Skew Bridge made it a hat-trick of trophies with a superb victory over London Road in the Herts Ad Sunday League Challenge Cup final.

They had already claimed the Knockout Cup and the Premier Division title before the simply blew their opponents away at Toulmin Drive, winning 6-1.

It took 20 mins to get going but once Harry Hunt scored from the spot, Stuart Brown's run having been ended, it was always Skew's to lose.

Hunt made it two with a sharp volley and Ryan Plowright added a third before half-time from a free-kick.

Another surging run from Brown and another penalty converted by Hunt made it four and although Road pulled one back, Mark Hitchcock and then Hunt again, his fourth of the day, sealed a comprehensive triumph.
