Retford teams in cup final


The final of the Gainsborough and District Sunday League Annie Lawson Cup will be an all-Retford affair after Albertos and AFC Ordsall won their semi-finals.

Albertos, having already wrapped up the Division Two title, have the chance to win a league and cup double after a hard-fought 3-1 win over Crooked Billet.

In a close tie, Albertos showed the better finishing to secure a place on the Northolme on 3rd May.

AFC Ordsall put a fairly poor league season behind them to win a place in the final with a 2-0 success over a much-improved Black Horse.

In the Junior Trophy, Westwoodside FC will play Horse & Jockey, winners the previous week, after a semi-final victory over near-neighbours Kings Arms Reserves.

The tie went to extra-time before Westwoodside edged it 3-2.

Supporters are welcome to attend the finals.

In Division 1, Smiffys United and BFC Clumber were involved in a see-saw match full of goals.

The Retford team finished the stronger to take the points after a 5-3 victory that left United second-from-bottom, three points behind Clumber.

In Division Three, Horse & Jockey and Ropery Inn completed their league fixtures as Horse & Jockey won 7-5 to finish mid-table in their first season — and they still have a cup final to look forward to.
