4th Official : Kelvin Llewellyn
A windy one up at Lawford FC saw CO4 Ultras and Ramsey & Mistley Res meet up for the final of the Ernie Osborne Challenge Cup.
With CO4 having gone unbeaten in the league all season (and for the second season in a row) this was going to be a difficult game for the Ramsey & Mistley side.
A positive start from both sides though as the game got into its stride but it was CO4 who went into an early lead on eight minutes thanks to a goal from Adie Cant
The rest of the half was a tight affair with no more additions to the scoreline.
Into the second half and Ramsey & Mistley were soon level thanks to a cheeky backheel from Jay Munro
after forty-eight minutes.
A brace from Harry Hewes
after sixty-eight and eighty minutes put CO4 in the driving seat and a fourth from Jake Mitchell
with three minutes to go sealed it.Full Time Extra Time : CO4 Ultras 4 – 1 Ramsey & Mistley Res.
Many thanks to Lawford FC for the use of their facilities and Mr Ernie Osborne for attending the final, choosing the Man of the Match and presenting the trophies.
