Match Details

Scorers: Cobb 3 (1p)


Royal Holloway Old Boys put aside their recent mixed league form and produced a convincing performance to reach the League Cup final at the expense of an injury hit Spartans Youth. Harry Cobb was the main man with a fine hat-trick.

The Old Boys were given the perfect start on 11 minutes when Chris O’Reilly was impeded in the area and Cobb dispatched the resultant penalty. Possession was shared in the remainder of the half but neither goalkeeper was forced into action.

The intensity increased in the second half with plenty for the referee to deal with, however on 69 minutes, Cobb hit his second, a dipping drive from 20 yards. The goal seemed to knock the stuffing out of Spartans, and Cobb completed his hat-trick on 77 minutes with a neat finish following a move down the left wing. The Old Boys could have added further goals, Rob Attreed coming closest with a left foot drive.

The Old Boys will play Chessington in the final in early May, and wish Spartans the best of luck for the remainder of the season.
