PETER MORRISON TROPHY FINAL

HEROIC CORIN MAKES OAKS PAY THE PENALTY
HENDON UNITED SPORTS CLUB A 2 OAKWOOD A 2 AET (Hendon won on penalties)
Russell Corin was the hero of the hour as a hat-trick of saves in the shoot-out ensured that Hendon United secured the first part of a possible treble in a nail-biter at Wingate & Finchley.

Yoav Lebens put Hendon ahead in the first half, but Oaks levelled through Bobbie Cousins early in the second half.

Avidan Last showed he continues to have a nose for the big moment, when he headed in from close-range after a cross from the right in extra-time. However, 90 seconds from the end Quinn latched onto a lofted ball and looped it in to force penalties.

SUPER SALMON KEEPS TEAM SAFE
FAITHFOLD A 1 FC TEAM A 6
RICHARD SALMON was the hat-trick hero as FC Team secured their top-flight status with a handsome win over last season's champions.

A double from Andy Sheena and one from James Korn sealed a much-deserved win.

Faithfold's consolation came through Rocky Spitzer.

Stand-in Team boss Jonathan Pearl told JC Sport: "We are delighted to have guaranteed our safety in the Premiership after a long hard season. We know full well that when we have our strongest squad available we are a match for anybody in this division.

"It was a real old school FC Team performance full of pace and desire and we just wanted it a lot more from the off. Credit to Zuriel though as he had an under-strength squad yet didn't complain once and just got on with it.

"A special mention needs to be said for Pete Moss for whom we celebrate the three-year anniversary of his passing tomorrow. I think the boys played with him in mind today and I have no doubt that he would be so proud of the effort, determination and passion of everyone today!"

"We also need send condolences to Mitch and the whole Young family after the passing of his grandfather, Paul, yesterday. We wish them all a long life and only happiness in the future."

Faithfold boss Zuriel Solomon told JC Sport: "It was a very contrasting season to the one before and nowhere near the standards we set. But we have to remain positive and build again for next year."

A deadly double from Adam Arnold kept Neasden ahead of Brady in a promotion six-pointer at Rowley Lane.

Brady's goals came through Stanley Offord and David Newman.

NWN boss Stirling Kaye told JC Sport: "We were 2-0 up at half-time so to not go on and win was very disappointing, but we can only blame ourselves as we had many great chances in the second half and we let ourselves down with our finishing and our final ball."
