Skew Bridge beat Boars AFC 3-1 to win the Herts Sunday Senior Cup.


Skew Bridge got revenge for last year’s Herts Sunday Senior Cup final defeat against Boars AFC with a 3-1 win over the same opponents.

Skew nearly opened the scoring in the first few minutes as man of the match Mark Hitchcock broke through and fired narrowly wide.

He wasn’t to be denied at the second time of asking, though, as he took a deft flick from Chris Jones in his stride and curled a shot into the bottom corner.

The second goal started with a long free-kick by Steve Hawes. Ben Martin beat the keeper to the aerial ball before calmly sweeping it into the net.

Trailing 2-0, Boar came out fighting in the second half but their attacks were dealt with by Nathan Dawes and Tom Smith.

As the game past the hour mark, Skew Bridge but the tie beyond doubt as David Keenleyside released Hitchcock, who rounded the keeper and rolled the ball into the empty net.

The late introductions of Elliot Smith, Ben Dawes and Dan Bathurst almost saw Bridge increased their lead but, even a late consolation goal, was not going to change the result.
