Unlucky Tey Lion Reserves suffered a double blow in the Ernie Osborne Cup final at Birch Park on Sunday.

They had Jason Black stretchered off after just five minutes with a broken leg in the game against Drury Arms and went down in a final for the second time in three weeks.

After their 4-2 defeat at the hands of Newtown Rovers in the Terry Martin cup final, Lion were hoping for a consolation success by after Black's early injury they were beaten 3-1.

Robbie Hudson was the hero for Drury with a hat-trick and Tey Lion's reply came from Roberts.
