Twum strikes for the final

By Gary Brigden

An Ollie Twum goal in the second minute was enough to put the firsts into the SCOMB final, after a 1-0 win over Hanworth Villa.

The early goal, coming after the keeper had spilled a Brendan Murphy-McVey shot, settled any nerves and allowed us to settle into the game, with Murphy-McVey twice going close to increasing the lead.

Villa were struggling to gain much of a foothold in the game, with the Rovers defence well marshalled by Man of the Match Asa Rixon-Nicholls, alongside the impressive Charlie Alexiou.

Villa thought they had a way back into the game early in the second half, after Matt Tanton was pinged for handball, but after consulting with his linesman the decision was overturned. It was too be the last real action of the game until deep into stoppage time, and Rovers fell asleep at a corner, but somehow a free header from 3 yards was put wide.
