Referee : Lee Miller
Assistants : John Watson & Rob Southgate
4th Official : Andy Pitts

The last cup final of the season saw Sokretez Res and Colchester Crusaders face off for the Wally Castle Invitational Trophy at Lawford FC.

Both sides actually made their way out of the same group stage, Sokretez finishing above the Crusaders on goal difference.

Both sides then made it through the quarter and semi finals to find themselves face to face once again in the final.

A cagey first half saw the sides go in with the scoresheet blank at half time but six minutes after the restart Dave Voss put Colchester Crusaders in front.

Despite a spirited effort from the Soks it was the Crusaders who scored next, Nidal Aslam doubling the lead after eighty-four minutes and just to make sure, Ryan Knill-Jones knocked in a third after ninety.

Full Time : Sokretez Res 0 - 3 Colchester Crusaders

Many thanks to Lawford FC for the use of their facilities and to Referee Secretary Mr Simon Lewis for presenting the trophies.
