Charlton Rangers 1
London Maccabi Lions Masters 2

Goals from Adam Brand and Warren Leader put London Maccabi Lions Masters into the London FA Vets Cup Sunday section final after they beat Charlton Rangers 2-1.

The visitors forged ahead after 18 minutes when the influential Leader fired a free-kick through the wall and into the net.

Charlton, who had hit the bar twice, equalised 20 minutes from time following a mix-up in the Lions defence.

Lions picked up the pace and Brand popped up with the winner 10 minutes from time. He found space on the edge of the 18-yard box and hit a first-time effort into the bottom corner.

The Lions held on for the last 10 minutes to go into the Sunday section final of the competition on March 1. The winners will play the winners of the Saturday section.

Lions Masters: Jacobs, Steinberg, Henry, Buxton, Miller (sub: Eden), Kyte, Price (sub: Dale), Brand, Leader, Morris, Lewis
