Round 2 of the Intermediate Cup pitted Sherwood Colliery A from Division 2 against Premier Division Wollaton III, who have collected just one point this season, and it was no great surprise that Colliery ran out 5–1 winners thanks to a Josh Smyth double and goals from Harry Joule, Dave Bullock and Luke Procter.
