The Charlie White Cup Final
FC Leytonstone 4, JK Silvertown 1
With a 10:30 kick-off, and to allow the Hammers supporters a chance to make it to the London Stadium later in the day, we were already settled in to watch a very high-quality game. Much of the build-up focused on a very tight League campaign, eventually won by FC Leytonstone, but also the recent Ron Garard Final which was a last-gasp win for JK Silvertown. The best two teams in the League this season they proceeded to make this another engaging contest.
Eventually, the quality of set-plays proved the difference as FC Leytonstone was too hot to handle, finessing with style and admired by the watching crowd.
Sublime finishes and splendid on the counter-attack proved to be a compelling difference but there was no doubt the team that held all the cards on the day marched off with the trophy.
The Morfey Cup Final
South Ilford Catholics 2, Debden Sports 1
The second leg of the double finals day saw a great match-up between the top two. Another enthralling encounter was settled by the odd goal in three, although both teams had chances to grab goals to potentially change the outcome.
Super entertainment but eventually the silverware went to the Catholics who were contesting their 4th final in five years.
