Cantor, Michael Stratton and David Chaytow completed the rout.

    There was an element of fortune about South's opener as Stewart's free-kick from the right was misjudged by the Camden keeper and found its way in.

    With the bit between their teeth, Cantor doubled South's lead after Stratton had headed a corner back a cross goal for Cantor to add the finishing touch.

    The goal of the game saw a fine move down the right after good work by Harvey Kaye ending with Chaytow tapping home and Stratton sealed the win with a header at the far post from a corner.

    South Manchester player-manager Loz Newman told JC Sport: "I'm really delighted to have made the final. Camden worked incredibly hard for the entire 90 minutes, but I think we just had a bit of extra quality when needed. I wish Camden well in their promotion push.

    "I don’t usually single players out but our captain Michael Stratton lead us superbly. It is a huge bonus to our season and we have done fantastically well to get to Boundary Park, but now we have to turn our attention back to trying to retain the league title, something the club has never done before."

    Camden player-manager Josh Marks told JC Sport: "I was very disappointed with our performance. We really let ourselves down on the day. South Manchester deserved the win they are definitely the best team we've ever played against.

    "I'm proud of the boys for reaching two semi-finals this year, but now we concentrate on the target of promotion that we set for this season."

    South Manchester will meet Brady in the cup final at Boundary Park on April 28, with a 3pm kick-off.
