Cherrington Cup winners Chilvers went into the League Cup final looking to win leg two of their treble attempt.

Ashley Keegan put Chilvers in front but England's Hope equalised through Paul Richardson. Michael Chow turned the game on its head but Danny Jezeph equalised. Hope again went ahead through Joe Whyborn's audacious lob and looked set to win it when stand-in keeper Dean Jimson saved a Jezeph penalty. But in the seventh minute of injury time, Keegan bagged his second to take the game into extra-time. Richardson made it 4-3, Kris Smith made it 4-4, but Hope had the final laugh by winning the penalty shoot-out 4-1.

In the Hardy/Sheen final, Terrington beat River Lane 6-1. Robert Palmer, Dean Twaite-Smith, Simon Bird, Matty Prudence and Joe Jackson (2) scored for the victors. Ivo Lipovski netted Lane's consolation.

In league action, Hunstanton were crowned Division Two champions as nearest rivals Long Sutton lost 2-1 at home to Clenchwarton. Ten-man West Lynn beat CR Eastern Province 2-1 while Elm and Adrian Flux drew 0-0.
