The latest memories of the Bingham Cox Cup remember two very good years during the middle of the noughties for clubs based to the south of St Albans.
It began in 2005 when Park Street captured the trophy for the first time since a back-to-back success in 1981.
They did it with a 6-2 victory over Redbourn before celebrating with the club’s youth team on the Clarence Park pitch.
It was the culmination of a fantastic season for Street who also picked up two other titles.
They won the Mid Herts League Premier Division at a canter, winning all 16 games and scoring the most goals, 73, before adding the Benevolent Shield to their haul with a 4-2 win over The Bull.
Their top goalscorer was Matt Newman who bagged himself 34 goals to finish as the top marksman in the league.
Park Street could have added the Bingham Cox Cup to the trophy cabinet one year later but a 3-2 defeat meant it was Colney Heath A who did the celebrating instead.
